Thanks to all the parents who submitted a Thumbsie® review on Google. This is a real indication that wearing a Thumbsie® really works, allowing families to feel confident in their attempts to stop the finger or thumb sucking habit!
I cannot recommend this wonderful product enough!In all previous conversations with my daughter about stopping thumb sucking there had been tears and desperation and worries that she would never sleep again. I feared that at 9 years old we had left it too late.We are now in week three of thumbsies and we have had no tears and just a couple of treat nights where we have allowed her not to wear it due to little worries or a yucky day at school.I can already see the difference in her front teeth and we have more beaming smiles!This product has brought a full smile to my daughter's life and I thank you with all my heart.

My 4 year old has managed to stop sucking her thumb within a few weeks of using the thumbsie! She’s sucked her thumb almost since birth and I thought it was going to be such a battle to get her to stop, but she took to it brilliantly. Can’t recommend the thumbsie enough! It’s great!

I tried my 2.5 year-old son with the thumbsie with no great expectations of success as he’s still young and has been heavily dependent on sucking his thumb as a source of comfort ever since he first learned to sleep through the night as a baby. I wasn’t going to push it, but we talked about it beforehand and got him behind the idea, and used a reward chart, and only a month later he no longer sucks his thumb! The design is great and unobtrusive and he was proud of wearing it and showing it off to people. I am amazed and so delighted, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone else. Thank you!

Can’t recommend highly enough! My son is 7 and we thought he’d never break the thumb sucking habit. We ordered 3 Thumbsies which he wore day and night for about four weeks and it worked... he is no longer a thumb sucker.

We went through years and years of trying to stop our daughter sucking her thumbs and fingers. We tried everything from Dr Thumb, a fitted device in the roof of her mouth, plastering fingers, bribing - everything! the sucking was starting to change the shape of my daughters jaw and stopping her adult teeth coming through. It was a nightmare. The thumb and fingers guards helped us to finally crack it. Thank you

Such a fantastic product. My 7 year olds big teeth were coming down and when she went to the dentist she could tell straight away that she sucks her thumb.The dentist said that she would need to stop sucking her thumb ASAP as teeth were already growing outwards. Since wearing the thumbsies there is a huge improvement and teeth have now grown down straight. She loves wearing her thumbsie every night.

Great selection of prints available, and after trying nail varnishes etc her thumsies seem to be working!

This really works! Amazing, Pretty too.
17:05 19 Nov 20
Great quality and a perfect fit for my daughter.
16:36 19 Nov 20
Thumbsie is really cute and my daughter loves it! I bought it as she's 6 and was concerned that her thumb sucking would affect her big teeth coming in, and it's made such a difference. Would highly recommend!
11:16 18 Nov 20
Very happy with the design and pattern of the Thumbsie. Has really made a huge difference to my 6 year old, already not thumb sucking in day, we just have nights to work on next! A much better option than locking alternatives.

My daughter is 9 and has always sucked her thumb and twirled her hair, as she got older this had reduced to only when tired or at bedtime but still enough to be causing her teeth to grow forward. We had discussed stopping with her and talked about things we could try, we tried plasters etc but she would just struggle to settle and take them off. We saw the thumbsie advertised and discussed it with her as an option. She really wanted to stop as was aware of the damage she was doing to her teeth. She picked her own fabric and was excited for her thumbsie to arrive. Since it did, she hasn't looked back. Its been fantastic for us and would highly reccomend.

My daughter has sucked her thumb since birth and we knew it was time she needed to stop so it didn’t affect her ‘big’ teeth coming through. I ordered a Thumbsie back in early September and already my daughter has stopped sucking at all to go to sleep and only has the odd slip up during down time. This is a great product and really works. They have loads of lovely designs and they are hard wearing. I would highly recommend.

I sucked my thumb as a child and found it a v difficult habit to break, so was gutted when our youngest daughter started to suck her thumb, aged 2. At 6, she was keen to stop but was finding it very difficult especially at night. We chose her thumbsies together and she was very excited for them to arrive. I felt sceptical but she loved wearing them, didn’t seem to pull them off in her sleep and within a week she had all but stopped sucking her thumb - I was amazed. Thanks, Jo!
10:53 07 Nov 20
It best what we could do for our doughter i just regret that we don't find it early.It's so easy and she was happy to use one she choose. Thank you
21:15 26 Oct 20
Great product! Our son was so excited to receive his Thumbsies in the post after having chosen the fabrics himself and took to wearing them day and night with ease. He has now stopped sucking his thumb during the day! He still wears his Thumbsie overnight but I expect it just takes a little longer to break the habbit at nighttime and have every confidence he will get there in the end. The addition of the reward chart and stickers certainly helped with compliance and motivation, and the book was perfect seeing as he just started school himself. Fab product and great service. Well done Thumbsie!
14:54 21 Oct 20
This product is fantastic. I was not dubious as the concept seemed so simple, just something we hadn’t thought of, for so many years. However I was simply astounded at how quickly it worked!!!
19:24 20 Oct 20
A great idea which really works. We tried nail varnishes and rewards, but nothing worked, until Thumbsies. Our daughter really loved the selection of fabric that was available - something for everyone!
16:58 19 Oct 20
Great product. My 8yr old has been using this for a month now. Night time only and the thumb sucking has completely stopped. We’re still wearing it up to now, as this habit is hard to kick.

