Get your child to choose from our fun selection of fabrics. We recommend buying three for each hand they suck.

If you need the finger guard to be a little bigger then please order a bespoke finger guard.

All finger guards are secured by Velcro® around the wrist which helps make the child feel more independent but also means that no matter the size of their wrist, they should feel comfortable as they can be adjusted.

When measuring for a Thumbsie® finger guard, please bear in mind that the product will fit either hand. We recommend your child wears the guard all the time, both day and night. For this reason, we suggest that you have three for each hand that they suck. We highly recommend our Stop Finger Sucking Bundles which will save money.
