So my one year old sucks her thumb, but she has to be playing/holding the tag on her blanket!! I've never heard of that! Does any one else have a kid that does that?

I noticed when my daughter sucked her thumb she had her blanket at hand. When she was about 3, I started to wean her off both. It did not work as I was pregnant with her brother. I waited until after brother was born and then we tried again. I finally fixed the whole issue by tossing the blanket in the washer, which proceeded to "eat" the blanket. I tossed it in the dryer and then put it away. (She has since found the blanket and we use it for her daughter.) Since she did not have the blanket, she quit sucking her thumb. I would give her a while longer before trying to wean.

My niece does the exact same thing! She has a special "security blanket" with taggies.
