Every little girls wants to be a fairy and if Disney isn’t enough to instill this image in the minds of young girls, there are multiple cartoons, games and stories that talk about Fairy Godmothers. This might seem like fun for most, but for these mothers in Russia this has turned into a nightmare.
A viral game is now telling little girls how they can turn into fairies. These tips could end up killing whole families! 5 year old Sofia Ezhova from Russia searched how to become a fairy and came across a meme with the Winx Club: School of Witches characters displayed on the front.
The image is enticing but the instructions ask players to wait till their entire family goes to sleep, take three rounds of their bedrooms and chant. The scary part comes when it asks children to sneak away to the kitchen, explicitly asking them to not be noticed by adults, and switch on all the burners on the gas stove and then go to sleep.
Even without lighting the stove, the gas itself can kill entire families. Sophia burnt herself in the incident, while another mother fears her whole family could have died.
It does not matter whether it was a joke, a prank or an easy method of sending parents into panic. Parents must always monitor their children’s activities online, talk to them about safety measures and share whatever they find online.
