A while ago our Tiny Treasure expressed a desire to be 5’6” tall. After months of search I have found the answer in these boots. I’ve negotiated a deal to get the boots without the rest of the outfit if you like Dink, though it would come in for your Human Cannonball activities.
This faux Edwardian cartoon appears in the latest issue of the Royston Vasey W.I. newsletter. It refers, of course, to the Christmas Pudding firing pneumatic cannon made by Mrs Tumby Woodside.
Tumby is such a keen enthusiast for Pneumatic Cannons she is known in the W.I. as Pneumatic Tumby. The cannon has not had a deal of use apart from being used to distribute the Christmas Pudding at this years Royston Vasey Old Folks treat, as its short barrel does not lend itself to accuracy.Some of the old folk got rather more pudding than they bargained for, in fact old Mrs Bagshaw unfortunately had her mouth open at the wrong time and was still chewing several hours afterwards.The United Church of the Foolish Virgins Brownie Pack helped scrape the pudding from the walls of the Church Hall.
Tumby is looking into the possibility of using it to fire confetti at weddings
Tumby Woodside and her Christmas Pudding Cannon.
Note the symmetrical pair of large pneumatic reservoirs.
