The Huggy Buddies (or correctly known as Mini Huggies within the game) are minor antagonists in the 2021 indie horror game Poppy Playtime, serving as four of the secondary antagonists (alongside Bunzo Bunny and PJ Pug-A-Pillar) in Chapter 2: Fly In a Web.
Similar to Huggy Wuggy, the Mini Huggies are long legged, furry entities that come in a variety of fur colors such as green, red and blue. Their hands appear to have straps of Velcro on them allowing them to grip onto objects, and have four fingers and thumbs but are fused together in a glove-like fashion leaving them unable to move individually a design mirrored on each foot. They appear much shorter than Huggy Wuggy at roughly 1/10th the original size with disproportionately short torsos and long, jointless limbs, however this is purely speculation since they could be bigger than they appear. The Mini Huggies do look human sized when you get jumpscared. Like all other Huggy Wuggy type toys, they have large eyes with black, dilated pupils and large bright red lips, with rows of small teeth.
Chapter 2: Fly in a Web
The Mini Huggies act as gaming mechanics for the Whack-a-Wuggy game. Having detached from their strings that were once used to pull them back if they got too close to the children, the Mini Huggies are now tasked to exit their holes to attack and kill the player. They do so by catching the player's head and breaking their neck.
The player will receive a game over if they failed to push the Mini Huggies back into their respective holes on time. If the player succeeds in the game, the Mini Huggies will retreat back into their holes and stay immobile.
A few minutes after the player leaves the area, faint noises of trashing sounds and screams of Mini Huggies can be heard. This implied how Mommy Long Legs is killing them for failing to get rid of the player in the Whack-a-Wuggy game.
Near the end of the game, if the player heads back to the Whack-a-Wuggy game area, all eighteen of the Mini Wuggies are gone. The player can spot the corpses of the Mini Huggies sticked to the ceiling of the Game Station covered in Mommy Long Leg's spunned webs, although only three of the eighteen Mini Huggies are present. The whereabouts of the other fifteen are unknown. Other things like Bunzo Bunny and smaller toys are also sticked to the ceiling.
- Upon digging into the game's assets, an audio file titled "mommy_kills_mini_huggies.uasset" can be found in the game's programming. This audio file is played shortly after players leave the Whack-a-Wuggy game area in the gameplay. Hence confirming how the Mini Huggies are indeed killed by Mommy Long Legs.
