Online Safety 

'Poppy's Playtime' Concerns

It has been brought to our attention that there is an online horror game which some children are talking about in school.  It is called Poppy’s Playtime and is based on a toy which chases you around a toy factory.  There is not an official rating for the game, however, it features an unpleasant-looking character called 'Huggy Wuggy' that young children may find upsetting.

Safer Schools has produced some guidance for parents about Poppy's Playtime and it can be accessed by clicking here.
