PHOENIX – Parents, you’ve probably heard your kid say “I’m Peppa Pig! *Snort*” a few times, but have you also noticed them pick up a slight British accent?
Some American parents claim that their children have developed a British accent after watching the TV show.
The children have picked up on British expressions like “straightaway,” “mummy,” “zeh-bra” or “wei-ard” instead of “weird.”
Many parents have taken to Twitter to share their stories about the #PeppaEffect.
