A young boy has written an adorable note to his neighbour after accidentally losing his balls over the fence.

‘P.S. There might also be a frisbee,’ the heartfelt note explains.
The boy from Mt Albert in Auckland made sure to leave a box of chocolates in return for his toys, writing: ‘Chocolates to say thanks’.
The ‘wholesome’ note intrigued those online as many wondered if the boy got his balls back.
The neighbour responded jokingly: ‘Of course! The frisbee is a keeper though. You need to give Whittaker’s to get the frisbee back.’
Others reminisced over times they had also lost items over their neighbours’ fence as kids.
‘When we were kids, over the fence is six runs and out. But everyone just jumped each other’s fences to get their ball back.
‘Or if we didn’t know them, maybe knocked on the front door first to see if they’re home, then if not, just went into the backyard and grabbed it,’ one wrote.
Another said: ‘Good approach. Growing up in East Auckland, I once kicked a ball into my neighbour’s backyard. On my way over to ask them for the ball back, I made eye contact with the person through their kitchen window. She immediately closed the curtains.’
