Shark Thumbsie® Thumb Guard

Based on 390 reviews

Shark teeth grow in conveyor belt-like series and rows, with the biggest teeth facing outwards. Over time, the smaller teeth in the back grow and move up, replacing the ones in front. Once our adult teeth come through we don’t get them replaced so we need to look after them. Let these Shark Thumbsie® Thumb Guards help your child to stop thumb sucking.

We are running short of the green shark fabric (only large left). The alternative fabric will be used if you order any other size.

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: Multi-Coloured sharks on a navy background, 100% cotton fabric. Or sharks on a teal background.

Inside: Thumbsie® branded cotton fine warp satin fabric.

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