• A 5-year-old girl used her mom's Amazon account to buy more than $3,000 worth of of toys.
  • Jessica Nunes said she thought her daughter was playing video games on her phone when she made the orders.
  • Nunes said she was able to cancel about half the order before it shipped.

A 5-year-old girl in Massachusets used her mother's Amazon account to buy more than $3,000 worth of toy motorcycles, toy jeeps, and cowgirl boots, her mother says.

Jessica Nunes told WJAR in Boston that she thought her daughter, Lila, was playing video games on her phone when she used it to make the purhcases during a drive home. Nunes said she was surprised when she recieved an email on March 27 that said her package had shipped, according to the station.

"I go on my Amazon order history to find that I, or somebody, had ordered 10 motorcycles, a Jeep, and 10 pairs of cowgirl boots women's size seven," Nunes according to the outlet.

Nunes estimated that the motorcycles and the toy Jeep came out to $3,180, while the boots totalled $600, WJAR reported.

According to WJAR, Nunes says she was able to cancel the boots order and half of the motorcycle orders, but she didn't catch the order fast enough to stop five motorcycles and one children's Jeep that had already shipped.

The motorcycles were originally nonrefundable through Amazon, but Nunes said she reached out to the company and was able to return the products, according to WCVB.

"(The kid's motorcycles) were actually nonreturnable, originally, but I had reached out to Amazon at 2 o'clock in the morning and I was like: 'Please, is there anything we can do?!'" Nunes said according to the outlet.

Nunes told WJAR that she plans to use the experience as a teaching moment for her daughter rather than punish her.

"I did tell her that maybe if she you know, acts right, she behaves and she does chores around the house that we can get her a bike that's more geared towards her age range," Nunes said.

When asked why she ordered the motorcycles, Lila Nunes said, "because I wanted one," WJAR reported.
