Kael Ireland showed it’s easier to get into arcade machines than to get prizes out, after he was spotted behind the glass playing with stuffed toys.

The intrepid three-year-old wandered out of his Lincoln home on Monday afternoon, resulting in his worried mother calling the police when she realised he was missing.

Staff at Madsen’s Bowling and Billiards believe the child crawled through the chute where prizes are dropped into, WOWT reports.

‘How did he get in there? That’s pretty much what everyone was saying,’ bartender Rachell Hildreth told the Lincoln Journal Star.

‘He was just having a heyday,’ Ms Hildreth added. ‘He didn’t notice anyone around him.’

His mother, Ashley Ireland, said it was ‘the most scared she had ever been’.

Kael was freed after staff at the bowling centre called the vending machine’s operators for instructions on how to open it.

The youngster was given a teddy bear from inside the machine to bring home after being reunited with his mother.
