Parents have been warned of the terrifying ‘Huggy Wuggy Bear’ as young children copy the videos

A school has issued an urgent warning to parents as young pupils watched videos featuring a character called Huggy Wuggy from a horror game and then imitated the clips.

A school in Belfast said children had accessed the shocking videos, which feature a razor-toothed monster from the video game Poppy Playtime, via YouTube and TikTok.

A clip shows the creepy Huggy Wuggy singing about ‘hug and kill’ and asking viewers to ‘take their last breath’ – and it worries parents whose children copied the video while on the playground, Belfast Live reports.

Cregagh Primary School in east Belfast has warned parents of the trend and asked them to be vigilant about what children are watching.

In a post on the school’s Facebook page, Principal David Hegarty said: “It has come to my attention that a character named ‘Huggy Wuggy’ is being seen by our children online, some as young as Primary One .

“The character can be easily viewed on YouTube channels and is a teddy bear with razor sharp teeth who sings ominous songs about hugs and murder.

“In one of the videos, the bear asks the viewer to breathe his last.

“He’s a very deceptive character, because hugs should be seen as kind and loving, and because of his name, he’s able to infiltrate firewalls and filters.

“I just wanted to let parents know so you are aware and can be vigilant about what your kids might be watching.”

The same post was also shared on the Abbot’s Cross Primary School Facebook page in Newtown Abbey.

A mother told Sky News her three-year-old tried to jump out the window thinking he was going to die and come back to life “like Huggy Wuggy does” after watching the scary videos.
