A 4-year-old boy in New Zealand, who made an emergency call to have the police come and look at his toys, was shocked by a visit by an officer who confirmed that his toys were indeed very nice.


Call Was issued by the Southern Police District on October 15, which wrote on Facebook that although it doesn’t encourage kids to call the emergency number “to show us our toys, it was too cute not to share.”

In the call, it normally begins: “It’s the police, where’s the emergency?”

“Police lady?” The boy says in the recording.

“Yes,” says the dispatcher, changing in a friendly tone. “Whats up?”

“Um, can I tell you something?” The boy asks, and then adds, “I have some toys for you.”

“You have some toys for me?” Dispatcher says.

“Yes. Come and see them,” the boy replies.

A man is heard on the line explaining to the dispatcher that the call was a mistake, adding that the boy was helping while his mother was sick and “went out” to call.

The police dispatch calls any available units to go home: “There’s a 4-year-old out there who wants to show his toys to the police.”

“Yeah, I’m ready, I’ll participate,” answers one officer.
