Kiwi toddler wins $1 million dollars

A CHRISTCHURCH toddler has become the youngest Bonus Bonds winner.

The three-year-old had recently returned home from holiday with his family when Bonus Bonds called to announce the boy had won $1 million.

"My husband was literally pumping the air when he was on the phone," the boy's mother told Fairfax.

"As soon as he got off and told me, we were running around, so thrilled. It was definitely a jump up and down moment.

"We always thought our boy was really special, he was born on Christmas Day, which is quite unique. And now he's the youngest Bonus Bonds winner to date," she said.

The couple had set up their son's Bonus Bonds account when he was born. The account had $250 worth of bonds purchased for him.

The oldest Bonus Bonds million-dollar winner is 92 years old.
