Bespoke thumb guards


Dental industry innovation winner 2019

Bespoke thumb guards


Thumb and finger guards can be made bigger than extra large for older children.

If your child doesn’t like any of the fabrics on offer and has their heart set on something (such as the cats in the photo) then we will try and buy the fabric of their choice for them, after all if your child has chosen it then you are well on your way to getting them to stop (so sorry but this is unlikely whilst restrictions due to Corvid-19 are in place).

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.

When you place your order please put any special request such as size and fabric in the notes section at checkout stage. If you think that you will need the thumb guard to be wider then please let us know.

Once we have agreed on the size and fabric please choose how many you wish to order. You can also supply your own fabric, we will need to advise on this..

Please allow a little longer for these to be made.

What size do I need?
Fits Like a Glove

The thumb guard is worn like a glove, it fits over the thumb and is secured with Velcro around the wrist, so is easily adjustable. The guard will fit either thumb 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.
