This sounds like something I would have done as a kid!

According to KLKN out of Nebraska, a three year old disappeared from his home.  His mother contacted the police and they ended up finding him playing in the claw machine arcade game at the bowling alley across the street from their apartment.

 

I would love to know how that kid figured out how to get in there. I tried to figure out how to get at those stuffed animals so hard when I was a kid and failed. He's pretty much my hero!
