Say it quietly, but it seems like spring might finally be on the way. And to celebrate, Thumbsie® are running a special offer throughout the whole month of March.
For every order of two or more Thumbsie® thumb or finger guards, you will receive a pack of wildflower seed bombs which you can plant, tend and watch grow with your child and help bring our bees back!
Thumbsie® is a positive, fun way to stop thumb sucking. Rather than sucking their thumbs, we hope that in time your child will use their hands for planting seeds instead.
You never know, it could even be a fun challenge for your child: can they give up thumb sucking before the flowers grow? Of course, you won’t be surprised to know we offer a number of flower and Bee themed Thumbsies®, too!
Why are wildflowers important?
Wildflowers serve so many purposes. Aside from being beautiful to look at, they play an important role in feeding pollinators and insects with the leaves, pollen and nectar they produce. And they offer shelter and places to breed for many bees and other insects.
Wildflowers are not only a fantastic source of food in the spring and summer months, they are also very useful for birds and small mammals in the winter too.
Seed bombs are the easiest, most reliable – and some would say, most enjoyable – way of planting wildflower seeds. It really is fun for all the family. Each of the seed bombs we provide will contain about twenty wildflower seeds, all of which come home grown from a wildflower meadow. In keeping with Thumbsies® commitment to the environment, there are no pesticides used and the seed bombs are 100 per cent biodegradable.
And why are Thumbsie® making this offer?
Simply put, at Thumbsie® we are committed to playing our part in protecting the environment. We also appreciate how wonderful seed planting can be for children’s wellbeing – physical and mental. It encourages them to learn to love plants and the garden, and to develop a passion for gardening. What could be more lovely?
It is really important for all of us at Thumbsie® to thank our customers for the support you have given us. The last few years have been difficult for businesses, families and communities. We have been amazed at the support we have received from all of you – and we want to give back. What better way than to share one of our passions with you: our love of flowers?
What do I need to do?
To receive your pack of seed bombs all you need to do is purchase two or more Thumbsie® guards or one of our bundles.
To win our #lovemythumbsie vouchers, we’d also love you to take photos of your child wearing their Thumbsie® and planting the seed bombs. We would love you to take photos of the seeds as they grow into flowers and share them on social media using the hashtags #lovemythumbsie #helpbringthebeesback
Thumbsie® are serious about helping children stop thumb sucking. We are serious, too, about our love for nature. We have recently launched our new eco-packaging which is made of 100 per cent recycled materials with biodegradable additive.
And our much-loved Thumbs Up For Ted’s Thumbsie book is printed using environmentally sensitive methods by one of just a handful of certified carbon balanced printers in the UK.
So, all that’s left for us to say is “get planting!”
