Young Manca girls before ThumbustersGetting a child to stop thumb sucking can prove next to impossible.  Many parents try quick fixes like putting tabasco sauce or bandaids on their child’s thumb.  Sometimes it works, but more often than not the child goes right back to sucking their thumb anytime it’s free.

Mory Manca’s three daughters were serious thumbsuckers.  He tried everything to get them to stop, but nothing worked, and that’s when he came up with the idea for the Thumbuster.

Green ThumbusterSo what is a Thumbuster? It’s a glove-like device made of Lycra and velcro that covers the thumb and is attached using a band around the wrist.  And, most importantly, it works!  Just look at the testimonials on their website!

The Thumbuster is such an effective product that King 5’s Evening Magazine did a piece on it in 2009, that was so popular they ran it again in August 2010.
