    Toddler buys earthmover in online auction

    WELLINGTON, New Zealand – A New Zealand mom made some online bids on toys before napping. Then her 3-year-old daughter took over and bought a bigger plaything than expected — a huge earth-moving digger for a cool $12,300.

    Pipi Quinlan made the winning 20,000 New Zealand dollar ($12,300) bid on the Kobelco digger with a few mouse clicks at the auction site TradeMe while her parents slept, the Rodney Times newspaper reported in northern New Zealand.........

    I can believe it.
    Both of my kids have been going online since they were 3.
    Sites like Fisher Price, NickJr, Disney, PBS Kids, etc.
    They all have good content for young kids.

    Heck, my kindergartner has computer lab at least once a week.
