Caitlin was turning six so her mom let her order a Barbie doll. Caitlin later got back on Amazon and ordered $350 in more toys with next day shipping. Her mom sent everything back but the Barbie.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. Caitlin in Utah was turning 6. And what a treat - Mom let Caitlin use her Amazon account to order a Barbie doll. Caitlin asked if she could jump back on Amazon - you know, just to check on her order. She did not mention that she was also going to order $350 more in toys - oh, with next-day shipping. According to BuzzFeed, Mom sent it all back. Caitlin is banned from the Internet now for a month. She did get to keep that Barbie doll. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
