Be careful letting your children play with your mobile phone, you might accidentally end up with a car you don’t want or need.
A Portland father got the shock of his life after discovering his one-year-old daughter had bought him a car on eBay.
Paul Stoute told KPTV that he received a notice from eBay congratulating him on his purchase of a 1962 Austin Healey Sprite for $225.
Stoute said he had been looking at cars on eBay with the intention of fixing one up with a friend.
He says his daughter Sorella must have picked up his phone to play with it and ended up buying a car.
“Tap, tap, tap and now I own a car,” he said.
“Fortunately, she didn’t buy the $38,000 Porsche,” he said.
But all’s well that ends well, Paul and his wife Christina said that they’re going to turn Sorella’s mistake into the best present ever.
Stoute says he plans on keeping the car – which was listed as a “fixer upper” – and fix it up in time for her 16th birthday or graduation.
