I suppose this could happen to anyone...it just depends how much your little darling really wants to win a cuddly toy.

Jamie Bracken-Murphy proved how determined he was by crawling into an arcade machine in a play centre in Nenagh to claim his teddy.

Things to do in Ireland on a rainy day

His father Damien explained when sharing details of this incident on his Facebook post that he was:

  • In play centre. 
  • Takes eyes off 3-year-old mischievous son for 6 seconds.
  • Hears muffled complaint near the amusements.
  • Look up, see this.

Fortunately, an off-duty fireman was also in the centre and he was able to help and direct little Jamie to climb back out the way he’d gone in.

And yes, he was allowed to keep the teddy!
