Call her a baby bidder. A 14-month old toddler in Portland, Oregon managed to buy a car.
It's a case of one of those smart phones gone wrong stories.
Sorella Stoute is an active little girl. She loves a super-solid, crash-tested smart phone.
And the car keys are pretty cool too.
Last month, it all added up when Dad received a notice from Ebay, congratulating him on his purchase – of a gently used, 1962 Austin Healey Sprite to the tune of two hundred dollars.
"She decided I think to open the eBay app, and started clicking around and one thing led to another and we own a car, hahah," father Paul Stoute said.
Sorella's on-line shopping spree certainly got a reaction out of mom and dad. "Panic, hahaha, initial panic, just what do we do. We can't really afford it kind of thing," he said.
In the end, the family decided to keep it.
She can steal your heart, she's so cute. It appears she got away with this stunt too. After all, how many 14-month olds can say they bought something online – let alone a classic roadster with a good set of tires?
Her father says he'd like to restore it. He hopes to have in tip-top shape sometime. Maybe give it to his daughter for her 16th birthday, or graduation.
"I've done a lot of body work in the past like Bondo and stuff like that but this is, another realm altogether, I'm just glad she didn't buy the 38,000 dollar Porsche I was also looking at," he said.
Since the car purchase, her father said he has activated facial recognition technology and has a new pin code, just in case she ever gets the shopping bug again.
