Two Russian five-year-olds have gained worldwide attention after they tunnelled out of their preschool in an attempt to 'buy a sports car'.

The duo implemented their daring escape after 'several days' of planning, according to Agence France-Presse.

They dug under the kindergarten fence with toy spades and escaped while teachers and students were on a walk in the grounds. They then headed to a luxury car showroom a mile from their kindergarten in the city of Magnitogorsk.

When they arrived, the two boys told a woman at the showroom that they 'wanted to buy a Jaguar but didn't have any money', according to local newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda.

The two tykes were taken to a local police station to be collected by their parents and the teacher in charge at the time has been fired from the preschool.
