The Kumars say that moving forward, they will be removing their credit card information from their phones and adding passcodes.

Sounds like they've learned a few things. How about not letting the kid play with your phone?

Phones are the modern equivalent of parking the kid in front of TV so you can get other stuff done. Some people just don't realize how much damage a toddler with a phone is since they just think of it as a toy for videos and games.

"Got any games on your phone, Mister?"

No, it's a work phone. Don't touch it.

And that's how phones end up in toilets, kitty litter boxes, etc.

Wow, that was pretty bigoted. Bad Michael. No rice for you today.

I have my kids my phone a few times when they were that age, but I switched on a kids mode when I did that disabled all web browsing and purchasing ability.

Sounds like they already had been "window shopping" and had stuff in carts. They just hadn't pulled the trigger to purchase and/or removed said items from the carts. So the kid managed to hit the BUY NOW button and BOOM.

So another lesson is don't put stuff in your cart unless you're buying it right then and there.

Mother Madhu, who admits to being a frequent shopper, says all her payment information is already loaded onto her phone. She was still in the process of picking and choosing which pieces of furniture she was ultimately going to buy, never intending to keep all the pieces she added to the online shopping cart.

So she had $1,700 in her cart, one click from buying when she gave her kid the phone? Yeah, that is dumb.

Even where I have my credit card info saved, I have to enter the three digit code to complete a purpose.

The lesson here is:  Don't have kids.

If Walmart can deliver items between the time a kid hits "Checkout" and when a parent finds the kid with phone still in hand, maybe it's time to start ordering from them instead of Amazon.

What, honey? $300 worth of charges to chunkyasses.com? I, ah, I...you know what? I'll bet the baby got my phone...

Way back in '93, I awoke one morning to the sound of strange beeps and boops. I went downstairs and found our then-18 month old son at the computer. He had turned it on, launched Reader Rabbit, and had started a train game. No touch screens in those days, he had to have used the mouse to click on the right icons.

Probably a good thing we didn't have an internet connection yet.

"What the... More boxes of hardcore porn movies and magazines?"

"Uhhh... The baby ordered it. By accident. He was teething on my phone and must have ordered all this porn."

"Oh really? Because he ordered from several different sites, and he seems to have a very specific preference for girls in crotchless superhero costumes doing unspeakable things with donkeys."

"C'mon, he's just a baby! Don't kink-shame him!"

They do know that they could give the kid a old phone or a tablet

FTFA: The family reached out to Walmart and explained what happened. Walmart will refund them for the pieces they return.

Oh thank goodness, I don't think stores would ordinarily allow people to return stuff they've recently purchased. Truly riveting stuff here.

How's this for their next news story? I had my groceries delivered from Walmart yesterday, and they accidentally got the popsicles with sugar in them instead of the sugar-free ones. Walmart refunded my 3 dollars and didn't even make me go back to the store to give them back! WOW

Seriously.  Did the family see the charges and immediately call the news?  And the news actually ran with it.
Later she says she thinks the kid needs a phone.... no the kid needs toys and maybe an iPad with some educational games
Had this happen to me nobody would ever know because I would not call the news and would simply return the items minus the one I actually wanted.
They should have to pay shipping and restocking for being stupid

I've sometimes gotten "Hey we see you put stuff in your cart but didn't check out, here's a discount code to encourage you to complete your transaction" type emails...

It is also the best way to track multiple items you are considering on most sites. I do it all the time as it is easy.

Meh. My kid ordered $90 in ESPN in like two seconds. I forgot the jerks required a credit card to set the thing up.

This reeks of male bovine excrement. There is no possible way a 22-month-old kid is going to make so many purchases.

I recall, years ago, someone had made an extravagant purchase on Ebay, but tried to blame it on their child hitting the "Buy It Now" button. What they failed to mention (if you're foolish enough to trust your computer/smart phone with storing all your personal information) was the "Confirm Buy-It-Now" step involved that prevents instant purchases.

Bull. Farking. Shiat.
