Toddler Buys Car on eBay With Dad’s Smartphone

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTLA) — A 14-month-old girl inadvertently bought a car on eBay using her father’s smart phone.


Sorella Stoute buys 1962 Austin Healey Sprite on eBay.

Sorella Stoute’s father got the news when he received notice from eBay, congratulating him on his purchase of a gently used, 1962 Austin Healey Sprite, for just over $200.

“She decided I think to open the eBay app, and started clicking around and one thing led to another and now we own a car,” Paul Stoute said.

The couple decided to keep the car. Sorella’s dad planned to restore it as a gift to Sorella on her 16th birthday.

“I’m just glad she didn’t buy the $38,000 Porsche I was also looking at,” Stoute said.
