Uh-oh': Toddler Playing With Parent's Smartphone Buys Multiple $100 Apps

"You kind of feel suckered a little bit."

Parents often let their young children play with their smartphones to pacify and entertain them. But this story from one couple may give parents reason to pay a little more attention as to what those little fingers are pushing.

The Associated Press reports that one 20-month-old's random finger tapping on the phone almost cost her parents nearly $200. Watch the report:

The little girl from Oklahoma only purchased two apps, but they cost nearly $100 each, which seems expensive for apps. As AP reports, the parents of London Hall didn't know the apps were bought until they got their bill and their jaws dropped. The charges were removed as a one-time courtesy.

The Hall family has since required that passwords be used to purchase apps on the phone as a preventative measure.
