The blue t shaped one is also what we use, DS bit the leg off the stick man chew buddy :s but the blue one remains intact.

So sorry have only just seen this.
Our OT isn't particularly helpful tbh and we next to never see her angry
I don't think I've seen a blue one yet so will search a bit harder for that, I have seen the p's and q's though so will look again at those and definitely better at that price -he's costing me a fortune with his excessive chewing!
Will also look at fledglings too, hopefully it will be a bit easier now I know what I'm looking for. Thank you so much for your advice smile

Have you tried blue chewy tubes or the orange P & Qs? These are firmer and may last longer. Also P & Qs are two for £9 instead of just one! Fledglings website has them, also check out chewies on www.exploreyoursenses.co.uk. We have some lengths of tubing that dd has failed to bite through. Not sure where to source them as came from OT. Can you get advice/resources from OT?

Does anyone know what the strongest chewy tube is for a 4 year old? Hes been using the red and green ones and has tried a purple one but he is chewing through them -to breaking point- within a month!!
He is a huge chewer so he NEEDS something to chew on most of the day but I cant afford to keep paying £10 a month and don't want to risk him biting chunks off and accidently swallowing them.
