MARYVILLE, Tenn. (CNN) — At 18 months old, Colin Lambert is like most kids his age. He’s a rough and tumble kid who enjoys out-flanking his parents. And that’s exactly what he did earlier this week — when he got himself stuff in a toy vending machine.

Colin’s grandmother was watching him — and looked away for a moment while at the laudromat.

“I got a text message, looked down, flicked it, looked down and didn’t hear the bang. And with Colin, you have to hear the bang or you don’t see him for another 10 seconds,” said Diane O’Neill, Colin’s grandmother. “All I could see was his feet, he had already called in. I grabbed his feet and he kicked my hand and he got in climbed up and over glass partition and sat down in the toys.”

O’Neill quickly called the police and her daughter who was sleeping after a long day at work.

Colin never got upset about what happened. After all, he had a bunch of toys to play with while firefighters got him out. Once Colin was freed, we’re told the firefighters let Colin take one toy home.
