Shock bill for video game ‘virtual food’

It’s great when today’s tech devices are so intuitive that they can be used just as easily – whether you’re six or 60.

But a grandad from Yorkshire had a nasty shock when his six-year-old grandson splashed out on virtual food when using his iPad to the popular children’s video game Tiny Monster Island.

And it was only when grandma’s credit card was declined at the supermarket, that the spending splurge came to light, according to reports. The little lad had splashed out £2,000 on in-game food and coins to help fight his way through levels in the game.

But there’s a happy ending. Apparently, the game store has agreed to refund the cash.
