NJ toddler buys over $1,700 worth of merchandise online at Walmart
A toddler certainly knows how to shop.
Little Ayaansh Kumar from New Jersey is only 22 months old, but he already knows how to handle a cell phone and, even more hilariously, provide his family with more furniture than they’ll ever need.
On her mother’s device, the little one started clicking recently, ordering more than $1,700 worth of furniture from an online shopping cart she started on her Walmart account.
He had found the cart icon – and soon a series of packages began arriving at the family home in Middlesex County, New Jersey.
The family officially has no more room for all the boxes that are coming in, the parents told Fox News Digital on Saturday afternoon in a phone interview.
Father-of-three Pramod Kumar told Fox News Digital: “It surprised us because we never thought he would be placing so many orders. We’ve been getting packages all week now and we’re running out of space. in our home. Today we received two more big packages.”

Mom Madhu Kumar told Fox News Digital in the same phone interview, “We have 10 to 12 big, big packages here now.”
Papa Pramod Kumar added: “They are booster chairs in really big packages. I can’t even lift some of them.”
He added: “We had put the items in an online shopping cart for our review later, to review these items and see if we really wanted them or not. My wife thought she would come back and check them later, to see what she wanted. or not.”
Mum Madhu said, “Actually, we only needed 2-4 chairs, but, you know, there were so many items in the shopping cart online, and our son went there and clicked “ order” for each of them. So he bought 10. -12 chairs.”
She continued, “He placed all the orders and I didn’t see my email until a few days later. Soon the packages started arriving.”
The amused dad added, “My wife was like, ‘Did you order something without telling me?'”
The family are hoping to get a refund from Walmart when they try to return some items.
“Initially, we thought we’d give it all back,” dad Pramod told Fox News Digital. “But now, after this news has made so many people laugh and smile – and especially during this bad time of COVID, and all these other things that are going on – we’re just really happy that it makes people laugh.”
He added: “So we want to keep some of the items our son ordered as a keepsake.”
Born in April 2020, the youngest Kumar has seen his parents and two older siblings do so much on their phones and gadgets during this pandemic time over the past 22 months. And it’s clear that he’s got some details pretty well under control.

Papa Pramod Kumar also told Fox News Digital, “We don’t know if we can return most items as they are ‘shipped and sold’ by Walmart’s third-party vendors. But we intend to return some. most, while keeping a couple as a memory.”
He added, “We’re still figuring that out. Walmart has a good return policy, so we’re hopeful.”

When asked if any of his older children had ever done something like this, Pramod Kumar replied, “No, it’s the first incident for us. Maybe it’s because our older little one is a COVID baby. He’s seen so much of the world of virtual gadgets since he was born.”
