Chewable Mushroom Pendant
The mushroom pendant, designed by autistic artist Yvonne Mendoza Rogers, is one of our most durable and versatile pendants. Whether you chew with your front teeth or your molars, no matter what level of chewer you are, the mushroom can accommodate your stimming preferences.
Are you an aggressive or moderate chewer? The thick wide umbrella is perfect for hard chewing. Light chewer? The narrow flexible stem accomodates light chewing with the front or back teeth. Looking for something to suck on? The contoured tip of the stem is the ideal shape--similar to a pacifier or lollipop--and the umbrella can double as a handle. With a textured top and smooth stem, this pendant also provides opportunities for tactile stimming.
Concerned about sensory sensitivities? Our chewy pendants are made from food-grade silicone, a tasteless, odorless material that is ideal for chewing.

Have you ever wanted to have a pacifier handy but were too embarrassed or nervous to keep it around? Was the pacifier just ruining your style or clashing with your outfit?

Using the mushroom's head as a grip you can suck on the stem just like you would a pacifier and once you let it go nobody will know its true purpose. It has the same shape and general measurements as a pacifier but its distinct mushroom design will allow you to keep it close to your heart--Literally! If sucking and or chewing is your stim of choice then don’t wallow in gloom, Use your new No Gloom Shroom!
