The next video below started with a little girl playing with a toy:

Then, the Momo character appears after a few seconds into the video asking the viewer to go get a sharp instrument like a razor blade, knife or scissors:

The viewer is then asked to slit his/her wrist:

This character encourages children to perform harmful acts without telling their parents. The video usually starts innocently, like the start of a Peppa Pig episode, but quickly turns into an altered version with violence and offensive language, and it is alleged that the Momo Challenge has already been linked to more than 130 suicidal deaths in Russian.

What is this Creepy "Momo" Character?

The "Momo" Character:

The creepy character is nothing but a sculpture of "Mother bird" made by a Japanese artist and displayed in Vanilla horror art gallery in Tokyo, and has nothing to do with the "Momo Challenge"

Although a lot of websites claim The "Momo Challenge" is a hoax and urban legend about a nonexistent social media challenge that was spread on Facebook and other media outlets, the videos still exist. Therefore, parents and guardians are asked to monitor what their children watch on the internet or social media websites.

"Baby Shark" is a children's song about a family of sharks. Having long been popular as a campfire song, it has been popularized since the mid-2010s by social media, online video, and radio.

    Children under 13 shouldn’t be using YouTube, Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and other social media platforms. And those videos shouldn’t be a problem for teenagers and adults, beside is not that common that older people watch Peppa Pig or Bany Shark.

    As for children, Google/YouTube have assured that their platform YouTube Kids doesn’t have any video with the momo character embedded. They’re constantly monitoring their content in search for any suspicious activity.

    Even on their platform YouTube they said that any content challenging to do something that will result in harm to anyone, is strictly forbidden. The video expamples that you’re showing here were posted to YouTube and Facebook respectively.

    As YouTube says that the Momo character is allowed but not the challenge, and as far as I know, Facebook doesn’t have any restrictions about it. So, As long as you keep your children away from grownup apps, they should be safe.
