Fears Momo 'suicide game' has spread to Britain after seven-year-old boy tells his school friends doll-like creature would kill them in their sleep


The evil suicide game Momo that encourages youngsters to kill themselves has spread to the UK, it has been reported.
A creepy woman with straggly hair, protruding eyes and a devil grin called “Momo” entices kids to contact her through WhatsApp then starts sending them graphic images and instructions to harm themselves and others - or she will “curse them”.
It is believed Momo is linked to the death of a 12-year-old girl in Argentina.
Now a British mum has warned the dangerous game many have spread to Manchester.
The parent, who asked not to be identified, says she was "deeply alarmed" when her seven-year-old son's teacher told her he'd made threats to other children in school.
After talking to her son about it, she discovered it was because of the Momo challenge.
In her post, shared in the Love Westhoughton Facebook group, she said: "When I collected him from school the teacher asked to talk to me.
"She said he had made three kids cry by telling them that 'Momo was going to go into their room at night and kill them'.
"When we got home I spoke to him about this and he told me that some kids at school had told him to look at the 'Momo challenge' which he did."
She added: "When we watched a video the ‘Momo' character told him to tell everyone to fear Momo or it will kill him in his sleep. So I have one very frightened little boy and some deep concerns about the kids in his school.
"Parent controls are as tight as could be and this **** still slips through. So if you have a child it would be well worth it to open up a dialogue about idiots online and try to get ahead of this."
Adele Jennings writes the Our Family Life blog and her tips on helping kids stay safe online have been shared by web safety experts Internet Matters.
 She said: "We hold our children's hand to cross the road because we can see that danger, we cannot see the dangers online.
"I have an eight-year-old son and a 15-year-old daughter and honestly, I don't always know what they are getting up to online, but I am learning.
"We are the first generation of parents to learn about the dangers this new online world can bring. And we don't have experience of parents before us offering advice as it has never happened before.
"The online games and social media companies need to do more but as parents we have to find out and learn more about what our children are getting up to while online.

"Only by talking to them, and knowing how to block and report inappropriate content can we start to make a difference, but we have to do our homework.

The grotesque avatar was created by Japanese special effects company Link Factory and designed by artist Midori Hayashi who has no relation whatsoever to the game.
The real title of the artwork is Mother Bird and was on display at Tokyo’s horror art Vanilla Gallery.
