Absolutely revolutionary! Nothing had worked with my 4 year old, but after a few weeks of wearing his Thumbsie he has completely stopped sucking his thumb. The football fabric helped!

I purchased a Thumbsie for my 5 year old son a few months ago after trying almost everything to get him to stop sucking his tumb. It went really well at first until he realised he could take it on and off when I wasn’t looking, Although with a little perseverance he has eventually kicked the habit. Lovely patterns and very well made product. Would definitely recommend👌

A lovely product that really helps as long as the child doesn't decide to take it off when you are not looking and put it back on again when you are around. Perhaps a product improvement would be strong superglue so the child couldn't take it off at all for at least a month.

My daughter chose her own fabric which made her more motivated to wear it. We have just ordered more and their customer service was fantastic, replying to messages straight away and going the extra mile! Thank you Thumbsie! Now to crack night-times too!

The children's face masks are fantastic, thank you so much for making wearing a mask exciting and fun for my two girls. I have one girly girl and one who loves greys and blues. Both are over the moon and found there was plenty to choose from. Great service and delivered quickly. Thanks Thumbsie 🙂

I couldn’t be happier with both the product and the result. We bought 2 Thumbsie’s a month ago after seeing online reviews. My daughter mentioned she wanted to stop but at 4 years old was really struggling with how to as it was such an ingrained habit. We let her choose the design which she got very excited about and they arrived soon after the order was placed. She wore them religiously and showed them off to everyone. We saw an immediate affect from the day they arrived she stopped sucking her thumb in the day time, we were amazed. A week later she stopped at night time. It’s now been a month and she doesn’t have to wear the Thumbsie day or night she has completely stopped. Amazed and very proud of her!

When my daughter's dentist suggested a thumbsie, I was a bit skeptical, knowing willpower was key. However, my daughter has been trying to give up thumb-sucking since she turned three years old and has just turned nine! There have been times when she's shown more restraint during the day, but often sucked her thumb when she was tired and always at night to get to sleep. Since lock-down and being at home rather than school, she seemed to suck her thumb more. So we thought we’d try it a Thumbsie. The choice of designs is great and the product itself is very well made and washes well. In a short few weeks, my daughter has broken the habit of a lifetime and can finally get to sleep without sucking her thumb.It is clear that Jo Bates and the Thumbsie team really care, with quick delivery, a well-made product and personal after-sales service. I would definitely recommend Thumbsie to other skeptical parents.

This product is amazing!! We used it for our 7 year old daughter, she has sucked her two middle fingers her whole life, she did it almost all day and her teeth/fingers were beginning to become deformed. After a month of using this she snapped out of the habbit and now just 2 months later its a thing of the past! Thanks so much💖💖

The Thumbsie has been amazing for our 9 year old. Wish we’d done it sooner but it’s finally the thing that has stopped the finger sucking. Thanks so much.
14:21 01 May 20
Thank you so much for creating such a brilliant product. Our daughter who is 20 months wore the guard for two weeks and we thought we would check how she was doing one day and we have never needed to use it again. Incredible, we were so worried as her teeth were moving but Thumbsie worked perfectly and it seems she has completely forgotten that she used her thumb for comfort before. Thank you from two very grateful parents.

Sadie’s thumb sucking habit was a real challenge but within a few weeks of wearing Thumbsie she just completely stopped. She would never suck her thumb now but sometimes still wears her Thumbsie to bed for comfort. Super proud of her as I really thought this was something she would do forever. Thank you Thumbsie!

We bought the thumbsie for my daugther who turned three. She has been sucking her fingers since she was a baby. For 2 weeks of use during the day esp at times when she was relaxing or upset the finger gaurd was brilliant. Although we haven't tackled her finger sucking at night yet, during the day she doesn't feel the need....would highly reccomend as she choose her patterns and loved the digger and dump truck designs!!!!

