Baby Buys a 1962 Austin-Healey Sprite

Offbeat

A toddler somehow manages to buy an old Austin-Healey online while playing with her dad's smartphone.

This is one of those stories you just can’t make up, and it's also rather cute. 14-month old Sorella Stoute was playing around on her father’s smartphone the other day and after a few screen taps she unknowingly ended up buying a 1962 Austin-Healey Sprite. What’s even funnier is that her father, Paul Stoute, had no idea that the purchase had happened. He finally found out when a confirmed email from eBay appeared in his inbox.

Fortunately, the car only ended up costing him $225, so he decided to keep it with the intended goal of restoring it by her 16th birthday or high school graduation. And yes, he has since added password protection to his phone to make sure she doesn't "accidentally" buy him a Ferrari.
