Olde worlde milke flagone

Pump until you get your milk

It's good for kids to drink lots of milk, and at the rate they consume it you need to buy it in bulk to get a good price per volume. However the bulk flagons are so large and heavy that kids can't lift them to pour, and anyone who has kids knows that having one routine thing in the house that a kid can't do themselves is the slippery slope to a whiny mom-and-dad-you-do-it household ambience.

So the flagons really need to come with an attachable pump handle that looks and gushes like an old fashioned water well pump. You know how it looks - long handle, widish downward pointing faucet and rich Dickensian symbolism.

Optional extras: - bucolic milkmaid and shepherd boy outfits - educational material about cowpox and child labour conditions throughout history so the little "darlings" can realise how lucky they are

       Are you asleep, bigsleep? You forgot to bun. I'll bun for you this time, but don't get used to it. I'll also bun it for me, cause I like the idea. (Hence a net gain of one bun only.)
