They advised that it is not appropriate for children to watch any Huggy Wuggy videos.
Chris Conroy, cyber protection officer for Dorset Police said: “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.”
