Mischievous girl, nine, uses mum’s Amazon Alexa to discover her birthday presents
A MISCHIEVOUS girl used her mum’s Amazon Alexa to discover her birthday presents.
Bella Florian was told she must wait after pestering mum Kirsty about gifts for her ninth on May 1.
Instead the cheeky youngster simply asked the virtual assistant about recent purchases.
Shocked Kirsty said: “I was tucking Bella into bed when she said, ‘Mummy, why have you bought me a night light?’
“I tried to bluff, saying ‘What do you mean?’ I was mortified. I’d ordered the presents and they were getting delivered that day.
“Alexa lights up a different colour if there’s a notification, but I was oblivious to that.
"Bella told me she’d seen the notification light and asked Alexa what they were.
"Alexa stitched me up. I thought I can’t deny it if she’s heard it with her own ears.
“Once she knew it was the Rubik’s Cube she’d asked for, she wasn’t going to stop. It was like she teamed up with Alexa in a way. So sneaky.
“I admit I didn’t really know how my Alexa worked, but I’ve learned my lesson now.”
Bella found out last weekend she is getting a £5.98 speed cube, a £26.49 starry-night projector and £19.99 earrings.
Caterer Kirsty, of Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, will not return the gifts, but will buy a new surprise.
Amazon said customers can switch off the notifications setting on the app.
