"I'm not the type of parent that ever thought I'd lose my kid in five seconds," Low said.

But hey, you could win him back in five seconds, too. Or you might end up with something else cuddly. Win/win I say.

Man, I'm totally playing for the cat.  Or the lobster harmonica.  Either one.

Article is useless without even a pic of the kid in the machine...parents these days, calling for help without even taking a pic.

Not a single person took a picture?

Claw machines have been around a long time.These stories maybe less than 10 years. Kids ain't getting any smaller so what's changed?

Electric toddler collar with spycam and heart rate monitor. If the kid wonders more than 15' away from it's owner, it get a shock. You apply this application to a adult collar also. If your man is getting all cuddly with someone else, you can give him a shock.

For those that didn't watch the video or RTFA

It wasn't a regular claw machine full of stuffed animals. It's one of those weird ones that has electronics and crap in it. He got trapped in a lower compartment were you can't see him

Lucky they found him but they would have eventually when the smell led them to his body.

At best it would be a pre-release. Probably version .8a

And this is why I don't judge parents who harness leash their toddlers. They only need a few seconds to wander off and get into all sorts of trouble. If that's what it takes for that parent to keep their cold safe, then I'd rather they have the leash than not.

FTFA - Now, Low said she hopes the makers of the machines Dawson got stuck in will rethink the design to prevent this from happening to anyone else.

Because we all know this child has not exhibited the desire to crawl into/onto/under/on top of/thru/around anything before... nope... never saw this coming... not my child... my child is a little angel who sits quietly and only speaks when spoken to... only moves when I tell him/her... only... excuse me? S/he is 2... *listener eye roll*

/okay sorry, but pluuueeezzee... you were close enough to the machine that had low openings that you turned for five seconds and S/he was gone??
//this is why we shouldn't have more children than we can safely handle... which for plenty of people means 'none'...
///would love to see a statistic on number of offspring vs getting away with stuff... surely 'only children' get the shaft on that chart...(random thought process at work here)

When I was a little kid, my Mom would have seen these stories on the news and warn me that if I even tried to crawl into one, my arse would be blistered. I was kind of a wild child back then.

It doesn't help that each time this happens, the media spreads the story across the nation for kids to see and imitate.

The kid was 22 months old.

"Why is your 2 year old out of your possesion long enough to crawl into a claw machine" would be my first question here. I don't expect parents to monitor their kids 24\7...but it's not a bad idea to keep constant tabs in public.

Bigger prize chutes.

they need to rethink their design/engineering??! no, you need to rethink your parenting and priorities. Dumb biatch. We aren't going to rethink having streets because you don't want your kid to be run over when you turn your back to them. Parenting classes. Child Protective Services.

After some effort, they were able to pull Dawson to safety. Low said Dawson was lethargic and sweaty because the machine he was in filled with light bulbs.

Light-bulbs? Man, these prizes suck. Totally not worth the $8.55 it took to win one
