Wearable Watering Can

not a ten gallon hat
  [vote for,

No more strained backs lugging a sloshing watering can. No more sore muscles trying to tilt it over the tulips.

To picture this incredible can, that lets you carry and pour 10 gallons over your bulb beds with ease, think a donut-shaped cake tin ready with its liquid contents. Now let Barbie step into the middle hole. She ducks her head through a strap that goes between the inside edges so that it passes from the nape of her neck down over her ample bosom. She then straightens her svelte legs to easily lift the load like two milk pails on a yoke and grasps two vertical posts attached to the same edges to steer and tilt the can.

Add a spout at the front, and make the watering can oval to ease walking and - Violets! - no-sweat gardening is a reality. Ken too, enjoys topping off the carp pond and wetting the newly-poured sidewalk beyond the reach of the hose with this handy utensil.

       Right maths time... 1 gallon [UK] = 4.54609 liters of water assuming imperial gallon, 1 liter of water weighs 1kg therefore a 10 gallon hat would weigh , 4.54609 x 10 = 45.5 kilos do u fancy that much weight on your head? or have i misunderstood the design?

       I knew, (strongly suspected), this one was yours as soon as I read the title.

The water container isn't on her head engineer1, I think, (strongly suspect), that you are just pushing for a sketch.

       Fries has it right, this is ”not” a hat. The kilos down by Barbie's hips would be distributed over her silky shoulders – no more strenuous than giving 13 year-old Ken Jr. a ride.

       have you *seen* the size of 13 year olds?

       Attempting to be droll, my dear.
