Award-Winning Thumbsie®

Award-Winning Thumbsie® is all about reward, encouragement and celebrating success.  We love to hear your success stories and to send out success certificates to children who have stopped sucking.  We are very proud to have won a quite a few awards ourselves, which we couldn’t have done without you.  Thank you and let’s keep celebrating all our successes

So delighted that in October 2019 we won Best Consumer Business at the Best Business Women Awards, such a great achievement to be recognised at these National awards.

Debbie Gilbert, organiser of The Best Business Women Awards said ‘This is the 5th year of these prestigious awards. We were delighted with the number of entries this year, which came in from all over the UK. This is a tough competition judged by business experts.

The judges commented that the Best Consumer Business category had very strong competition, adding, ‘Here is a very unique business which identified a gap in the market and is very successful on so many levels. This business gets the thumbs up.’

Just a month later, whilst still on cloud 9, we won Innovation of the Year at the Dental Industry Awards, and were absolutely over the moon that our thumb sucking solution has been recognised within the dental industry. The Dental Industry Awards is the only celebration in the UK to acknowledge and reward achievements within the dental industry and is run in association with The BDIA (British Dental Industry Association).

2020 has been a challenging year for all of us, and it’s been strange attending awards ceremonies online! However we were delighted to hear that we won Best Product of the Year in the Family Network National Awards, And Silver in Made in the UK and Overall Best Business in the Best Business Women Awards 2020, which makes us incredibly proud in such uncertain times.

In 2021 we were crowned with Silver for Innovation of the Year at the Made For Mums Award. These awards are rigorously tested by parents. Sarah, mum of 4, praised the accompanying story book and reward chart, which helped her youngest daughter. And most importantly, it worked.

“My daughters have cut down the amount they suck their thumbs significantly and my oldest daughter has stopped altogether. I am confident that all of my children will have stopped in the next few weeks.”

2023 has been an amazing year for Thumbsie®, our wins include: Most Innovative Children’s Handmade Dental Product in the Southern Enterprise Awards, Best Children’s Health Solution Manufacturer in the Business Awards UK, Award Of Excellence for Family run, leading provider of Thumb and Finger Guards, Small Business of the Year in the Business Awards UK and Health & Wellbeing Businesswoman of the Year in the Business Awards UK. Thumbsie Ltd also celebrate over 10 years in business.

Then on November 21st at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Jo was awarded Maker & Creator for South East at The Allica Bank Great British Entrepreneur Awards. The ceremony was attended by over 1400 business entrepreneurs and hosted by Lynne Evans (better know from the Go Compare advert). The awards are judged by a panel of some of the UK’s most successful entrepreneurs and business leaders, including the founders of Specsavers, Poundland, and Innocent.
