(KTVI) - A toddler in Portland, OR accidentally bought a car. The 14-month-old was playing with her father's smartphone when she accidentally started the eBay app and made a purchase.

She bought this 1962 "Austin Healey Sprite"  for just over $200.  Her dad didn't realize she had bought the Roadster until he received an email congratulating him on his purchase.

Mom and dad decided to keep the car and hope to restore it and give it to her daughter on her 16th birthday.
