I have to say something like this happened to my son Andrew and his Wife with their 4-year-old darling and very smart 4-year-old Victoria. Who, at the ripe old age of 4 decided to get her moms phone and order a bunch of stuff off of Amazon.

Returning stuff from Amazon is pretty easy.  So these parents deserve some credit.  They definitely didn't HAVE to do this.

A  story ran on  Mashable / Buzzfeed showing how smart kids are with technology and taking the initiative to get what they want.

A six-year-old girl in Utah named Caitlin Diyaolu recently asked her mom if she could go on Amazon to track a package a Barbie doll she was getting for her birthday. Sounds great right?

While her mom wasn't looking, she ordered over $300 worth of additional toys, video games, and board games.  And she even added on one-day shipping, such a smart little cookie wanted the good as fast as she could get them.

Her mom didn't know about it until the boxes showed up the next day.

Caitlin's older cousin says she knew exactly what she was doing.  And she hasn't been grounded, but she's not allowed to use the Internet for a month.  Which if you think about it is like the 2018 version of being grounded.

The really wonderful part of this story is that instead of sending everything back for a refund, her parents are donating the toys to a children's hospital where Caitlin stayed for a week as a baby.

So all the toys are going to sick kids.  But they are letting her keep the original Barbie doll they ordered.
