Is a driving licence needed for this kind of car? Is it a toy car? Is it motorized?

Is it Anna's car? (she hasn't got a car, you say, but perhaps you only mean "real" cars then)

Is it Edvard's car?

Is this car used indoors? outdoors? or both?

Has Edward stained the glass of the car? Or has he told her something which makes her think she needs wipers for it?

Is the glass in Anna's parent's car? Are the wipers to be used for a side window of the car? Or the back window? So that she can look through it better?

Are Anna and Edvard related in some way? Are the aquaintances?

Or does Anna's dog like Edvard very much and every time it sees Edvard on the screen it "gives him a kiss"?

<b>***SPOILER***

Based on an old Polish joke from the times of Communism:

Edvard, the Polish First Secretary (like a president), visits a kindergarten. He asks all the children what would they want to receive.
Little Anna says: "I'd want some wipers."
"Wipers? Does your dad have a car?" Edavrd says in surprise.
"I don't mean the ones for the car. I want them for the TV."
"For the TV? Why?"
"Well, whenever you show up in TV, everyone begins spitting on the screen and I can't see anything!"