We used the thumbsies for my son 3 years ago and then my daughter recently. Both times they have worked within 2 weeks. They loved choosing the fabric and were excited to wear them. They wash well too. Would highly recommend.
18:18 17 Apr 20
She has finally stopped sucking her finger! These really do work. After trying different methods over a long period of time this is the one thing that has finally stopped her. I wish I had come across these 2 years ago!
12:48 17 Apr 20
Incredible! We involved our 5-year-old right from the start, explaining why he shouldn't suck his thumb and letting him choose his own Thumbsie patterns. He was so excited to wear them and he loved the story book! In less than two weeks, he had found other ways to soothe himself to sleep.
12:12 17 Apr 20
My 4 year old is at school and it was time to break the thumb sucking habit. I showed him pictures of the thumbsies and he picked 2: the wagon one (his favourite thing in the world) and the dinosaur one. He was so excited to try them. Success was instant!
18:33 10 Apr 20
Bought this product for my daughter and it worked like magic. My daughter outgrew her thumbsucking habit in less than 4 weeks. Incredible!!!
07:57 10 Apr 20
These Thumbsies are a great product! My 5 year old daughter sucked both thumbs interchangeably, since being a six-week old baby. Our dentist advised us that it was time for her to stop this, so we tried the Thumbsies and she stopped her habit in about 3 weeks. The Thumbsies are easy to put on and are comfortable (so I'm told!) to wear. The designs are very sweet, and having the little book to accompany them was an added bit of fun. I think my daughter was quite proud to be wearing them at school, and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone else who is looking for help with breaking the thumb-sucking habit.

We empowered our 6 year old to choose the fabric as we felt that the more control he would have over stopping to suck his thumb the better. He chose the army / soldier fabric and he was very excited when the parcel arrive. Since wearing his Thumbsie for a couple of consecutive nights he now has stopped completely - he no longer wears it and it’s been since early March ! We are so proud of our son and also very grateful for the Thumbsie which kick started the process!
19:14 08 Apr 20
A great product. It does what it says on the tin! I got two thumb guards and my daughter chose the fabric. She loved it! And stopped sucking her thumb in four weeks. I only gave 4 stars because it's a bit pricey, but its worth it!
18:19 08 Apr 20
My 7 year old daughter asked me to purchase a thumbsie and loved it as soon as she got it. She has worn it every night for the past few weeks and it's really worked. She no longer sucks her thumb or uses her comfort blanket. I would fully recommend.
18:01 08 Apr 20
We have had these for my daughter when she was 5 and she just chew through them unfortunately. As they are not cheap, we left it be. Now that she is 8, she is more sensible and leaves them on and it really is making a difference. She still chews on them here and there, but is much better at controlling it and remembering to put them on. Also, from first night she was able to sleep without sucking. A bit unbelievable if I’m honest, but so pleased. I supposed the child needs to want to stop sucking for the thumbsies to help. Highly recommended.

Great product. It worked for my 5 year old daughter. She still wear it everytime and she like it.
19:56 10 Mar 20
This product seems to have done the trick for us. Our daughter had stopped also in the past but always fell back into the temptation and bad habit. We bought the Thumbsie and book a month ago and she has now stopped completely for 26 days and nights in a raw. Few days ago she told us that she never thinks about it anymore, so we are confident! this is the end! Our daughter already wanted to stop and this was a nice way to help her and support her.

So pleased we bought a 'finger' thumbsie for our grandson. He was completely hooked on sucking his fingers, to the extent that he was displacing his teeth. His parents, dentist and us had tried everything to get him to stop.I was really sceptical about it working because his habit was so strong but within 2 weeks he has completely stopped. Amazing. There are so many patterns to choose from for boys and girls, our grandson was very happy to wear it, even at school.We will be buying one soon for our granddaughter!
17:43 10 Mar 20
My 5 year old daughter was in the habit of sucking her thumb vigorously all throughout the day and within 2 weeks she no longer sucked at her thumb. Even though she only wears her Thumbsie at night she has stopped completely. I will continue to purchase another Thumbsie once she grows out of it as even though consciously she doesn’t do it, subconsciously at night she could.Thank you this has made such a massive difference in so many ways and just at the right time!
16:38 10 Mar 20
The finger guard fitted perfectly and my three year old has worn it every night for a month without complaint. So far this has completely stopped her finger sucking habit and I'm really hopeful this will be the end of the habit! Being able to choose the fabric really helped her feel committed to wearing it! Many thanks!

