The Crane Game

I love it when this happens. What's awesome is that it isn't even the first time I've posted about this happening:

Boy gets caught in toy-filled 'claw' machine

I wonder if it was one of those "Play Until You Win" versions of the game. Because if so, I would've popped a quarter in there and poked at the kid for hours. Godfathers is yuckers.

Is that Johnny Knoxville in the first picture? I wouldn't put it past him to put his kid in the claw machine to get a quarter from people.

I don't have kids yet so I don't know this for sure, but I think that when your toddler dissapears in a restaurant, you're supposed to go looking for him. Or something? Parents, help me out here. Did I get that one right?

Wow - that kid should go caving - that was a pretty tight space he managed to get thru.
My husband (a caver) once managed to get his whole body thru a "squeeze box" w/ the lid at the height of a Heineken bottle. "Squeeze box": picture a 6 foot long box about 3 feet wide with the short ends open. The height of the top is adjustable.

"Yuckers"? Did you get that from the Wuzzles??

The obvious comment is that if the only way to get that kid out was by "winning" him he'd be in there for the rest of his life. Those claw machines are so impossible!

It fills me with warm fuzzies to know that such a thing is possible. That kid looks super happy to be in there- and honestly, who wouldn't enjoy being waist deep in stuffed animals?

That boy is a Darwin Award waiting to happen.

Just curious: could you post the link to when you blogged this kind of incident the first time?

Why wasn't anyone watching this kid?

The first time this happened and I posted about it is halfway down on this page:

With pictures included!

What the hell is that last picture of? Is he stuffed in a duffle bag?

I'm really confused.

Alright Claudia, I don’t know what your deal is telling that story about your husband crawling into a “squeeze box” but I’m having some difficulties breathing. Why would anyone want to do that? I think I’m going to cry just thinking about it…help, I can’t breath. Worst nightmare ever!!!! I don’t like getting wrapped in my sheets to tightly.

Neither do I Kris, hence my current lack of wardrobe when I sleep. No one likes being all tight and confined when you're in bed, unless you're into those kinds of things and I doubt you are sleeping in those instances.

By Blogger brent, at 3:39 PM  

Man, as soon as I saw the picture of him stuck in there, all I could think was... greeting card!

And yeah, this took time, and really, after your toddler goes unseen for a good 2 minutes, you look. Yikes.

the last pic is from when the news people went to their house. the kid crawled in the cameraman's camera bag. i'd suggest they put him on one of those kid leashes...

Sleeping...With the stuffed animals? JOKES!
Seriously, I imagine it's not entirely easy to scale the inside of a claw machine in no time flat, so as someone else said--where the hell were the parents??

By Blogger Monkey, at 9:53 PM  

Bad parents! Bad!

By Blogger Colleen, at 7:48 AM  

Cavers are wierd. It's like a badge of honor to be able to squeeze through small spaces....
