Doorstep cool box for milk?

When I was growing up, my mum had an insulation/cool box that was designed to fit two bottles of milk and stop the milk going off on a warm day (the milkman delivered after we all left for school/work). Anyone know of something similar that I could get?

We moved house a couple of years ago and on sunny/warm days our 'new' neighbour very kindly takes our milk from the doorstep and puts it in our fridge until we get back from work. I'm feeling very guilty that she does this and was wondering if there were any cool boxes that would just fit a couple of pints of milk. I don't particularly want an enormous cool box sitting on the doorstep!

I've been looking for one of these.

I found milk minder on-line but its not big enough for me so didn't look at ordering one.

ThingummyBob that's exactly what I'm looking for! It's the same as the one my mum had. Our milk company don't seem to sell them. Now I just need to find where I can get one of those from on-line or locally. At least I know they're still made by someone.

That is lovely! I use an insulated bag with ice bricks in so you could try that till you find your milk minder.

No-one seems to sell them on-line. Not even Amazon or eBay or trusty Lakeland. The only places I've found that sell them are K&W dairies and B&A dairies. Don't suppose any kind MNers get their milk delivered by them and would post one to me?!

I use a small silver bathroom pedal bin, can fit 2 pint bottles and a 2 litre plastic bottle. Seems to keep the milk cool (milkman delivers at 3am).
