Little boy in Saudi Arabia stops thumb suckingWe have come across lots of baby/child products in our time as parents of 2 children but this is undoubtedly one of the best products we have come across. Thumb sucking is a notoriously hard habit to break, but the Thumbsie made it a complete non event. I would highly recommend it to any parent.

Dentist and dad recommends Thumbsie in thumbsie reviewAs a parent of 2 children that developed a thumb sucking habit, I have been looking for a 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. I have recommended Thumbsies to a lot of my child patients and parents have said that they were very impressed by how quickly the habit disappeared.

Thumb sucking can cause many orthodontic problems which would need correction with braces in later life. Having a solution like the Thumbsie is much better than letting a situation develop where a brace is needed.

Dentist says no more thumb suckingI recommend the Thumbsie because stopping thumb sucking is a difficult task for all kids. The Thumbsie provides a fun way for the dentist/parent to help the child stop sucking. I love all the different design, there is one for everyone. Kids get so excited to choose one and when they get I, they can’t wait to get started. It works every time I recommend it! Thank you Thumbsie

My son stopped thumb sucking in a month: Thumbsie reviewThank you, my son stopped thumb sucking in a month thanks to Thumbsie® thumb guard. We were told by the dentist last year that his thumb sucking was affecting his teeth, and to give up if possible. We had one evening where we put some yucky paint on his nail and it made us all completely miserable. After that we just tried to discourage him during the day without much success. After researching the options, the Thumbsie sounded like a really good idea, especially because it gave Bramany an opportunity to be involved in the process – he was excited to choose two different materials for his Thumbsies. We also had a thumb sucking reward chart for him to put a sticker on every morning after not sucking his thumb. We were amazed and relieved when he fell asleep relatively quickly on the first night. He loved getting a sticker every morning too.

Once again thank you – and well done for creating such a fantastic product!

“I stopped sucking my thumb!” – Lewis’s Thumbsie reviewLewis mainly sucked his thumb at night to go to sleep, he always woke up in the morning with his thumb in his mouth. We had tried the nasty tasting nail polish, but he told us after a week he just washed it off!   When I found your Thumbsies and suggested trying them Lewis agreed straight away. He chose the camouflage ones, and he couldn’t wait to wear them. When they arrived they fitted perfectly and he wore them straight away. The first night he wore the Thumbsies he didn’t suck his thumb at all and woke up without his thumb in his mouth. Day 2 and 3 were just the same. He used them continuously for three weeks and then we tried a nights sleep without them. We couldn’t believe it but he didn’t suck his thumb and when he woke it wasn’t in his mouth. He has now not sucked his thumb for a whole month. He says his thumb doesn’t taste nice now.

So thank you for a brilliant product. It worked perfectly and if it saved major dentistry work later on then all the better.

Maia's Thumbsie reviewWe bought a couple of Thumbsies for my daughter before Christmas out of sheer desperation.  We’d tried everything:  bribery, blackmail, wearing gloves, plasters, bitter nail varnish, cajoling, you name it. In the end, after a serious chat with our dentist, I typed “help for thumbsuckers” into google and… voilà!  The Thumbsies seemed such a simple idea, and I wasn’t sure they would work with such an addict, but the comfort and friendly-looking designs really seemed to help Maia beat the habit at a psychological as well as practical level.

Within 3 weeks the habit was well and truly gone for ever!

Girl jumping for joy over her Thumbsie reviewShe has been wearing her Thumbsie® thumb guards for ten days now and my husband and I are blown away with how successful they have been. I never thought it could be this easy. She hasn’t sucked her thumb since putting one on, despite being a prolific thumb sucker since she was 5 weeks old – she is now 5! I am so proud of her, especially as it took me until I was 11 to stop sucking mine! 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 (Illiana aged 4)

Hi Jo, I just thought I would update you on the girls progress. I let them both take their Thumbsie thumb guards off last Thursday (after almost 4 weeks of constant wear) with the proviso that they would go straight back on if I spotted any thumb sucking, but a week later I have not seen any evidence of it happening. I am so chuffed and the girls are very proud of themselves. Thank you so much for providing a great product and great service!!!

