6-year-old Kaitlin from Utah was excited when her parents gave her a reward of a Barbie doll from Amazon due to finishing her chores.

However, when she went out on the street to pick up her Amazon package the next day, her parents realized something was wrong.

According to Buzzfeed, Kaitlin secretly ordered nearly $350 worth of toys and games from the online retailer while her mom stepped away from her phone. Kaitlin’s cousin, Ria Diyaolu, said that when Kaitlin’s mom went to check her account, she found three pages of ordered items.

“I was so surprised that a 6-year-old knew how to do one-click, next-day shipping,” Diyaolu told Buzzfeed.

“All our family came home and the truck pulls up, and all of these boxes are getting pulled out of the truck,” said the 6-year-old’s mother Catherine Lunt during an interview with Good Morning America.

The little girl was next to her and added joyfully, “I love Amazon!”

Kaitlin’s parents decided not to return all the toys or get a refund. Instead, they made use of the teachable opportunity and donated the toys and board games to a local children’s hospital in Salt Lake City.

“Kaitlin chose to donate all of the toys to the Children’s Hospital where she stayed for a week when she was a baby! She wanted to give a little joy to those who aren’t well,” her cousin Diyaolu wrote in another tweet.

However, Kaitlin was banned from using the internet for a month as a punishment.
