Parents have claimed that their children are picking up British accents from watching the popular children’s television show, Peppa Pig.
This is probably the funniest and most accurate thing I’ve read all week. Kids are like sponges, the pick up anything. Jus tlike when you say a bad word they pick it up immediately. I know from experience OOPS…
The cartoon depicts character Peppa and her family in a fictional British town filled with other animal families.
It first aired in 2004 and is popular both in the U.K. and the U.S.
Peppa’s British accent is now apparently rubbing off on children from all over the world.
A mother in Kansas City shared a clip on social media of her three-year-old son who had picked up a British accent.
Others soon followed and parents from across the US have taken to social media talking about their children’s new-found accents.
Peppa Pig has become somewhat of a phenomenon in the last 15 years, with a range of merchandise being sold across the world.
My youngest son has recently become obsessed with Peppa Pig and has even adopted a fake British accent. Confession: So have I. Good night! Snort snort! pic.twitter.com/9QJMUC0V7s— Paul R. La Monica (@LaMonicaBuzz) February 11, 2019