Thumbsie review: Girl stopped sucking thumb in one monthElla is will be turning 5 in August, and has been a thumb sucker for as long as I can remember when tired or when going to bed to get herself off to sleep! She happily chose the panda design and was excited when the parcel arrived.  That night we put the Thumbsie on with anticipation, and to my amazement the thumb never went near her mouth all night! I cannot believe how easy this has been, and am so happy I was recommended the Thumbsie! I have now recommended it to the mums at school!

Holly Walker Thumbsie reviewI just wanted to write to tell you how wonderful your product is. My daughter, Holly, has sucked her thumb since the day she was born and I didn’t think we’d ever be able to stop her – until we got a thumbsie. I really think the fact that she got to choose her own design, it was pink and girlie, soft and comfortable made all the difference. I bought Holly two thumbsies in March and she was really proud to wear them  Even her friends at school, who don’t suck their thumbs, wanted one! Since mid March Holly has worn a thumbsie every day and one at night. She has slowly stopped sucking her thumb and this week she isn’t wearing it at all. We are all very proud of her but she is the most proud of herself. It has only taken 2.5 months.

Clare Clarke (Holly aged 6 )

Thanks, we are so happy with how easy this was for everyone involved.  Having had my thumb painted, as a little girl, with nasty stuff which never worked, teeth out and then braces I am mightily relieved that my daughter doesn’t have to go through all that. Complete success, thank you!!

Reuben Stops Thumb Sucking: Thumbsie ReviewReuben has now managed to stop sucking his thumb thanks to Thumbsie thumb guards. We have both the cars and sharks designs and can’t recommend them enough, they’re comfortable and wash very well. I even mentioned them to the dentist on a follow-up visit so she could suggest them to other parents! Thanks again.


I am delighted to report that Lucy has not sucked her thumb for 3 whole weeks, and remains very sure that she is not EVER going to suck her thumb again! I am convinced that she would not have accomplished this without the Thumbsie thumb guard so thanks for your great product… No more thumb sucking habit!!!

Steph (Lucy 6 years)

We bought 3 Thumbsie thumb guards for our son, William when he was 4 years old. Will helped to choose the designs and they arrived quickly. He wore them day and night for 4 weeks with no complaints at all. It helped that the designs were so child friendly – all his friends commented how ‘cool’ they were. At the end of 4 weeks he wore them only at night for another couple of weeks and hasn’t needed them since. He doesn’t suck his thumb at all anymore.

William's Mum (William 4 years)

We had tried to tackle this a number of times and we thought we had tried every trick in the book. We were rapidly running out of ideas. A big thank you for such a simple but effective idea that really engages children who want to give up thumb sucking but find it tricky. I would (and have) recommend you to friends without hesitation.


Harry stops the thumb sucking habit: Thumbsie reviewWell, we never thought we would be writing you this email, but we are so pleased to be doing so.  Our son Harry had been a thumb-sucker for as long as we can remember.  We had tried all the usual techniques to try and get him to stop: bribery (worked temporarily but thumb-sucking started again once we had given him whatever incentive we had agreed on); foul-tasting nail polish (he developed a taste for it!) and even other thumb-guards (chewed!).  Our dentist kept telling us not to worry, but he was developing an over-bite on his front teeth, even he seemed worried (and tried to scare him off with a long and convoluted tale about how painful it was to have braces fitted!).

My daughter Sophie has not sucked her thumb for 29 days now and says that she never wants to suck her thumb again. Our dentist told us that her thumb sucking was preventing her teeth from coming through so we had to do something. Sophie loved choosing the designs and they have lasted so well with repeated washing! The reward chart was great and we will continue until we have filled the whole chart with stickers. Loads of friends, her teacher and extended family have commented on how great they are – I wish they had been around when I was young!

Katie (Sophie 6 years)

Katie (Sophie 6 years old)

Our Thumbsie thumb guards are a huge success; she hasn’t taken them off since they arrived. Had the odd moment where she hasn’t wanted to wear them but when reminded that wearing them earns stickers and rewards she has happily put them straight on!! Thanks for a great product!

Girl stops sucking both thumbs: Thumbsie reviewJosie has managed to quit both thumbs within 6 weeks which is brilliant! We are really proud of her and she’s pretty pleased about it too and was very chuffed to receive her certificate. She still chooses to wear her Thumbsies at bedtime, even though she no longer needs them as, “They feel like they’re giving my thumbs a cuddle.”
