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 (although we can make them for adults too) 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.
We make thumb and also finger guards to help prevent thumb and finger sucking – recommending three for each hand that they suck. That way, you’ll always have enough to maintain good hygiene. We apply a discount at checkout so you don’t need to remember a code. You can purchase finger guards or a fabric thumb guards by visiting our online shop – we offer a range of fun fabrics.
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.
Thumbsies® was designed by a mum with a thumb sucking child (read our story) and has helped many children to stop thumb and finger sucking in a positive way.
We hope that you chose Thumbsies® to help your child to stop their habit.
“We 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.”Libby and Etienne Smith, parents to Ben age 5
“As 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.” Dr Neil Harris, dentist and dad
