A four-year-old New York boy has left his family with a huge bill after he secretly ordered a staggering $2,618 worth of SpongeBob popsicles from online retailer Amazon.

Noah Bryant, from Brooklyn, ordered 51 cases containing a total of 918 popsicles to be shipped to his aunt’s house, the local TV station ABC7 reported.

Amazon said they would not take back the treats, leaving Noah’s mother, social work student Jennifer Bryant, facing the giant bill.

But the story has a happy ending. Amazon now says they are in contact with the Bryant family and will donate the proceeds of the popsicles to a local charity. Meanwhile, a GoFundMe page has raised more than $11,000.

The family says all additional funds will go towards Noah’s education, ABC7 said. Noah is on the autism spectrum.

“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,” Jennifer Bryant wrote on the GoFundMe page.
