Little Girl in Claw Machine

Kidmazing: Don't Hate the Player

Anyone who has ever played the "claw" game at an arcade knows just how difficult it is to get those pesky metal "fingers" to actually grasp a furry toy. While her parents were out of sight, a three–year–old lil girl outsmarted the game as she crawled into the machine and pawed all of the playful options. If seeing is believing, watch the clip above to see how she got out of the glass case.

I believe this is from awhile back and resulted in a change in how the chute works - the flap now creates a seal that a child couldn't get past. I wouldn't be telling my child to slide back out, I'm afraid they'd get stuck. I'd be calling 911 immediately. I'm surprised she didn't bring a toy back out with her, and I agree with the above poster about being shocked that she was rewarded for it.

that mother walks by the machine 2 or 3 times before she realizes her kid was in there and who's bright idea was to send the girl back in there for a promo video. I do however think this little girl is super resourceful and cute

Ha! That happened on an episode of How I Met Your Mother, but I didn't think it could really happen. [On HIMYM the kid got to keep all the toys...but only because he peed on them.]
