When experts suggest that mobile devices and gadgets should be locked or kept away from toddlers, they say it not just to protect the devices or the children.

These suggestions are made because a mobile device or any other internet-enabled device in the hands of a child can lead to a lot of irreversible things.

This case from New Jersey is a good example of why you should always lock your phone or keep it out of your children's reach.

Ayaansh Kumar, who is only 22-months-old, is still in his diapers. But the toddler has managed to order furniture worth $2,000 (Rs 1.4 lakh) online.

Well, he wasn't assigned the task by his parents. The accidental purchase happed whenAyaansh's mother, Madhu, had kept a whole lot of stuff in her shopping cart after browsing Walmart's website on her phone.

She had only intended to buy a few things for her new home. But thanks to her son, all the items in the cart were successfully checked out in one massive online purchase, according to reports.

"It is really hard to believe that he has done this, but that’s what happened," said Pramod Kumar, the father of Ayaansh.

The parents were taken by surprise when box after box of new furniture started being delivered to their address.

Some of the packages were so big that they didn't fit through the door. When the mother checked her Walmart account, she found out her son had ordered chairs, flower stands, and a whole lot of other things they didn't need.

"He’s so little, he’s so cute, we were laughing that he ordered all this stuff," said Madhu.

The screen-savvy child had been paying close attention to his parents and older siblings, who all use phones to browse things online, according to an NBC report.

Pramod said they will start using passcodes and facial recognition on their devices from here on.

"Moving forward, we will put tough passcodes or face recognition so when he picks up the phone he finds it in a locked condition," father Pramod was quoted as saying by NBC.
