The children's TV show, which follows Peppa’s life in fictional UK town as she spends time with her family and animal friends, has achieved global success in recent years.
And in the US, young viewers appear to be adopting her southern British accent and vocabulary after watching the show.
Dozens of parents have taken to Twitter over the phenomenon, which has been dubbed the “Peppa effect”.
Dad Sylvester Kabajani said: “My four year baby girl loves watching Peppa Pig and I have noticed her accent and grammar is extraordinary.
“Last night I tucked her to sleep and she looks at me and says 'daddy, can you snuggle me' I was like what did you just say baby girl? I don't remember the last time I used that word.”
US mother and writer Janet Manley dubbed it the “Peppa effect” in a recent article for Romper, saying her daughter had started “calling me ‘Mummy’ and finishing her sentences with Peppa’s trademark snort.
“Two years later, she still oinks in conversation. Call it the Peppa effect,” she said.
