“How did they get in there?” one woman can be heard asking.

Shocked bystanders look on, as the girls move around on top of a mountain of soft toys.

Elizabeth City Centre told Yahoo7 News in a statement that the girls were safely freed while they are reviewing the use of skill tests machines in the shopping centre.

“We were alerted to two girls playing inside the machine yesterday afternoon by some concerned customers,” the statement said.

“Our team responded straight away, unlocked the skill test machine, and the girls were plucked, by hand, to safety without further incident.

“The safety and well-being of our customers is always our priority and we are now reviewing the use and safety of the skill test machines directly with the supplier at each of our centres to ensure children can play safely, on the outside, and not access the inside in the future.”

Elixabeth City Centre revealed the girls were given a new toy for their misfortune.

Last year, a Sydney toddler found himself in a similar predicament, managing to squeeze into a skill tester in Rouse Hill.
