Toddler orders almost $2,000 worth of furniture on mom's phone
A toddler managed to order almost $2,000 (£1,500) worth of furniture from Walmart while playing with his mother’s phone.
New Jersey mom Madhu Kumar was left scratching her head when packages began turning up at the family’s home.
After her husband and older children denied being the culprit, all signs pointed towards the toddler of the family.
22-month-old Ayaansh bought accent chairs, flower stands, and other household items that his mom had been considering on the online store.
According to NBC New York, Madhu had created a cart of things she wanted to consider later, but it seemed Ayaansh had different ideas after he was able to check out using her saved information.

Born in April 2020, Ayaansh is well used to seeing his parents and two older siblings use phones and laptops so it’s no surprise the tot is already a tech whizz.
"Moving forward, we will put tough passcodes or face recognition so when he picks up the phone he finds it in locked condition,” his dad Pramod said.
With boxes still appearing, the parents are waiting until they’ve all arrived before taking them back to their local Walmart.
