A recent incident is a hard reminder that why it’s not wise to give your phone to a toddler. Recently, a toddler in the US’ New Jersey went on a shopping spree online while playing with his mom’s phone.
22-months-old Ayaansh Kumar accidentally ordered furniture worth $2,000 (Rs 1.4 lakh) online, NBC New York reported.
Ayaansh’s parents had just moved into a new home and his mother Madhu Kumar, was browsing furniture on Walmart’s website. She added some items to her shopping cart but had not yet purchased any of them.
But, when the packages started arriving at her door, she was left confused. She asked her husband and two older kids if they have bought the items. But it wasn’t them. It was her youngest son Ayaansh, as per NBC New York.
Toddler’s dad, Pramod Kumar told NBC New York, “It is really hard to believe that he has done this, but that’s what happened,” He further added, “Moving forward, we will put tough passcodes or face recognition so when he picks up the phone he finds it in locked condition.”
Now, the toddler’s parents are planning to wait until all the boxes arrive and then drive the items back to their local Walmart to return them, where they have been told they will receive a full refund. As per the sources, the parents may keep a couple of things, to remember their toddler’s first online shopping spree!
