Does your toddler:
Jump in every muddy puddle that they come across?
Snort spontaneously at the end of a sentence?
Have a toy dinosaur and say “Grrrrrrrr…dinosaur” the WHOLE TIME
Own clothes, books, cuddly toys, games, cups and plates all featuring a certain “cheeky little” pink pig?
Possibly think that their new sibling will look like Baby Alexandro?
Say “Yuck” when they don’t like food?
Sing a song featuring the words “Bing” and “Bong”?
Boss everyone around and blow raspberries at people?
If so, you may have a case of PPA (Peppa Pig Addiction) on your hands.
PPA cases are being seen all over the UK and are particularly prevalent amongst children aged 2-4 although parents across the country are complaining that they too are being affected.
One worried mother on NetPigs thinks that she may have caught PPA from her 3 year old:
“I can’t stop singing the Bing Bong Song. It goes round and round my head. I also jumped in a muddy puddle the other day”.
Vaccinations are currently available on the NHS but only for the under 1’s. You can go private but it could cost up to £500.
Dr Brown Bear is a private GP and yesterday stated:
“We are now seeing a shortage of PPA vaccinations in private clinics. There should be more available later this year”.
A petition has been sent to The House of Commons.
If you can’t get hold of a vaccination, you are being advised to wash your child’s hands regularly, wean them off the series slowly and replace with “Sarah and Duck” or “Ben and Holly”.
