                  So are we just gonna ignore the fact that Mary Poppins can easily bend reality to her will whenever she wants, and may be the most powerful entity in all of Disney?

                            I think your forgetting something. Michel gave his father the tuppence who in turn gave it to the bank director. So not only did Michel not get to use his tuppence to by bird seed he never saw the said tuppence again.
