[sws_toggle1 title=”What is KidCompanions”]

KidCompanions is the sponsor company of Special Needs Book Review. Kid Companions are a line by Sentio Life Solutions, based in Nova Scotia, Canada. This company was started in 2006 by a mother of 3, Pierrette d’Entremont, with a background in human kinetics and jewelry design.

With her growing children, the owner of Sentio Life Solutions noticed that her daughter, with Tourette Syndrome, SPD and OCD, very much appreciated a heart pendant she had made for her teething sister. She could fidget to focus discreetly and fashionably! Soon, we realized that other parents were looking for such accessories for their special needs children.

With some research we have now made a durable, colorful and safe necklace. Still sourced in North America, our materials are as economical (family friendly) as possible without compromising safety or social responsibility.

Safe, washable and colorful shapes are smooth and pleasing with a hard embossed “dot” surrounded by a rubbery heart or circle.

The pendants are chewable and should last 6-12 weeks, and more avid daily chewers 4-6 weeks. The lanyards are to hold the tool, not for chewing. If a child does chew fabrics, we recommend our undyed 100% organic cotton lanyard. It is durable and free of colorants and allergens.

The heart shape also has an added oval dip similar in shape and function as a worry stone, wonderful for some children.

A custom breakaway clasp will release and can be re-attached with ease. 18” or 20″ necklaces (lanyards) are made with durable 100 % organic cotton that is dyed in bright matching colors, or our newer undyed organic cotton mentioned above..

NEW! Now also available is our clip version on an 8 inch cord made of the same 100 % organic cotton.

They are safe, bpa, phthalate, pvc, lead and latex free accessories made for children-teens.

Kid Companions come in 5 heart colors and a black, white, or blue circle. Watch for new colors and contact us for updates.
