Children are Developing Accents After Watching Peppa Pig


If you're not familiar with Peppa Pig, you're lucky. Its a kids show that follows the life of "Peppa", a pig that lives in the UK. And its pretty much unbearable for adults. Since the show takes place in the U.K., its to be expected that Peppa has a British accent.

Many parents across the U.S. have reported that their kids are now developing the accent after watching the show! And not just the accent...they're picking up on British vocabulary too! The phenomenon has come to be known as the "Peppa Effect".

Parents have shared their stories via Twitter.

While this is absolutely ADORABLE, I can see how this would be problematic. But I guess the same thing probably happens to kids growing up in the UK. Imagine a bunch of little British kids running around with American accents!
