This six-year-old somehow managed to blow over $400 (Australian) on toys on Amazon.

Caitlin was given permission by her mum to order a Barbie online for her birthday. But unbeknownst to her mum, when Caitlin asked to jump back online to check when the delivery would take place, she had much more ambitious plans in mind.

Caitlin’s family were in shock when the Amazon delivery man pulled up and began unloading an endless supply of purchases.

The birthday girl’s cousin Ria Diyaolu was on hand to catch mum’s surprise – and Caitlin’s immense glee.

“They just started unloading box after box after box,” Ria told BuzzFeed News.

“Her mom went on her Amazon account and saw three pages of things she had ordered.”

Ria claims her little cousin knew exactly what she was doing.

She said the six-year-old was quickly forced to send everything (bar her Barbie) back and banned from using the internet for a month.

  • For a start….its about teaching children responsibility.
    You do not give your card to anyone else. It is for you to use only and this is something you teach children by not allowing them to use your card.
    In this situation where the Mum made the foolish mistake of giving her card to the child she really should have had everything including the barbie returned. The child needs to learn that using someone elses card to purchase things they have not given their permission to you to order is stealing.


  • Why would you allow a child to access Amazon or any site at all unless you were sitting with them and supervising??? I would ban the child from using the computer at all, including YouTube. I doubt she would stay on the original page when you walked away.


  • How did she get the details to spend that much money? I would have made her send everything back including the barbie. That would have taught her a lesson.


  • Wow! I’d kill her! That being said, what parent would allow a 6yr old to get online to make a purchase anyway?


  • Um, I found this funny really because… how does a 6 year old get to or know how to do this? I have many friends who let their kids add things to their basket on line, where the credit details are already saved. Not something I would ever allow, but I know a few that do.


  • oh come on. Who would let a six year old on line to shop. You would do it for them because God knows what they would get up to. Only a silly person would allow that.


  • Why would you let a six year old shop online?


  • Oh my goodness, that must have been a shocker ! Yep, my six your old would be banned for more then a month too !!


  • OMG! I would have banned mine for more than a month..lol


  • Omg! I need to note to self for future reference. Kids are too tech savvy these days


  • Oh my! Unbelievable that the mother didn’t find out before about the credit card’s charges.


  • Oh this is a little funny but oh so naughty.
