PARENTS are urged to stop their kids from watching horrific TikTok videos of a killer teddy bear named ‘Huggy Wuggy’.
Police issued an urgent alert after children were seen mimicking the actions of the razor-toothed bear in the schoolyard.
The creepy teddy sings about “hugging and killing” and urges viewers to “take their last breath”.
It has been compared to the Killer Crown craze that swept the country a few years ago.
Children are now said to be traumatized by it Tick tock Videos that started out as a puzzle game with the villain Huggy chasing players in a toy factory.
Dorset Police Cyber Protection Officer Chris Conroy said: “There are videos that people have made, songs that people have made and it’s popping up all over YouTube and Tik Tok with these quite graphic images of this bear-like character used with razor sharp teeth.
“It’s based on jump scares and things that kids are certainly not supposed to be exposed to.”
Police have warned that some children are reenacting the game at school, whispering sinister texts to each other as the game grows in popularity.
One chilling line says, “I could hug you here forever until you breathe your last together.”
It continues: “My teeth sharp and ready, in my grip, yes they are deadly”.
The blue bear also invites people to “lean in for a bone-crushing hug.”
Mum-of-two Rhia Fearn said she initially thought the bear was harmless when her five-year-old son asked her about the name.
But as she examined him, she realized that the innocent teddy was actually a lot scarier.
The 35-year-old, from Approximately, Derbys, said: “He told me Huggy Wuggy kills everyone he meets and he’s not nice, he’s a bad guy and he’s very mean.
“I believe it’s accessible on Youtube and it’s really scary that this Huggy Wuggy crept under my radar as a parent and infiltrated my child’s mind without my even realizing it. Now I feel really silly for not paying more attention to what my son was saying to me and realizing the violence this character portrays.
“Kids want to play Huggy Wuggy’s games, they talk about it in the playground. It’s really scary as many parents won’t realize the level of violence our children are subjected to.
“We need help and awareness because it’s scary how it stays under the radar. I think I’m pretty aware of what I exposed Harrison to, but when it happens in playground conversations, I think parents and schools need to be more vigilant. “
Another parent added: “All the kids are talking about it and showing each other these videos, it’s become a craze that’s growing in popularity.
“It’s extremely concerning because this character is really dark and quite frankly terrifying. It almost becomes the online version of this killer clown madness.”
Justine Brown, headmistress at Deal Parochial Church of England primary school in Walmer, Kent, has also warned parents to remain vigilant.
She said: “We see children re-enacting a game in the playground by hugging and whispering naughty things.
“It’s a very deceptive character, as hugs should be seen as something kind and loving, and because of its cute name, it can infiltrate firewalls and filters.
“Please pay attention to what your children see.”
The puzzle game can be found on both YouTube and Roblox, but is not age-rated, meaning the content is unfiltered.
A Dorset Police spokesman said: “The blue bear-like figure has long arms and rows of razor-sharp teeth.
“Set in an abandoned toy factory, Huggy is an in-game villain who haunts players in unreachable places.
“Videos of the game can be viewed on YouTube, with other clips dedicated to Huggy in song.
“One song has the lyrics, ‘I could hug you here forever until you take your last breath together.”
