Ok..who hasn't tried a crack at this:
Of course, at any of the ones I have seen, the prizes are not stacked to the top of the machine...In my life I have never seen anyone win a prize from the Claw Game that I can remember...but that all changed last Saturday... I was having dinner with the fam and on our way out Lil Man wanted to try...well, the first $1 I so had to help him since he thought he was playing Galaga with the joystick...no prize...he tried later and he totally won this on his own!
Way to go Lil Man!!! We were all cheering and giving high-fives in the waiting area...even people waiting to be seated joined in on the celebration...He was all excited...but as we walked out his face turned really sad. I asked him what was wrong since he had just won an amazing prize (kinda went all Ed McMahon on him) he said that he wanted the dog...I tried to talk up the bunny and doesn't this kiddo know that you don't always win with that stinkin' game...he then said that he had to give it to his baby sister...I asked him why and he said "because it's pink"...Why didn't I know that?? duh, Aunt K...boys cannot touch pink...
