Warning: this is a rotary candle holder


Unpack, assemble and light. It’s so simple that I think I might have been able to it without the instruction. If it hadn't been for all the warnings.

Every second package in the presents game was from the Tiger shop.
Things! It’s funny, and cheap. But most of it, I’m afraid, I would never have bought to myself. On the other side of the world people have been busy, the things are produced, carried to here. And after a brief toying, the thing is forgotten. Honestly. I know that they don’t know on the other side how we treat the things (can they guess?), but it really isn’t a meaningful work.
Well then, and Tiger actually did some work trying to qualify the goods. For the rotary candle holder for instance, a booklet was enclosed - instructions in five languages: Unpack, assemble and light. It’s so simple that I think I might have been able to it without the instruction. If it hadn't been for all the warnings.

Instructions for the candle holder

AS WRITTEN IN THE BOOKLET:
Instruction
  1. Carefully unpack all the parts
  2. Assemble the candle holder
  3. Light the tea light and the top will spin automatically
Warning
  1. If the top will not spin:
    - Check that the pin is inserted corectly
    - Check that the top is sitting correctly on the pin
  2. The candle holder should not be placed in a draught
  3. Do not touch the metal parts when the light is lit – they can become very hot
  4. Wait until the metal parts have cooled down, after blowing out the tea light, before touching
  5. Stand the candle holder on a fireproof surface
  6. Place tha candle hlder out of reach of children

This little fellow came from Tiger as well. Next morning he was on the shelf with forgotten items. Oh dear.
