If you think toddlers and kids buying virtual coins was crazy, here’s a kid that purchased a car from eBay via a smartphone.

14-month old Sorella Stoute from Portland, Oregan ended up purchasing a 1962 Austin Healey Sprite from eBay after having fun with her dad’s smartphone. Sorella’s dad hadn’t known about the purchase until he received an email later on telling him that he won the bid for just $225.

What’s even funnier about this story is that after some thinking, the child’s parents decided that they’d keep the car and restore it over time for her 16th birthday. Sorella’s parents have also learnt the valuable lesson of putting lock codes on their phones so that she doesn’t make the mistake again in the future by purchasing something even more expensive.
