4 yo putting everything in his mouth

My son is 4 and never put things in his mouth much when he was teething - but all of a sudden is putting things in his mouth. Really small things like legos that terrify me that he will choke. His dad & I have told him repeatedly the dangers and also confiscated his toys but he still finds the most random things and puts them in his mouth. I have seen posts about chewers and he doesn't really do that, just keeps things in his mouth. Today I went and got out an old teething necklace I had and he used that a bit. I explained to use it when he wants the feeling of something in his mouth and made it the size of a bracelet for him. But literally 10 mins later I look over and he has something else in his mouth. Anyone had any experience with this or advice as to what I should do?
