The character has become very popular on YouTube, TikTok and Roblox. Even with his wildly sharp teeth and creepy body, Huggy Wuggy has become a viral trend on social media as kids these days have found him quite attractive. However, concerns are also being raised about the game’s violent nature and the teddy bear itself, which promises to hug people forever “until you breathe your last together.”
Huggy Wuggy is a blue teddy bear-like character in the recently released horror survival game Poppy Playtime developed by MOB Games.
Lyrics “Fuzzy Wuzzy Was a Bear”
Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear, Fuzzy Wuzzy didn’t have hair, Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn’t really fuzzy, was he?
Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn’t hairy No, gosh, he wasn’t, was he?
Talk to your children.
I know this is something I repeat often, however, open conversations with your child about what they are watching, playing or talking about at school is the most important thing you can do to keep your child safe and happy . Whatever new threat arises, talking to your children can nip threats in the bud and minimize potential harm before it becomes a reality. I bolded and italicized the word “with” because it’s not just about talking to your kids or lecturing them about the dangers of this or that. Nor is it about passively listening as your child talks endlessly about things that don’t seem like a big deal. The key is to interact with each other so you both feel heard, understood, and accepted.
The number one reason children don’t tell their parents about something disturbing is that they fear being punished by having their technology stolen. Often, when a parent discovers that a child is playing an inappropriate game, the parent responds by banning the child from technology for a set amount of time. A better way forward is to have a conversation with them about why it’s bad, block that particular game, and tell them why you’re doing it. Reinforce that you won’t take their device away just because they told you about something bad or scary that happened while using it. Of course, if they deliberately challenge you, then it’s a whole different game and taking away access to the technology is an entirely appropriate punishment.
