Toddler Buys Car On eBay with Smartphone

Like a lot of kids in these tech-centric days, 14-month-old Sorella Stoute enjoyed free rein with her father’s smartphone — until he got an email from eBay congratulating him on his recent purchase of a 1962 Austin-Healey Sprite and requesting payment.
The car was sold to Sorella for $225. "Fortunately, she didn't buy the $38,000 Porsche," he said.
Given its low price and humorous origins, the family decided to keep the car and have it fixed up before Sorella's 16th birthday.
Sorella's dad has also added password protection to his phone.
