This year, many children have a new popular toy — Huggy Waggy. It's a furry blue monster with a triangular head and a mouthful of needle-sharp teeth. The monster quickly won the sympathy of the children's audience, but it did not stop there. Hagi Vagi started appearing on T-shirts and bags, and then took over the Internet, becoming a popular meme. Who is this and what do children and adults find in a creepy freak?
Huggy Waggy is the antagonist hero of the horror genre game. He got his name from the English verb to hug — "to hug". The game takes place at a toy factory where an accident occurred. As a result of the incident, the good Huggy Waggy turned into a ruthless killer. The monster hunts the main character, trying to strangle him in his arms. To defeat the monster, you need to stop the conveyor, which is why the monster falls into the abyss.
Anton Yakovlev, founder and CEO of Igromir, believes that the secret of the popularity of the blue monster is simple. This scary toy gives emotions and is therefore so appreciated by everyone.
According to the businessman, there will always be a demand for scary and simply ugly toys. They are loved for the fact that they are the complete opposite of traditional, kind and cute, but annoying to all cats, dogs and bunnies.
Yes, kids like monsters. But such toys are fraught with danger. Natalia Manulova, a psychologist and neuroscientist, believes that children, playing with such toys, experience stress. It can seriously affect the development of a child. This is due to the fact that children are affected by almost everything that comes into their field of vision. Fear can leave an imprint on the worldview and psyche. Everything that surrounds kids should be beautiful, kind and harmonious. The psychologist says:
But what motivates adults who become connoisseurs of the monster Huggy Wagga? Most likely, this is a passion for the horror game itself or just a love for everything extraordinary. Older students may simply be interested in scary toys, thus expressing protest. After all, almost certainly parents do not understand and do not approve of such heroes. However, a teenage child already has a more stable psyche and is unlikely to get injured from contemplating Hagga Wagga.
In general, the love of certain things is a matter of taste, mentality and standard of living. Many toys of children from other countries may seem very strange to us.
