Boy, 3, buys car

English boy accidently submits online bid for Barbie pink Nissan Figaro

LONDON (AP) - Three-year-old Jack Neal loves cars so much that while his mother's back was turned, he bought a Barbie-pink Nissan Figaro for nearly C$18,000 on eBay.

"I had just come off the computer and I thought I had logged off, I came out of eBay," his mother Rachel told the British Broadcasting Corp. on Monday.

"Jack jumped on the chair, (went) straight in, found the page and bought the car." Unable to read, the youngster likely used the "buy it now" option to make the purchase.

The first time the Neals, from Sleaford in eastern England, knew of the sale was when they received an e-mail from auto dealer David Jones, who thought he had made his first Internet sale.

Jones, from Worcestershire in central England, saw the funny side and said he will not hold the Neals to their purchase. The car will be re-listed later.

"I've got a 2-year-old son myself and I don't think he would be able to do this, although he's bright," he said.

Jack denied all culpability. Asked if he had made the purchase, he simply squirmed and muttered, "No."

I saw that on Fox this morning. I bet Mom is a little embarrassed. She said she thinks he was playing with the mouse and accidentally clicked the Buy Now icon. Sounds like something my kids would have done.

{LOL} Embarrassed is right. Imagine if she would have had to pay for that car. :D
