Poppy Playtime: Viral Huggy Wuggy TikTok Explained + Police Warning

Huggy Wuggy is a trend that many people are unfamiliar with, yet social media comments and clips with this name are readily available. Authorities have issued a message warning parents to keep their kids away from Huggy Wuggy, Poppy Playtime, and this bizarre TikTok craze.

Who is Huggy Wuggy, you might ask?

  • Before going viral on TikTok and YouTube, he was the main villain in the horror game Poppy Playtime. With his razor-like fangs and morbid sense of humor, Huggy Wuggy is one terrifying bear.
  • An abandoned toy factory is the setting for this survival-horror game, in which Huggy Wuggy sings unsettling tunes to lure gamers in.

There have been complaints from teachers at a school in the United Kingdom who say they are concerned about students. It has since emerged that some of the pupils at a Primary School are re-enacting the bad behavior depicted in the clips they’ve viewed. To give more context, parts of the lyrics to a Huggy Wuggy song read:

“I could hug you here forever, till you breathe your last breath together.”
“My teeth sharp and ready. In my grasp, yeah, they’re deadly.”

Police Warning

 “There are videos people have made, songs people have made, and it’s popping up all over YouTube and TikTok using this quite graphic imagery of this bear-like character with razor-sharp teeth.  It’s based around jump scares and things you certainly wouldn’t want children exposed to. If you were to use even YouTube Kids, for example, it may slip through because there is nothing obviously sinister about the name of a video.  It really comes down to paying attention to what your children are doing and making sure they are not just trusting YouTube Kids videos are safe because unfortunately with videos like this, things do slip through the cracks.” – Chris Conroy, Cyber Protection Officer (Dorset Police)
