Some folks I know just bought one of those little electric Kiddy Cars for their young son. These four pages are the entire assembly and operating instructions. Needless to say, it was not made in England!

Good luck! (You'll need it.....)

Kiddy Car instructions, #1

Kiddy Car instructions, #2

Kiddy Car instructions, #3

Kiddy Car instructions, #4

Paul, this makes my brain hurt

This must be the same feeling that a DIY'er has when he/she opens a copy of a Code book.

Maybe the translator should consider another career.

Looks like they were written by the same people who made those new VW ads... Vah Vol!

I thought I had problems with Italian light fixures. If they even come with any, I find it easier to read them in an accent of thier native land.... Cio.

It would be interesting to see what this translator could do to a set of stereo installation instructions:

"endeavor to attempt that the red rightness is red and the black rightness is black, unless without you will risk crossing with electrical circuit shortness of it."

Pardon...?

It sounds like they ran it through one of the on-line translation programs.

Stunning. Absolutely stunning!!!!!!!

Next time I run into a DIYer maybe I can write up some installation instructions like that and then disconnect the phone.

Amazing Paul,
From the 2nd page under "Safety usage announcements":
"must be the direct in adult descend to use this car. Do not want to be in the street, highway,Pond,dangerous situation In etc."
And "cant flush the car with the water, can wipe with the cloth clean."

Unreal,
From these instructions, I wonder just how many of these cars were actually assembled correctly, if at all?.