Ordered face masks from Jo at Thumbsie for our teenage twin girls in August 2020, prior to the return to school. Our senior school opted for face masks to be worn in communal areas right from the start of term. Thumbsie ticked all boxes: 1) Made in UK, 2)Reusable/Washable 3) Filter Pocket 4) Adjustable Toggle 5) Lovely Quality and Designs of Fabrics. 6) Quick Delivery. Well Done and Thanks Jo.

These things really work! I was curious (if not dubious) but hopeful after reading the reviews and I can now share that I am SO proud of how well my daughter has done. She wore the Thumbsies for 4 weeks permanently, and then just in the night, only recently taking it off. I could see how hard it was for her at the beginning but after lots of encouragement (and removal of ALL labels in the house!!), she was eventually regularly saying "Look mummy I'm not sucking my thumb!", and now we never notice her doing it or even being tempted. Initially she wanted to suck her finger but I think it felt so odd to her that she didn't do that for long either. Very proud and absolutely worth the money we spent. Off to the Toy Shop this week so she can choose her special reward for stopping sucking her thumb. Thanks Thumbsies!
18:50 29 Sep 20
Brilliant idea that really works. We were able to give our daughter a really good choice of fabric and she loves wearing her thumbsie which prevents thumb sucking perfectly 😊
17:05 29 Sep 20
Simple but effective! The lovely materials made my daughter (who is 7 and still sucks her fingers) want to wear it. We still have a little finger sucking at bedtime but the daytime sucking stopped within 2 weeks of the Thumbsie being delivered. Top marks Thumbsie!
15:43 29 Sep 20
We really love the face mask designs, both the original ones and the school ones. They are very comfortable to wear, especially since they are so easily adjustable, and wash easily. The extra pocket for a third layer is a good idea too.
13:41 29 Sep 20
Great design. Brilliant tool in helping your little one to stop sucking thumbs. Definitely recommend.
17:14 02 Sep 20
Someone get the creator of Thumbsie a trophy! Oh right, they have!I can't believe how easy it has been to get our daughter off thumb sucking! She was so pleased to put it on and show her friends at nursery and to my amazement has kept it on all day long. She went to sleep and for the first time ever did it without sucking her thumb. We bought the pack with the book and reward chart but I think she'd do it just as easily without it. We're only 24 hours in but I'm 100% confident we've cracked it. Our friends recommended it to us as they're daughter did it in just 3 days!Thanks thumbsie!!

I purchased a few Thumbsies for my daughter age 4 a few months ago. She loved picking the patterns, loved the book and the reward chart was motivating. We had great success at the start and she managed to stop sucking her thumb during the day for 2 weeks straight with the odd night included, which was an amazing achievement for her! However then she started slipping her thumb out while wearing it and sucking when we were not looking. This is happening every chance she gets now unfortunately and the the habit is back with a vengeance now. The product is fantastic though. It's really is up to the child. Fantastic service too. I would definitely recommend giving it a try!
16:52 10 Aug 20
Brilliant. My son 'lost' the first one so bought 3 more. He's 6 and loves thumb sucking. We tried stop n grow for years. This is the only thing that's reduced it! Would highly recommend.
19:47 06 Aug 20
My friend bought new thumbsie for my two years old daughter which she advised that her daughter had it and it was worked, I try put on my daughter's thumbs for bedtime around for two months and now day and night is reducing suck her thumbs now. So getting there! And thanks for an amazing items! I will recommend to family and friends too.
17:18 04 Aug 20
My daughter has always sucked her finger even as a baby. I have tried nail varnish and bribes but nothing worked. Within 2 weeks of wearing her Thumbsie she has stopped sucking her finger completely! She sometimes still chooses to wear her Thumbsie as she likes it but mostly she is fine without it! A little bit of success during lockdown! A smile on both of our faces! Thank you.
14:34 03 Aug 20
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!
08:19 03 Aug 20
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👌
12:23 10 Jun 20
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.
17:18 08 Jun 20
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!
12:06 08 Jun 20
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 🙂
12:15 04 Jun 20
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.
17:49 11 May 20
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💖💖
01:40 10 May 20
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.
01:34 24 Apr 20
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!
16:15 23 Apr 20
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!!!!
12:51 18 Apr 20
09:08 18 Apr 20
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.
