It's the amazon order that's gone viral when a kid made the most of one of those new voice activated home assistants.

Alexa promises to make life a little easier.

You just tell it to order things on Amazon, and so it does.

For 6-year-old Brooke Neitzel, the gadget made dollhouse dreams a reality.

Just like that, 4 pounds of sugar cookies and a $170 dollhouse arrived at her Texas mom's doorstep.

Megan Neitzel said, "Can you play dollhouse with me and get me a dollhouse? She immediately said Alexa, I love you. I said of course you do!"

The Neitzels say they see this as a teachable moment.

They have now activated parental controls on their Alexa.

As well, Amazon says any "accidental" orders can be returned for free.
