Secret Stash

2011-11-09_10-37-45_232

I caught my 19 month old son sticking one of his crayons in the VCR. When I went to take it away from him I noticed something bright and yellow sticking out of the flap so on closer examination this is what I discovered inside. Yep, that’s Halloween candy in there. I removed about 14 pieces of candy as well as 2 more crayons and some refrigerator magnets. There is still a Tootsie Pop in there but it’s shoved so far back in there I can’t get it out.

    Sorry for your machine, but this is too funny. Might I suggest a pair of ‘cheater’ chopsticks to fish the remaining candy out?

    A VCR is an electronic you find in the back of antique stores by something called cassette players (also known as tapes).

    you can remove the outer case which should allow you to extract the remaining candy.

    Stick a nylon stocking over the end of a vacuum hose and you might be able to get everything out of there.

    When my son was about the same age, he put a ton of staples in our VCR.  It still rattles a bit.  Good luck with the tootsie pop.

    My sister went thru the same. Her youngest daughter stuck stuff in “Mommy’s VCR”, and Sis had me deal with it. A few screws from the sides of the outer shell, lifted off said shell, and found bread crusts, and don’t remember what else.
    I have scrapped (for the metals) laterally 100s of kaput VCRs (and other equipment) from electronics repair shops, and found all kinds of toys, change, crumbs, etc., inside.

    My kid shoved DVD’s – cover and all – into our VCR. I rescued all of them by removing the VCR cover.

      Did your kid try shoving VHS cassettes into the DVD player?

    For anyone who has this problem, I’ve taken apart several VHS decks and they all had the tape compartment exposed by removing the top of the chassis. As long as nothing has gotten into the electronics or fallen through any holes and now *underneath* the mechanics you’ll be fine. Just as long as the VCR wasn’t actually *running* with the stuff in it-otherwise it would melt (unlikely that a tape would load and play properly with any candy in it)
