A Wisconsin boy trying to win a toy from one of claw-style vending machine seemed to run out of patience and decided to take matters into his own hands by climbing into the machine.His parents found the boy inside the toy machine at Wal-Mart.

Firefighters say they don't know how the boy managed to get inside, but he somehow wiggled his way through the one-foot by one-foot hole where the prize is usually dropped.

"We actually tried to get his attention a few times because he was playing," said Lt. Dan Cotter from the local fire department. "He was happy to be in there, but I don't think mom and dad were too happy."

The boy got to take two of the toys home.
