When 3-year old Pipi Quinlan from New Zealand saw a picture of one on the auction website Trade Me she decided she had to have it, or so the story goes.

According to Australian newspaper The Age, towheaded Pipi upped the ante on a Kobelco industrial digger, paying $12,000 for the "toy." She was able to navigate her way to the prize since her Mom was logged on to the site.
