Dental industry innovation winner 2019

Crabs Thumbsie® Thumb Guard


Did you know that crabs walk sideways so they are less likely to trip over their own feet?  With Thumbsie® your progress will only be forwards.  Wrap a crustacean shell around your digits and leaving thumb and finger sucking behind!

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: Navy Sea Horizon a off white background, poly cotton fabric.

Inside fabric: Thumbsie® branded cotton fine warp satin.

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