She may only be 6 years old, but Katelyn Lunt already knows the saying “Shop till you drop.”

The little girl, who hails from Pleasant Hills, Utah, got too excited as she made a massive purchase on the online shopping site Amazon. Her cousin Ria Diyaolu first shared what Katelyn did on Sunday.


“My bad*ss little cousin ordered $300 (or P16,020) worth of toys w/o my aunt & uncle knowing,” Diyalou tweeted. She then shared the snap of how everyone found out Katelyn’s purchase.

Her post has since gone viral, with over 26,500 retweets and almost 79,000 likes as of this writing.


Three days later, it turned out that Katelyn had a heart of gold at such a young age, and figured to donate all the toys to the Primary Children’s Hospital where she stayed as a baby. Diyaolu wrote: “She wanted to give a little joy to those who aren’t well.”


Katelyn’s mom, Catherine, first noticed what her daughter did when she checked some items online, but noticed the items she knew she did not order. “I canceled them because they hadn’t been shipped yet, and then I started looking and there was about 3 more pages of items,” Catherine told local media KSL.

She said that Katelyn ordered 10 Barbie dolls, plus other dolls and toys. The report stated that Catherine considered giving back the orders to the shopping site, but decided to donate it to the children’s hospital.

Katelyn, who is set to enter first grade this week, said, “I’m never telling them!” when asked if she would share what she did to her classmates.

And will Catherine allow Katelyn to be in Amazon again anytime soon? She was quoted in the report: “She’s not in too much trouble, but she will be in lots of trouble if it happens again.”  Katrina Hallare /ra
