Fun thumb & finger guards to help stop thumb sucking

We want children to succeed. We want it to be as fun as possible for them. Thumbsie® is the only website in the UK dedicated to helping children to stop thumb and finger sucking.

The Thumbsie® thumb guard is for children who want to stop thumb sucking but need some help during those difficult times. Suited to children aged 3 – 12 years, all of our products are comfortable to wear and can be worn during the day and night.

We’re sure that you’re aware of the problems with thumb sucking, but we have a solution! Over time, our fabric guards can help a child break the thumb sucking habit, without limiting the child’s ability to play or use their hands.

Each custom-made thumb sucking guard is worn like a glove over the thumb and secured around the wrist with Velcro.

There are five sizes to choose from and our simple measuring diagram makes it easy to choose the right size. The Velcro around the wrist means they are adjustable and will fit all wrist sizes. Find out how to measure for your child’s thumb guard.

There are lots of different materials to choose from for boys and girls, making the guards fun to wear whilst aiding the parents and childs fight to discourage thumb sucking. Your child should be wearing the Thumbsie® during the day as well as night time, so we highly recommend buying three Thumbsie® fabric guards for each thumb that they suck.

We also make finger guards to help prevent finger sucking – recommending three for each hand that they suck. That way, you’ll always have enough to maintain good hygiene. You can purchase finger guards or fabric thumb guards by visiting our online shop – we offer a range of fun fabrics.

Please note that we do not recommend our digit sucking products for use by children under the age of 3 without supervision.

We love to reward success so we offer children a free personalised success certificate, once they have stopped their digit sucking habit. Check out our reward system for more details.

We deliver all over the world except USA and Canada. That being said, we accept all major credit cards and PayPal.

In 2017 Thumbsie® reached the finals in two categories for Best Online Business and Best Retail Business in the UK wide Best Women in Business Awards. We have also reached the finals of our local awards for having the Best Online Business in the area.

We have many dentists that recommend our thumb and finger guards all over the world. See what some British dentists are saying about thumb sucking and their views on why they recommend Thumbsie® to their patients.

"Thumbsie is good and awesome and I loved it. I liked choosing the whale and panda for my thumbsie. I am proud of myself for not sucking my thumb and I like my certificate.

Now my toys wear the thumbsie as I don't need them anymore."

Jocelyn age 5 (her own words)

"The transformation has been wonderful to watch, she is much more engaged in family life and seems much happier and more up for trying new things.

We have a different child!"

Hannha (daughter Illiana aged 4)

"As a parent of 2 children, I have been looking for a thumb sucking solution for many years. A lot of the comforting a child associates with thumb sucking is to do with texture and the Thumbsie is a perfect solution to help any child break their habit. "
