About ThumbHuggers

Sales 6,600
On Etsy since 2013

My Story

Thumb Huggers™ , thumb and finger sucker guards were created in 2013 when my daughter, then 7, was struggling to stop sucking her thumb. She would cry in the mornings in frustration about having sucked her thumb unintentionally during the night. So I designed something for her and two weeks later her thumb sucking habit was broken. Then I started making them for friend's children...and now here we are. I have made thousands of thumb, finger and hands guard for children and am happy to be a part in helping them break their habit.

Thumb Huggers™ are made with heavy duty 100% cotton fabric. They are made in a wide variety of fabrics and themes. It's important for your child to want to wear one, so it's important that I keep fun fabric in stock and ready to make your child's Thumb Hugger™.

All fabric has been pre-washed, so guards will not shrink. Thumb and Finger Huggers are machine washable. Close velcro and buckles during wash. Guards can be machine dried on warm or cool.

Listing is for ONE guard. You'll need to purchase two if you need a set or a spare.