The service was excellent and they are the best thing we have come across to stop our daughter sucking her thumb. Basically she went from sucking her thumb constantly morning and night even with foul tasting stuff on her nail and band aids to not sucking her thumb at all. I would highly recommend these for anyone having this issue.
22:21 26 Feb 20
My 4yr old daughter was very happy to chose her thumbsie and wear it. It lost its shine a little when she realised she now couldn't suck her thumb but she has worn one every day and night( lots of moaning at night)for over 3 weeks and hasn't taken them off once. A brilliant sucess. Thanks to a friend for suggesting.
09:24 26 Feb 20
I bought some finger guards for my 3 year old son and they have really worked to remind him not to suck on his fingers. It's been about a month and I can already see a big difference! Thanks Thumbsie!
19:32 25 Feb 20
I bought one of these for my 8 year old. Works really well and washes really well too! Lots of patterns to choose from and very quick delivery to France.
15:02 24 Feb 20
Gran descubrimiento, nos ha ayudado mucho. Tras probar muchos métodos ya casi le hemos quitado la manía. Actualizo reseña: solo sirve para cuando son muy pequeñitos. Al final de mayores se lo quitan y el instinto les vuelve a repetir.
12:02 12 Feb 20
My daughter is 13, she needs orthodontic work and desperately needs to stop sucking her thumb, I have tried everything, this actually works! I was amazed!
11:51 12 Feb 20
Little one wasn't sucking thumb exactly, but having it in his mouth all the time led to the skin being cracked and sore. 16 months old. No problem wearing it and small size has plenty to grow. Worked well, skin is getting much better.

Purchased Thumbsie’s for our 8 year old son after many years of trying to get him to stop sucking his thumb. It was really having an affect on his teeth and the nail of his thumb. He has been wearing them for a month now. It has dramatically reduced the amount of times his sucks his thumb during the day and sleeping. He isn’t quite at the point of stopping wearing the Thumbsie but I’m hoping it will be in the next month. He got to pick his own design (camouflage) and his school teacher has been very supportive about him wearing it in school. I would recommend buying three so you always have a clean one ready each day.
17:05 11 Feb 20
Brilliant invention. So good we came back and bought more! Has really helped our son kick the habit.
14:46 11 Feb 20
Thumbs up for Thumbsie! Great choice of prints, nice snug fit and excellent customer service. My daughter doesn't mind wearing it and has no urge to suck her thumb at all now even when she is not wearing it! Must be because of the unicorns 🦄😍
00:55 30 Jan 20
Excellent customer service! Delivered very quickly but I had ordered a size too big. After contacting thumbsie it was sorted out swiftly and now my 3year old wears them all night on both hands with no thumb sucking😃She loves the designs and they are comfortable too.
00:43 27 Jan 20
Thumbsie has been great. Fast delivery and super cute patterns to choose from. My 4 year old daughter loves wearing hers and is proud she doesn't suck her thumb while she is wearing it.
13:47 23 Jan 20
Well made, very quick service, arrived quickly.

This product did work for my 3/4 year old. Daytime habit was gone in weeks, nighttime took a few months as she did it unconsciously in her sleep. We achieved this purchasing only 2 of the guards even though the company recommended 6 (which I thought sounded excessive as they are approximately £10 each). As she quickly broke the habit during the day and greatly preferred her right thumb, we got away with only the 2 which she wore at night and I washed during the daytime. This was £20 well spent, and I particularly liked this method because my daughter was perfectly capable of removing the guards, but chose (with encouragement) to wear them and felt pride when she had freed herself of the habit. Overall, great product although I would tend to purchase just a few and order more if you decide it is necessary.
11:40 22 Jan 20
Absolutely genius!! We ordered a Thumbsie for our 6 year old who decided now was the time to stop. We let him choose the fabric (footballs!) and he had no hesitation in wearing it as soon as it arrived. He happily wore it to school too! After a few weeks we were down to just wearing it at night. Such peace of mind during the night that the thumb wont subconsciously find its way back in! My advice buy more than one as if your children are like mine then it will get dirty and need washing!! I must say it washes perfectly too!
10:49 22 Jan 20
Fantastic product! After years of thumb sucking and literally trying everything to try and get my daughter to stop, she has now stopped. The thumbsie worked within days and I can’t recommend it enough. Thank you thumbsie!
10:03 22 Jan 20
What an amazing product! My little boy has sucked his 2 middle fingers on his right hand since he was 8 weeks old. We have tried everything over the last year or so to get him to stop.Enter thumbsie for the Christmas holiday in just a few days he had stopped both day and night!!!! On his return to school he absolutely beamed with pride telling his teacher that he had stopped 😍Thank you!
19:55 14 Jan 20
Cannot recommend this product highly enough, a friend told me about Thumbsie's back in October and within 6 weeks both my 6 year old and 8 year old have managed to crack the habit, quite unbelievable especially with the 6 year old as she sucked thumb day AND night. Thumbsie you worked a treat, thank you!
