A very tech-savvy toddler in Portland managed to purchase a car on her father's smartphone.

Paul Stoute got an email from eBay saying he had won the bidding for a 1962 Austin-Healey Sprite. Fortunately, it only cost $225. 

Stoute was looking at fixer uppers on eBay before he put his phone down to do something else. Before he knew it, his one-year-old daughter had purchased a car.

"Fortunately, she didn't buy the $38,000 Porsche," he said.

He was also lucky that the car was located in Tualatin. He is now storing it until he can work on it.

"It comes with two engines," Christina Stoute said. "They're both in the back seat."

While the eBay seller offered to contact other bidders who wanted the car, the family wants to keep it and fix it up. They might even give it to the girl for her 16th birthday.

Paul has now learned to keep his smartphone locked and away from the toddler.
