Pixie Curtis, daughter of PR guru Roxy Jacenko, has been gifted a brand new Mercedes Benz valued at just over $250,000 by her mum. The 9-year-old isn’t old enough to drive it, but is excited about the new 7-seater.
While her age hasn’t quite yet reached double digits, Pixie Curtis is already a successful businesswoman with her Pixie’s Bows and now her fidget business she launched earlier this year. So how does one celebrate that success? Not with ice creams and a pizza dinner, but with a brand new luxury car.
Pixie Curtis shared on her Instagram, “This was such a surprise !! Mum told us to come to the front of the house – we thought there was a trampoline delivery – it was a new car ????!!!!!!! We told her we needed 7 seats we didn’t think she would actually organise it!!”

“Then there’s back BACK sets in the boot so like if we have friends we can put those seats up,” Pixie shared excitedly.
She then shared a tour of the outside of the car, slipping, “There’s mum in her car, I mean my car!”
One follower, @coffee_and_v wasn’t as excited as the 9-year-old commenting, “If this isn’t insensitive and tone-deaf, I don’t know what is.”
Another commented, “All I’m saying is I hope I’m around when Pixie turns 16 to see what she’s up to …… I sincerely hope she’s a polite and humble human and not the opposite if this sort of stuff is happening at the age of 9.”
Many other commenters were excited for Pixie and her new car, sharing the congrats and wishing her well.
What’s the best gift you received as a kid? Do you think a car is appropriate for a 9-year-old?
