TGuard AeroThumb Reviews

1-9 of 9 reviews
  1. The product did not work for us. Despite tightening the product it caused cuts on the sides of his hands and he would still bite the product to pull it off his thumbs until he eventually cracked the plastic.

  2. It’s been 2 weeks and not received the product yet!

  3. The product we received has a horrible mothball-chemical-old, old smell. Warm soapy wash per instructions does not help. Airing it out does not help. Could not find other reviews with similar issue on this website. Wanted to love it and try it, as a family member recommended it. I have not used this product at all–it smells so bad I wonder what is off-gassing from it. Not putting that near my child. If I can just use a bad smell to keep my child from sucking her thumb, I’ll just DIY it. I only saw one reviewer on Amazon who had the same problem, purchased around the same time as me. Maybe a recent change in plastic formulation/sourcing?? Returning now, sadly.

  4. We contacted the company with our concerns that our daughter was able to slip her thumb out. We were given advise such as “use a popsicle stick” But she still figured out how to remove her thumb. We even hid the scissors from her so she couldn’t cut off the guard when we weren’t looking. However, she still found a way to remove it and “hid” it in the garbage. We again reached out to the company but were told we needed to return the product to get a refund. Well, it was in the garbage so we couldn’t return it. I was disappointed that the “money back guarantee” was not honored. We otherwise liked the product and wanted to give it another chance with a different size but weren’t willing to spend another $50 on something she might throw in the trash once again. Very disappointed.

  5. We started this as directed by the packaging and used it for the full 30 days for our 4.5 year old. She admitted that her first night after not wearing it (ran out of bands) she sucked her thumb. We ordered 30 more wrist bands at $10.90 plus expedited shipping and gave it another month. The second night it was off, she told us that she sucked her thumb. At least she was honest about it. Sadly, this was a complete waste of money. At least she went for 60 days without sucking her thumb. Poor kid. The reward chart that went along with it was all of nothing.

  6. Easy to use, didn’t cause any pain, but had to buy two of them because he just switched to the other thumb. And when the 30 days was over, he simply returned to sucking. We would thus have to keep paying for more bands to continue the treatment. I would recommend another option.

  7. This is expensive. We purchased 2 of these hoping to help. Our son is very smart and figured the weak points on these and worked at it. This is not worth trying because they only give you 30 days. We gave this 7 months and kept buying the bands as well. Long story short, we are out $160 and our son is still sucking his thumb. What a big disappointment!

  8. This helped my son not suck his thumb while wearing it. He wasn’t even chewing his thumb anymore!! However it did not kick the habit to the curb. After the 30 day warranty period was up, both thumb guards started cracking all over and started holding so much dirt that I can no longer clean them properly. These are expensive to buy if you have to buy them every 45 days! Extra arm bands are far more expense than other options on amazon only the other bracelets won’t fit for the tguards. It impossible to get customer service on the phone. Make a product you can stand behind. Not one that becomes defective after 30 days.

  9. My 6 year old broke it in less than 4 hpurs of wearing it.
