It's all fun and much-needed peace when you hand your kid your phone ... until they order themselves $3,300 of character iceblocks.

It's a lesson mum Jennifer Bryant has learnt the hard way, after her son Noah, four, ordered a whopping 51 cases of SpongeBob SquarePants iceblocks after finding his way to her Amazon account.

What's better is he didn't ship them home - instead having them delivered to his aunt's house. 

In total, the expensive order included 918 individually wrapped iceblocks, costing Bryant a cool $3365. And being a perishable item, she was unable to return them. 

Unfortunately for the little boy's mum, as a full time student and mum of three, she 'simply cannot afford this', according to her friend and fellow New York University student Katie Schloss, who set up a fundraising page following the misadventure. 

The page has so far raised almost four times the cost of the iceblocks, with Bryant saying she had been overwhelmed by people's generosity.

"Thanks you SO much for your mind-blowing generosity and support. We're so grateful to have made back the $3365 in a mere 24 hours!," she wrote.

"As a parent to a child living with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) all additional donations will go towards Noah's education and additional supports. We cannot thank you enough. Truly."

Many on Schloss's Instagram shared how they were moved to donate following the 'adorable' mishap. 

"This story made my day! Donated and will spread the word!," said one. "Oh my gosh. This is too cute. I will definitely be donating," added another.

"This is the cutest story ever. Shared! Hopefully he has a long and hot summer to spend eating those popsicles!," agreed a third.
