Love these! My son is almost 8 and decided he wanted to try to stop sucking his thumb. His friend had used a Thumbsie and so he asked for one. They are brilliant and in just over a month he no longer sucks his thumb 🙂 Thank you!

Quick delivery and a really lovely product. My son enjoyed choosing from the range of patterns and the sticker chart was an added bonus. Worked really well, in fact we didn’t really get much use out of them as he stopped sucking his thumb quite quickly.

I purchased children's face masks in Nov 20, and again in March '21. Great fun patterns, good quality material which washes well, and toggles to adjust. My children find them very comfortable to wear. Customer service was second to none. Jo rang personally to advise that a mask design my daughter was not in stock, so she patiently went through the choices with my 7 year old and threw in an extra as she didn't have the first choice in stock!! I bought the medium size masks for myself too !! Great product and great service! 👍

Success ☺. My 7 yr old daughter was a thumb sucker from birth. I knew she needed to break the habit. I read about Thumbsie & decided to try it. My daughter picked the fabric which made it more personal for her. She used it every other night, (a compromise that worked for us) and after 6 weeks she no longer sucked her thumb.

I actually bought these for myself, not for thumb sucking, but for skin picking. I bought 2 of the extra large size after measuring up my hands and finding out that they would just fit. They are quite comfortable and I wear both when I am in a particularly 'picky' mood. A fantastic physical barrier to any bad habit!

We were at the end of all our options to help our 5 year old daughter stop sucking her thumb. When I saw the thumbsie product I thought yes, I will try that, I will try anything! We've been using it for about 3 months now and having great success at night and still working on encouraging her to wear it during the day which has been a bit challenging but I have no doubt through talking to her, rewarding and supporting her, we will be able to work together to help her quit. The product is great quality and withstands our daughter sometimes chewing at it when she is particularly missing the thumb. It's comfortable, and the fabric is appealing to kids. I recommend any parent with a thumb sucker try this product.

My daughter is 10 and still sucking her thumbs (yes both thumbs), so much so that her thumbs were gnarled with the skin damaged. We got two thumbsies, which she wore to bed every night, which is when she likes to suck her thumbs the most.They were effective immediately and two months on she has completely lost the urge to suck her thumbs and they are fully repaired. Thumbsies worked when we were just about ready to give up.Thank you

Thumbsie was recommend to us by a nursery teacher for my 3 year old who sucks her thumb all night. We tried numerous methods to break the thumb sucking habit and none worked...until Thumbsie!! It’s been a life saver. My little one is happy to wear it; it’s safe, well made and has stopped the thumb sucking, which slowly I’m sure will break the urge to want to thumb suck. Highly recommend! And yes, just buy 3...we have one at home, one at nursery and a spare.Ps. The service was personal and caring...a nice bonus 🙂

The Thumbsie thumb guards really work. We bought the unicorn multipack for my 7 year old daughter and she had given up thumb sucking within a couple of weeks. The thumb guards are really well made from good quality fabrics. I would highly recommend these to any parents trying to get their children to stop sucking their thumb.

After putting off dealing with my daughters thumb sucking for several years we successfully dealt with it in one night! She loved being given the opportunity to choose the fabric which I think helped. She hasn’t sucked her thumb once since but still enjoys wearing them!

I was skeptical at first and thought they were a bit expensive, but it’s been about 3 months since we bought 2 thumbsies and my 6 year old sons life long habit has now completely gone. Would recommend!

I never thought my daughter would top sucking her thumb. However, after seeing photos of other similar aged children (she is 8) with their Thumbsie she agreed to give it a go! She has now been free of thumb sucking for 7 weeks and is so proud of herself.

My son LOVES sucking his thumb. He’s 3 1/2 and it felt like the habit was so ingrained that we’d never get him to stop. Thumbsies have been a bit of a revelation - I thought he’d just rip off the Velcro and that would be it, but they’re really well made and he loves the patterns so keeping them on hasn’t been an issue. And in just over a week, he’s not wearing a Thumbsie in the car or when he watches TV and there is no thumb sucking at all. We’ll keep it on for the next little while when he’s sleeping, just to see what happens, but it feels like we’ve gone a long way to breaking the habit in a very short time.

From my daughter, aged 10. 'I really like the Thumbsies. We bought 3 and they were really pretty and comfortable. I had tried giving up sucking my thumb before, but the thumbsie helped me to remember, especially when I was tired or upset. After 4 weeks I stopped wearing the Thumbsies and I haven't sucked my thumb since.'

Working fantastically for my daughter and she loves the cool designs! Certainly helps with her wanting to put them on at night. Great customer service and quality. Highly recommend!

Great product!..Nice and good quality. Unfortunately, my five years old is a bit stubborn and she doesn't want to use it.It doesn't matter how many times I place the thumb guard on her hand, she keeps removing it and thrwon it away.But, I will definitely recommend it for younger children.

