The cash, which was tied to the end of the a gold balloon, was placed inside a box while his family members eagerly filmed the special moment.
The video footage, shared to Twitter by users Dubs Life, shows the boy eagerly untying the blue ribbon around the large gold balloon sitting on a box.

His family act in shock as they try to grab the balloon, but it makes a quick escape.
