TARANTO, Italy, Jan. 14 (UPI) -- Police in an Italian city said a 4-year-old boy who considered himself too old for his pacifiers called authorities to surrender the baby toys.

Taranto police said the boy called the emergency line a few days before his birthday and explained that he thought the police should have his old pacifiers, ANSA reported Thursday.

"I'm old enough now so you can have my dummies," the boy told the operator.

Police said two officers visited the boy's birthday party and traded him a souvenir hat in exchange for his four old pacifiers.
