Calderdale Safeguarding Children Board
A Local Safeguarding Children Board’s primary focus must be the safety, protection and promotion of the welfare of all children and young people. The Calderdale Safeguarding Children Board (CSCB) consists of the Safeguarding Board, Business Group and various Sub Groups.
Nationally, many internet safety agencies are warning parents to be extra vigilant over seemingly fun videos widely circulating on YouTube and TikTok that feature a menacing character with razor-sharp teeth with the seemingly friendly name of ‘Huggy Wuggy’.
The character is from a survival horror game called ‘Poppy Playtime’ which has the effect of leading parents and children to believe the videos are aimed at youngsters and contain no inappropriate material. It even gets to slip by many device parental controls.
The reality is that ‘Huggy Wuggy’ a blue bear-like creature chases and threatens other characters in nightmarish scenarios, leaving many children upset and frightened.
The Poppy Playtime game is perfectly legal and widely available on the App stores for Apple and Android mobile devices with a PEGI rating of age 12+
