Toddler Accidentally Buys Car on eBay With Smartphone

Toddler eBay Car
CBS News

Here’s more evidence for the ever-growing argument that you shouldn’t let tiny children play with smartphones. You might wind up with something worse than mashed potatoes in your headphone jack. You could wind up with a used car from eBay.

Paul Stoute was letting his 14-month-old daughter Stella play with his iPhone. The next thing you know, they own a 1962 Austin Healey. Fortunately for the Stoute family, the car was only $225. And there’s a silver lining — the family plans to keep the car and have it restored for Stella’s 16th birthday, or possibly graduation.

We admire the fact that this guy is giving himself a solid 14 years to finish this project. He could up his level of admiration by putting a passcode or lock on his phone.
