How the hell do they do that? It looks like his shoulders or hips would get stuck at some point.

Rescue workers spend $35 in quarters to get him out.  "Don't worry, lady.  Those claw marks in his skull will rub right out."

They say he climbed in through the back, not the front chute.  Was he too farking stupid to get back out the same way he got in?

Ah well.
Maybe little Timmy crawled in there due to the brain damage he suffered during last week's Whack-a-Mole confinement?

As often as this happens you'd think the machines would have a nice big door that could be unlocked and opened by the staff instead of needing to call the fire department all the time.

I once win three unique plush Smurfs with a single grab.  I was delighted.

if that were an adult i'd be worried about what that knob was attached to

Part of me always thought if my kid did this, I'd buy the machine off the vending company and roll it home.

/How is the kid going to learn if the fire department is always getting him out of trouble?
//Honey, who's at the door? Social Services? what could they be doing here?

Maybe he wanted to go on to a better place.

Why did they call the Fire dept.. Don't they have keys.

Commenters were pleased with happy-ending story and impressed with the agility of the child, whose age was not provided.
"Kid might have a prosperous future as a contortionist or an escape artist," said one.


Err... apparently not.

Often a vendor owns the machine, and thus has the key

This being Florida, I'm guessing a parent egged him on and pretended to be a victim when things turned bad

At Capone's in Fort Lauderdale they have a claw machine containing live lobsters. You win it, they'll cook it for free.

Creepiest game I've ever played, my friend was giggling in horrified delight as she pumped about 8 bucks in it.
 
2018-02-08 02:43:51 PM  
Maybe they should consider making them with smaller doors and skipping the huge prizes?

Just a thought.

Give me one of those supersized for cows, and I'd be right there with a roll of quarters.

"He came out with some toys," Sutton said. "He did end up with what he was after."

So arrest the little bastard for stealing!!

There's one in Minneapolis at Burrito Loco.  Pulled one completely out of the water once, but it wiggled and fell back in

/There's probably a few in Vegas as well

I want to find a restaurant with a claw machine containing livestock. Grab a cow, pig or chicken and you get one hell of a meal. Grab animal dung and you get a salad.

I say leave him in there, maybe he'll get thirsty or hungry and then try to get out. I wouldn't save the game go after it with a die (heh) grinder, then ask him how he screwed up, saying he ruined it for everyone else. Give him a lot of emotional baggage.
