Grand Bernardo's little circus

La Tête de pioche

He uses his powers of persuasion (more like insistence!) to convince a mom or dad to sit on the bike and make the unique carousel go round.... To learn more about this fantastic object inspired by the world of fairgrounds and traditional circuses, step right up! Come one, come all!
