As a part of our infrequently running series, here is another video of a small agile child finding their way into the confines of a crane machine. You don’t have to think like a three- or four-year old to see the appeal of jumping into a pile of soft toys like a ball-pit. For a few venturous kids they will find their way into anything that gives them the space and sometimes that happens to be a crane machine. At times it happens in the blink of an eye when a parent has their attention turned elsewhere for a moment and sometimes things like this can happen because the parent apparently has better things to do. It’s something I’ve seen several times actually where they seem to think that its ok to leave a two year old alone in my arcade to wander while they shopped the mall.
