Our bespoke finger guards are designed to act as a reminder to children to help them stop finger sucking. If you have measured your child’s or teenagers fingers and you need them to be a little bigger then we are happy to make a bespoke finger guard for you.

If you need a specific colour to match a school uniform or your child has a favourite fabric and they can’t find anything on the website that they like then please do get in touch. Please note that due to license and copyright reasons we can not make guards from Disney or other licensed fabrics, sorry to disappoint.

We have had requests for a three finger guard and a four finger guard, which we were happy to adapt the design for. We have also created a fabric guard that will fit over the last two fingers. Finger guards fit on either hand are secured about the wrist with velcro. We can not create a finger/thumb combination though, if your child sucks both then we suggest a thumb and a finger guard are worn together.

Please get in touch before ordering on so we can let you know if your request is possible. If you order a bespoke guard then we cannot offer a refund or exchange as they will have been made especially for you. Please make sure you take time when measuring. If you think that you will need the finger guard to be wider, then please let us know. You can also supply your own fabric, we will need to advise on this.

Once we have agreed on the size and fabric please choose how many you wish to order. When you place your order please put any special request such as size and fabric in the notes section at checkout stage.

Please allow a little longer for these bespoke finger guards to be made.

What size do I need?
Fits Like a Glove

The finger guard is worn like a glove, it fits over the middle two fingers (either middle and ring or middle and index) and is secured with Velcro around the wrist, so easily adjustable. The guard will fit either hand and will not limit the child’s ability to play or use their hands.


Outside fabric: 100% poplin cotton or 100% cotton.

Inside fabric: Thumbsie® branded cotton fine warp satin.

We suggest washing by hand or in the washing machine at a low temperature.

Approved by professionals

We are delighted that Thumbsie® has been ‘Approved’ through the Oral Health Foundation Accreditation Scheme since May 2020 and that they recognise Thumbsie® as a useful aid in oral health.


These Thumbsies® finger guards are available in extra small, small, medium, large and extra large. Please use our size guide to get the best fit. Please note that we have recently changed our sizing so if you are a returning customer please make sure you re-measure your child’s hand.
