Well I dont know how dangerous a city Sun Prairie, Wisconsin is but what mother can keep a constant eye on an active 9 year old boy?
I also suspect that it would only take the kid 30 seconds to climb in to that machine. I have seen these machines and the chutes that the toys drop in to are not that complicated. A small child can easily get in side.
Personally I think the over protectiveness of parents today is damaging.

The kind that takes protecting her children seriously?
