Tip for parents: consider password-protecting your phone...

While the iPhone's Touch ID - which uses the owner's thumb print to unlock the device - may foil a thief, it is susceptible to mischievous little ones. 

According to The Wall Street Journal, a six-year-old girl in Arkansas placed her sleeping mother's thumb on the iPhone, then ordered $250 worth of Pokémon merchandise on Amazon.

After her mother fell asleep on the couch, Ashlynd Howell, 6, took matters into her own hands -- or rather her mother's hand -- to go on a shopping spree. 

Her parents initially thought their Amazon account was hacked after receiving 13 order confirmation emails, but then figured Ashlynd made the purchases unintentionally.

"No, Mommy, I was shopping," Bethany Howell, Ashlynd's mother, said her daughter told her. "But don't worry -- everything that I ordered is coming straight to the house."

Ashlynd was able to keep the Pokémon merchandise as Christmas gifts.
