Mom Learns About Horrific New Game After 5-Year-Old Left With Serious Burns

Young children often fall victim to a variety of online scams circulating social media and other online websites. However, these scams have rarely led to immediate danger for children learning about the internet. In a disturbing change, a social media scam circulating in Russia reveals a sinister suicide mission, modeled as a spell for young girls to turn into ‘fire fairies’. The hoax, based on popular children’s’ program ‘Winx Club: School of Witches’, tells young, easily influenced girls, that if they recite the ‘magic words’ after turning on the gas burners on their stove, that they will become ‘fire fairies’. This sadistic ‘game’ has led to a string of near deaths and accidents, including a case of severe burns all over the body of a 5-year-old girl named Sofia Ezhova.

The scam itself is written inoffensively and appears harmless on a superficial level, featuring garish colors and cartoon characters. The post reads as follows: “At midnight when everybody is asleep, get up from your bed and go around the room three times, then say the magical words: Alfey kingdom, sweet little fairies, give me the power, I’m asking you. Go to the kitchen silently, so no one notices you or the magic of the words will disappear. Switch on the gas stove, all four burners. But do not light it. You don’t want to get burns, do you?”. Appallingly, the children are then instructed to go to sleep or the “magic” won’t work.

The dangerous and life threatening game was brought to the attention of Police in the Vladimir region of Russia when terrified parents complained to authorities. One parent, in particular, told reporters she “woke up in the night and felt the strong smell of gas. My daughter, seven, had just left the kitchen and went to her room. It turned out that she had read [the ‘spell’] on the internet… If I had not gone to check, our family of eight would not wake up in the morning”. Police have stressed the importance of monitoring children’s use of the internet, emphasizing their vulnerability and the ease at which they can be exploited by sadistic scammers. Police are working on leads in an attempt to find the creator of the dangerous post.
