Children have watched Peppa Pig and Fortnite videos on YouTube and social networks according to the scary online "challenge" of Momo's game, according to UK primary schools.
The Momo trend, which seems to originate in Japan, is the first viral sensation that appears in the WhatsApp social network, an image of a young woman's sculpture, violent eyes, long black hairs, legs and distortion.
The image has been linked to various events around the world, as children and adolescents have taken their own lives or tried to hurt their pictures and send them to the graphics.
Haslingden Primary Education, mid-England, said yesterday that some of his students have started up with images.
"Video clips appear on many social networks and on YouTube (including Kids YouTube)," he said in a social media school.
"A video is started innocently, for example, the beginning of a Peppa Pig episode, but it becomes a rapidly modified version of violence and abusive language.
"Another video clip comes with the name of" Momo ", which shows a black mask, promising children to do dangerous tasks without telling their parents. In the examples we have seen in the school, children are going to turn on gas or find pills and take them."
Northcott School, in the United Kingdom, also reflected concerns about its social issues, saying that students were in contact with violent images related to Momo.
In spite of the reports, an Australian YouTube spokeswoman said 9News.com.au did not accept Momo videos on the platform.
"Against the press reports," we do not have the latest evidence of videos that show or promote YouTube's Momo challenge, "said the spokesman.
"This content may violate our policies and will be immediately deleted."

According to online forums, Momo is committed to "doxed" self-harm and suicide.
Doxing happens when someone hacks your private information and threatens sharing it online or as a blackmail.
While three Australian Australian Momo tenders do not prove to be Australian, the eSafety Commissioner Julie Inman Grant told 9News.com.au parents should still be innocent.
"As reported by Momo Challenge, when they depict the content or emotions suffered by young people".
"Unfortunately, Momo Challenge is not the first and not the latest" damage "challenge or our phenomenon targeted at our children.
"Our studies show that 81 percent of parents have a child-connected device on the internet since age 4, so parenting and online child care activities have been critically critical since they are critics of the beginning.
"Young people often do not have maturity or trial content to cope online, it is essential to drive and start critical reasoning skills, so knowing that it is not visible or what is online is real.
"We help you make questions about sharing, copying, playing games, games, and apps, and we recommend that you contribute to them, if they are unpleasant or inconvenient about what they see online.
The Iparraldeko police last year is concerned that the violent police warns of the abuse of the dangerous feeling that it is threatening to threaten the lives of local children.
"Even though the basic open source research suggests that" Momo "is hackers who seek personal information," said Craigavon Police in a statement published on Facebook.
"Whatever or who is behind it, there is no debate about what the content is being horrendous.
"The risk is that your children press pressure by continuing to" follow "the demands of any type or through pressure on the classrooms.
"Curse contacts sends a number and tells you to get in touch with WhatsApp. A video of these interactions … shows the voice recording that is a serious mistake to tell a baby knife sent to his baby.
"Another threatens the family not to end" a challenge ". It is visionary. There are many variations and, of course, imitators today."
12-year-old boy from 12 years of age has come and a 16-year-old boy has been in Colombia for 48 hours, including deaths in the Momo game.
One month before, a 12-year-old girl was found dead in the yard of Buenos Aires in Buenos Aires, and at the same time were investigating potential game links.
The Momo sensation has been linked to similar urban horror stories like Slenderman, and has become so popular in South American countries. Parents have warned about possible dangers of game and copycat.
