Reporter: Like a lot of kids, 14-month-old sorella stoute loves playing with her dad's cell phone. After all, what toddler doesn't love to push buttons? Harmless enough -- or so everyone thought. Until dad got this e-mail that made his stomach sink. I didn't realize anything took place until I got an e-mail from ebay saying congratulations. Reporter: Little sorella, who can't even say the word car, bought one. This 1962 austin healey sprite. Which she unwittingly bid on, through an ebay app, while playing with her dad's phone. Initial thoughts were panic. We're like, how do we get out of this? Reporter: The modern family can relate. World news viewers on facebook shared all kinds of stories -- toddler shoppers gone wild. "My son, 3 at the time, bought a ford ranger off ebay." They got out of it. The nine-year-old who bought 120 movies on ebay. This five-year-old racked up $2,500 worth of downloads on his parents' ipad. I just clicked on it because it said it was free and then the next day it costed the money.
