Mother's nightmare? She doesn't look so upset. Who's holding the camera and taking the picture (look at the mirror)...

Way to go kid!!! If you want something bad enough, don’t let a few obstacles get in your way.

“Lolly Machine”, it’s so amusing to see the Brits try to speak English.

I don’t get the urgency here. They have keys that will easily open the box.

It’s a little hot and stuff in there, but it’s not dangerous. It’s not like it’s the Lobster Claw Grab machine :)

I’d rather be stuck in the stuffed animal machine! The one in the story looks like one of those crappy Dumdum & plastic frog machines. This kid needs to reconsider his strategy.

At least in a stuffed animal machine, you can lie back and take a nap.

I call BS on all of these stories. Just because there are photos don't mean that anyone actually climbed inside of the machine through a small opening.

There are lots of staged “jealous husbands pointing a rifle at an adulterer in red undershorts while hanging on the ledge” photos in Russia.

Slow news day, I reckon.

I have a 2 year old that is a prime risk for something like this. ;-)

The other night he kept finding the bag of lollipops (no matter how high up in the kitchen we put them), pulling the wrappers off about ten of them and then ran around the house in a sugar-high gleeful state with a bunch of them in each hand. Talk about pure toddler joy...

If that is the mother in the reflection, she doesn't look very upset.

I think it would be only right for the mother to keep popping quarters into the machine until she snags her son back.

The salt water taffy pulling machines on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City would have been quite a stretch!

“I call BS on all of these stories”

When I was three years old I wandered away from my parents at the zoo and was clearing the top of the elephant fence before my dad got to me.

Shows the determination to get what he wants is there. He’s going to be a success in life, mark my words.

I agree. He managed to put himself in a confined space and he is thoroughly happy about his situation. He’ll probably be the first person to land on Mars.
