Parents say 'Peppa Pig' is giving their kids British accents


AUSTIN, Texas (CBS Austin) - Some parents outside the United Kingdom are claiming their toddler's are developing British accents after watching a children's TV show.

"Peppa Pig" is allegedly shaping the speech patterns of non-British children to sounds as if they've spent some time in England.

People magazine reports that parents all over social media have begun bonding over what they’re describing as the “#PeppaEffect.”

A Dartmouth College language director tells Romper that this mimicry of Peppa's accent is perfectly normal, and it all boils down to how much they are being exposed to it.
