A little boy in Florida decided to treat himself to a few early Christmas presents and used his grandfather’s Amazon account to buy $500 worth of toys.
Jacob, six, was playing with his mother’s iPad when he got a little bored and decided to take a look at the apps she had installed. When he opened the Amazon app a bright yellow power wheels car caught his attention.
The crafty kid purchased the vehicle, along with a race track for his hot wheels cars.

‘That’s the only power wheels I can find on Amazon,’ Jacob told Fox 4.
The cost of his impromptu shopping spree was $475. Satisfied with his purchases, Jacob had the toys sent to his grandfather’s restaurant, Teriyaki Madness, in Cape Coral.
‘One day a big package came, it was this car and couldn’t imagine where it came from,’ Jacob’s grandfather Frank Guiliano told the outlet.
Guiliano said he thought his wife ordered the toys as a Christmas present for Jacob, but found it odd that she would have the packages sent to his restaurant.
When he learned his grandson was behind the pricey purchases, Guiliano was shocked – but impressed.
The packages were delivered to a Cape Coral restaurant owned by Jacob’s grandfather, Frank Guiliano
Frank Guiliano’s restaurant Teriyaki Madness in Cape Coral will hold a raffle to give away the toy car and race track
‘He’s really kind of smart. We’re actually kind of proud of him a little bit,’ Guiliano said. ‘At the same time he can’t have the car, you have to work for it.’
Guiliano said he will be holding a free raffle at his restaurant to give away the toy car and race track.
Customers can put their names into the raffle until December 17, and Jacob will pick the winners.

First place will get the car, and the second place runner-up will walk away with the race track.
‘We had to sit him down. The look on his face was priceless when he found out he wasn’t getting the car,’ Guiliano told Fox 4.
‘He’s the one who is going to pull the name out of the bucket. It’s going to make another kid happy and he learns a lesson not to do it anymore.’
Jacob said he isn’t upset about having to give the toys away, but next time will buy his family something first.
