Siri, Alexa and Ok Google - how these have made our lives easy. More than us, kids are getting more adapted and dependent on these assistants. The tech-friendly kids seem to learn faster and know technology better than we do.

Kids use Alexa and order Rs.47,000 worth toys on Amazon

However, letting kids near technology is not always cute. Just like this mom, who discovered that her kids have bought toys worth Rs.47,000 ($7000).

Veronica Estell from USA got the shock of her life when she learnt that her kids used her credit card to order toys on Amazon using Alexa.

“My husband was leaving out 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” she told Daily Mail.

When asked upon whether they ordered it, “yeah we just asked Alexa and she got it for us,” the kids told her, she says.

“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. They actually got some things on sale and Amazon was able to stop the other purchase before it was shipped,” she added.
