What Is The Little Miss Trend?

What Is The Little Miss Trend?

The Little Miss trend has taken over social with children's characters filling up feeds. So, where did the meme come from?

The Little Miss trend has taken over everyone's social media in the past few days with feeds filled with the children's illustrations.

So, where did the children's characters come from?

The illustrations are from the popular Mr. Men and Little Miss children's book series created in the 1970s and 1980s. The books were made by British author Roger Hargreaves. Hargreaves said the books were inspired by his son Adam who asked him what a tickle would look like. His children's series sold millions and were adapted into several TV series.

Hargreaves died in 1988 and Adam took over Mr. Men with new drawings and stories.

The drawing have now also reached a new height of internet fame in becoming a meme format.

The memes first became popular when @juulpuppy on Instagram began creating and personalising the characters in April this year. However, the meme format has been around seen since last year on Tumblr.

People all over social media are now creating their own characters with 'Mr Receding Hairline', 'Little Miss Cries To Taylor Swift Even When Happy' and 'Little Miss Bipolar Disorder', and much more.

Juulpuppy remade one personal to themselves called "Little Miss Uncredited Creator Of This Meme Format". They said they are happy people are having fun with the meme, but added they have "'reaped very few of the benefits from this trend that I jump started'.

The meme is primarily based on self-deprecating jokes (like most of Twitter) alongside some people sharing personal medical informations and insecurities not normally shared online.

One person tweeted: "Learning people's medical history/insecurities based off of what 'little miss/little mr' memes they repost."

Twitter's most popular characters have included 'Little Miss Shared Trauma', 'Little Miss Won't Ask For Help Even With A Knife In Her Leg' and even the very self-aware 'Posting A Self-Identifying Meme, Grasping For A Sense Of Community In An Increasingly Alienating Digital Landscape'.

The trend has also reached TikTok with #littlemiss generating over 85m views. TikToker @starbuckslayqueen is given credit for bringing the meme onto the video app with their 'Little Miss Forgets To Eat' and 'Little Miss Depression Nap'.

Users have also taken the format further in using it to call out red flags in partners and point out toxic traits in exes with 'Mr Can't Say Sorry' and 'Mr Emotionally Unstable'.
