Who is Huggy Wuggy?

In the online game Poppy Playtime, players are former employees of Playtime Co., a factory that made children’s toys.

Players return to the factory ten years after all employees appear to have disappeared.

The purpose of the game is to solve puzzles and dodge killer toys to advance.

Huggy Wuggy is one of those killer toys.

It was originally a cute teddy bear for kids, but according to Villain’s fandom, “…he was eventually modified with a transferred but corrupted human conscience sometime before the events of the game, turning him into a monster. “

Due to cosplay, advances in video animation, and screenshots from the game itself, Huggy Wuggy became a niche trend for those who played the game.

But like other internet horror trends, this one has taken on a life of its own.

Soon some children were afraid that their teddy bears would grow fangs during the night.

According to Sportskeeda, others reenacted the violence seen in the videos at the playground, leading to concerned parents and a police response.

How did the police react to Huggy Wuggy?

While kids must be 13 years old to sign up for TikTok accounts, YouTube Kids is a channel that offers parental controls for kids as young as five.

Unfortunately, YouTube Kids relies on video names and descriptions to weed them out, meaning a video named Huggy Wuggy would likely pass their first review.

Police in the UK have led the crusade against Huggy Wuggy and similar horror videos, with Dorset Police Cyber ​​Protection Officer Chris Conroy warning:

“It’s really important to pay attention to what your kids are doing and to make sure they’re not just trusting YouTube Kids videos to be safe, because unfortunately, with videos like this, things slip through the cracks.”
