Social media, gossip websites and mommy blogs are abuzz about the antics of a young Florida girl who climbed inside a large skill crane and began handing out plush to other kids in an arcade. A picture of the event snapped by the parent of another child has been making the rounds on Reddit, Perez Hilton, Huffington Post and Gawker, among other rumor sites.

The pint-size Robin Hood, reportedly from Ft. Lauderdale, has apparently struck a nerve. News organizations around the world, including England’s Daily Mail, have picked up on the story after it first appeared on Reddit. Comments posted on websites have been nearly unanimous in hailing the young lady as heroic.
