Description

It is certainly the most common and the most mainstream representation of the Michelin Man. Curiously, this 6 cm high Brain-teaser Bibendum is also one of the rarest in the collection, their owners stubbornly refusing to part with this childhood memory!
Actually in the 60-70's, from Touquet to Biarritz, passing through Saint-Malo to Royan, tens of thousands of children were a part of Michelin's beach game. Every afternoon Michelin's publicity cars settled in a different seaside resort. Bibendum distributed to every child present on the beach a bag with the famous Brain-teaser in pieces. The first one who managed to rebuild this Bibendum received beautiful gifts emblazoned with Michelin, including balloons, and everyone carefully preserved their beach Bibendum. An object as aesthetic as nostalgic!
