  • Girl accidentally bids on digger
  • Mother finds out after bid wins
  • Website staff cancels sale

A TODDLER with a love of toy tractors and earthmovers bought herself the ultimate treat - a $15,600 piece of heavy machinery.

While her parents were sleeping, three-year-old New Zealand girl Pipi Quinlan managed to log onto the family computer and accessed an online auction site.

Pipi then submitted a bid of on one of the items on the website - a massive Kobelco digger.

She won the auction.

When her mother, Sarah Quinlan, woke up and logged onto the computer, she thought the successful bid was for some Lego she wanted to buy.

But then she saw the price of the "Lego".

"It wasn't until I went back and re-read the emails that I saw $NZ20,000, and got the shock of my life," Ms Quinlan told the Times.

"I called my husband Reid over to make sure I wasn't seeing things.

"I asked him what a Kobelco was and he said 'I think it's an earthmoving digger'."

She called the website and told staff that her daughter had accidentally made the bid.

The website cancelled the sale and refunded the seller's listing costs.
