In Train Engrish

In Train Engrish

Look out for those variations.

I got the family a few of these train sets from Woot! this Chrismas, as a Christmas Eve gift. We had a lot of fun with the trains, but almost as much fun with the copy on the boxes.

It was obviously created by non-native English speakers, and if you know me, you know I love twisted language like this.

So check out this Flickr set, with comments, to experience the train of thought behind the marketing on a box of toys.

I want to be making true styles! I've heard it is a good day pastime.

Isn't that box great? I gave one set as a gift but asked to keep the box. Too, too funny!
