Three-year-old Kael Ireland escaped from his Nebraska home on Tuesday.
He was found at a nearby bowling alley - inside a toy game machine, seen here in amateur video.
Employee Rachell Hildreth was shocked by the sight.
SOUNDBITE (English) MADSEN'S BOWLING EMPLOYEE, RACHELL HILDRETH, SAYING:
"We're like, how did he get in there? That's pretty much what everybody was saying. Like, how did he get in there? I guess the only thing we can think of is that he crawled up where the prizes come out, but it still seems a little impossible."
After being safely removed from the toy "bear claw," the three-year-old was reunited with his mother, Ashley Ireland.
SOUNDBITE (English) KAEL'S MOTHER, ASHLEY IRELAND, SAYING:
"I washed my hands and by the time I got done washing my hands he had disappeared out the front door."
Ireland described her son as "pretty wild."
Authorities say there was no apparent indication of neglect.
