Lots of kids are susceptible to repeat certain phrases they hear on their fave cartoon shows, (my nephew Max went through a phase of saying “booooooring” to everything courtesy of Spongebob Squarepants.) Well now some parents are starting to make claims that Peppa Pig is causing their kids to adopt a Britsh accent.

The change in accent has been named the “Peppa Effect” by a parent whose daughter began saying “mummy” after watching the series on a long flight.  Other parents have flooded social media with comments that support the “Peppa Effect” and confirm that their kids’ vocabulary even changes after watching the show.
