14-Month-Old Toddler Accidentally Bought A Car Online After Playing With Dad's Phone



The next time a toddler asks to play with your smartphone, you might want to think twice. They could text someone, post nonsensical baby gibberish to your Facebook page, or worst, purchase something from an online store.

That's exactly what happened to Paul Stoute of Portland, Oregon, when he was surprised to receive an email from eBay congratulating him on his purchase and requesting payment for the transaction.
"I actually thought it was a phishing email – one of those where people try to steal your information, that kind of thing," he told ABC News.

But it wasn't a scam – his baby daughter, Sorlla had indeed made the purchase of the 1962 Austin Healey Sprite for $US242. As the price suggests, the car requires a lot of work, although a Sprite in good condition can fetch a considerable amount of money.

The 14-month-old allegedly went on a shopping spree on the eBay app on her Paul's phone while playing with it.

"My initial thoughts were panic," Paul told ABC. He contacted the seller to see if another bidder would take the car, but ultimately decided to go through with the transaction.

Paul plans to keep the car and restore it to give to his daughter for either her 16th birthday or as a high school graduation present. After all, she's the one who bought it.

“I’m just glad she didn’t buy the $38,000 Porsche I was looking at,” he said.
