I guess they taught this 4yr old well. After the child made an emergency call, it wasn’t long before the police showed up and discovered it.

It was an emergency call by a 4yr old New Zealand boy that gained the attention of the police, and he was asking them to come and check out his toys. This prompted a real-life callout and a confirmation from an officer that yes, his toys were indeed pretty cool.

The New Zealand police shared audio of the call on social media this week, along with a smiling boy sitting on the hood of the patrol cruiser, and while they were careful to note that while they don’t encourage just to call the emergency number willy-nilly, they found this incident to be “too cute not to share.”

Naturally, the call begins all business: “This is police, where is the emergency?”

First of all, there is a pause, and then the young boy hesitantly says, “Police lady?”

“Yes,” the dispatcher replied, and that is when she realized she was talking to a young child and she switched to a sing-song voice. “What’s going on?”

“Um, can I tell you something?” the boy asks the dispatcher. After being told he can, he says, “I’ve got some toys for you.”

“You’ve got some toys for me? the dispatcher asked cheerily.

“Yep. Come over and see them,” the boy replies.

There was a man who got on the phone shortly after that and confirmed that the call was a mistake, and you could tell that he was very embarrassed. He also told the police that the four-year-old had been helping out while his mother was sick.

Immediately after that there was a police dispatch call that went out, and they gave the address: “There is a four-year-old there who is wanting to show police his toys, over.”

“Yeah, I’m one-up, I’ll attend to it,” one officer responded.

This New Zealand Police Department said that the officer, who was only identified as Constable Kurt, was shown the little boy’s entire collection of toys at his house, which was located in the South Island city of Invercargill.

This New Zealand Police Department was also quick to note that the police officer was able to take the time to have a “good, educational chat” about how to properly use this emergency number, which is 111 in New Zealand.

“He did have cool toys,” Constable Kurt reported back after attending the callout, according to police. They added that: “The lucky 4yr old also got to see the patrol car and the officer put the lights on for him, too.”
