I doubt they needed that many people to get the boy safely out of the claw machine. Most of those have an entire side that opens to make it easy to fill.

This is why I took a stand against so-called "claw machines" and joined People for the Ethical Treatment of Stuffed Animals.

They feel his pain and hope he got to keep the toy afterwards.

Maybe I'm just drunk and being an ass, but if mom was so inattentive that her snowflake was able to leave their house, go to a bowling alley across the street and managed to climb into this machine, maybe CPS should be involved.

Are you trying to tell us subliminally that PETSA is PETA for smart people?

According to the news last night he did.

My wife would have gotten him out on the first try. She has an amazing talent for the claw machine.

I'm beginning to suspect that parents are putting their kids into claw machines on purpose so they can get on the teevee.

I guess it's OK to ignore your toddler long enough for them to go across the street and into a claw machine as long as you're appropriately upset when you figure out you lost them.

My position has always been that one of my key duties as a parent is to not lose my kids, but I seem to be in the minority.

She wasn't inattentive. She went to the bathroom (probably to take a dump), and when she came out, he was gone. What, was she supposed to drag him into the bathroom while she took a dump? I do agree she should have locked the door, though, as toddlers are known to open unlocked front doors and escape.

I can't ever get anything out of those machines. How do kids keep getting in?
