Toddler empties mom’s online shopping cart and orders $2,000 worth of items from Walmart

A New Jersey woman was browsing furniture on Walmart’s website and adding items to her cart, but she hadn’t purchased any yet. So when package after package started arriving at her doorstep, she was so confused.

The woman, Madhu Kumar, said she asked her husband and two older children if they bought the items, but they said it was not them. That left Kumar’s almost 2-year-old son Ayaansh as the sole culprit, NBC New York reported.

Ayaansh, who is probably still learning to count, was playing on his mother’s phone when he ordered the items, totaling nearly $2,000.

“It’s really hard to believe he did that, but that’s what happened,” his father, Pramod Kumar, told the station.

The family have been receiving parcels at their home in Monmouth Junction for a week. Items include side chairs and planters that Madhu Kumar was eyeing.

“He’s so small, he’s so cute, we laughed that he ordered the whole thing,” she said.

Walmart did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Saturday.

The family said they plan to keep some of the packages and return others so they can get a refund.

Pramod Kumar said the family learned a valuable lesson: locking their cellphones.

“Going forward, we will implement hard passcodes or facial recognition so that when he picks up the phone, he finds it in a locked state,” he told NBC New York.
