Little Ashlynd Howell waited for her mom Bethany to nod off while watching a movie together before embarking upon her crafty scheme. Using her mom’s thumbprint to unlock her phone, she opened the Amazon app and proceeded to buy herself 13 different Pokémon toys. When Bethany saw the order notifications the next day, she thought she’d been hacked until she asked her daughter if she knew anything about it. “Yeah mommy, I was shopping!” said Ashlynd according to the Daily Mail. Her mom was only allowed to return four of the items, but Ashlynd still ended up getting way more for Christmas than Santa intended! (h/t)
