A 6-year-old girl from Utah bought herself $350 worth of board games, video games and other toys from Amazon Prime after her mom left the online account unattended.

Caitlin, who was identified only by her first name, used one-click, next-day shipping to order herself all the merchandise, BuzzFeed News reported Monday.

She was originally allowed to purchase one Barbie doll from Amazon for her upcoming birthday. However, she later asked her mom if she could go back into the account to see what day her present was expected to arrive.

“She knew exactly what she was doing when she did it,” Caitlin’s older cousin Ria Diyaolu told BuzzFeed. “I was so surprised that a 6-year-old knew how to do one-click, next-day shipping.”

The next day, a delivery truck pulled up with the presents. (RELATED: A 12-Year-Old Stole His Mom’s Credit Card For Bali Trip, Checked Into Flight And Hotel By Himself)

“They just started unloading box after box after box,” said Diyaolu.

“This is a picture of how everyone found out,” Diyaolu wrote on Twitter Saturday

Caitlin’s mom then checked her Amazon account and discovered that her daughter ordered three pages worth of presents.

Caitlin did not get grounded, but she lost internet access for a month. Her mother sent back all of her toys besides the Barbie doll, according to NPR.
