'The claw!'

I’m glad neither of my kids have ever done this—although I wouldn’t put it past them to try.

A 3-year-old boy in Minnesota managed to climb inside one of those “claw-grabber” toy machines. Firefighters had to come get the kid out. But he was laughing and having a great time. In fact, he didn’t want to leave.

This isn’t the first time this has happened. A boy got stuck in of these things two years ago in a Wisconsin grocery store and another one worked his way up the toy chute last year in an Indiana Wal-Mart.

Maybe there’s something to this? Lock your kid inside the toy box while you go do your shopping. We could be on to the next big thing!

if the claw doesn't have enough strength to get a stuffed animal... how many quarters would it take before you gave up?

Maybe it's me, but, where the heck was mom when the kid was crawing into the machine. It had to take this kid at least 2 minutes to do this. So you're telling me the Mom takes her 3 year old son to a crowded restaurant and takes her eyes off the kid for at least two minutes??? I guess she missed that part of parenting 101 entitled...Know where your kid is a all times!!! Another clueless parent not doing her job.
