In Edward Scissorhands, why did the inventor first give Edward scissors instead of functioning hands and fingers? Right before his death, he is showing Edward a set of prosthetic hands. Why not use those to begin with.
I'm no expert on the human body nor an inventor, but I always assumed they were there for testing/forming the tendons which would control the hands/fingers.
It might not make sense to me as I may have misunderstood the timeline or the time difference between Edward's creation and the inventors death, but I recall the inventor teaching Edward, trying to educate him. I don't imagine this all happened within a day.
