Mum Fuming After Her Kids Spend Hundreds On Toys Using Amazon Alexa
Well, one American mother found out the hard way when she received several parcels from the online marketplace, which she later found out her children had ordered through the retailer's home assistant.
Veronica Harvey, 26, thought the first parcel to arrive might have been from relatives, who usually post Christmas gifts for her two children; Aryss, six, and Cameron, four.
However, when a second and third parcel arrived at her Michigan home filled with Barbies, a Barbie Dreamhouse and a 48-pack of batteries, Veronica's confusion obviously grew.
Her daughter then ran into the room and called out to her younger brother that their toys from Amazon, which came close to $400 (£306), had arrived.
When Veronica questioned her children on how they ordered all of the items, they hilariously admitted they'd asked Alexa.
Veronica said: "My husband was leaving for work and received a package in the mail and brought it inside.
"When I looked in the box, it was a bunch of toys, so I assumed that it was from family because their grandmother lives in Texas, or maybe even my sister. However it had no name on it.
"Then I received another knock at the door and there was another package on the porch. And then another."
Adding: "My daughter came in and said, 'Cam, our toys that we ordered from Alexa are here'. I then said to her, 'you ordered all of this?', and with confidence she said 'yeah we just asked Alexa and she got it for us'.
"They ordered some LOL Surprise toys, a Barbie Dreamhouse, PJ Masks toys, a pack of 48 batteries, and some Barbie dolls.
"The cost was close to 400 dollars. They actually got some things on sale and Amazon was able to stop the other purchase before it was shipped," she continued.
Fortunately for the mother-of-two, Amazon is offering her a full refund and Veronica is planning on donating the toys.