I tried everything for my 4 year old to stop sucking his thumb. His teeth were already buck and sticking out and o was terrified he was in for a childhood of being teased. I did a lot of research and came across Thumbsie’s. My sons choose his favorite design. After 2 months of wearing them at night the difference is massive. A dentist told me that to the age of 6 that teeth can self correct and that’s exactly what they have done. It is amazing how the teeth have moved all thanks to thumbsies. I would highly recommend these. They are worth it 100%.

My little girl sucked her thumb so much it would get sore and bitter nail varnish was not working. We’ve had the Thumbsie for about 4 weeks now and my little girl loved it from the beginning. She chose the pattern and so was very happy to wear it. It fitted perfectly and was a lovely soft material. So, four weeks on and she has completely stopped sucking her thumb!!! She stopped wearing it last weekend and so far so good! She’s so pleased with herself and her Thumbsie, which is now hanging next to her bed because she loves it so much and doesn’t want to get rid of it. Would definitely recommend this amazing brand!

We had tried everything to get our 3 year old to stop sucking her thumb. We ordered the thumbsie pack with 3 thumbsies, the book and the sticker chart. It was such a big success! The first couple of nights were a bit difficult but then our daughter just seemed to magically stop! She kept wearing the thumbsies for a couple of weeks and nothing since! Amazing!

Bought the unicorn Thumbsie pack after lots of research. My 3yo had sucked both her thumbs from birth and whilst not concerned initially she did eventually stick to one side and had callous like suck bumps raise up front and back of mouth placement on her thumb. I didn’t want to put her off food with alternative measures so thought I’d try Thumbsie’s! I was not convinced but a week in of all day/all night with the only exception when eating and going to the toilet - the Thumbsie had broke her habit! I was worried after half term going back to nursery (change in daily schedule) she might regress which did happen but she was happy to show off her Thumbsie to everyone at nursery and eager to wear again and was needed by night also (overtiredness triggered her too) so although she doesn’t wear everyday she always has it in sight should she want it on or need it on just in case. Totally worth trying and a huge success for our daughter! Many thanks.

The Thumbsie had an immediate impact on my child’s thumb sucking. She wears it with ease to school and around the house, it’s more discreet than I expected it to be.It’s easy to clean and the choice of patterns helps to promote my daughter wearing it.I’m so glad I found Thumbsie and would highly recommend it to anybody.My daughters teeth have improved so much as a result, I could genuinely tell a difference in her mouth & behaviour within 3 days of wearing the Thumbsie.Thank you!

This is my nine year old daughter’s opinion “This is amazing it has made me stop within two weeks! Also it is very comfy and I go to bed with it on too.” Thank you.

Highly recommend Thumbsie - after almost 6 years of thumb sucking, my daughter stopped almost immediately! We had many previous attempts at trying to stop which caused us all stress and upset, but using Thumbsie's was so easy & fun! She chose the fabrics she wanted & loved seeing the stars add up on the chart. Amazing product, 10/10!

Very happy with the Thumbsie's ordered. Dentist told us we needed to get my son's finger sucking under control. He appears to have stopped already. Wish I had ordered years ago!

I was sceptical but thought it would be worth a try. Daughter loved the look of them (we tried 2 with her as she sucked either thumb) and she successfully stopped within a few weeks. Very pleased.

I have used Thumbsie before- this time my daughter choose the design she wanted ( a good selection to choose from) and was so excited to get it through the post. she completed stopped at night time over a year ago using thumbsie. it is a journey we took together but with the help of thumbsie - it had help although it was hard ,but I am proud of her for achieving this.About a week ago she decided to stop altogether and now long sucks her thumb. This has been due to using thumbsie.My daughter tells me it's comfortable. its easy to clean and looks stylish. She loves the fact she could choose the design she wanted.

Simple but super effective! Our youngest son has sucked his fingers since the day he was born. We knew we needed to get him to stop but it was such a great comfort to him. Since trying the finger guard, he's not only stopped sucking his fingers in the day but in his sleep too. Why did we wait!

Fantastic product. I was hopeful but also sceptical and it proved me and my daughter to make wonders. After 4 weeks she doesnt really need it anymore, but we still keep our friend Thumbsie on watch at night time. My daughter really likes it and feels like it is her friend, she is also happy that her teeth will be wonderful as they are now.Initially she even kept it on while homeschooled.

Great quality and customer service. Bought first Thumbsie when my daughter was 3 and a half but even though she liked it and wanted to stop sucking she would just take it off once in bed because she couldn’t resist the thumb. A year later/older and she really got on board with the Thumbsie and it definitely helped her to stop (we’re 95% now and she’s just turned 5), she proudly wanted to wear it to school and wouldn’t go to bed without it because she didn’t want to suck her thumb. We couldn’t have got where we are now without the Thumbsie’s.

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.

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!

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.
