The table should have a fan on it IMO given that it is 45.9 degrees celsius (114.6F) in France currently.

I take it though he is all old parts, nothing exclusive to this set?

 :o

It's 8°C here at the moment. Hottest it gets is around 30, couldn't imagine 46.

Nice figure. They should do a whole range of national stereotypes. Dutch cheese seller dressed in orange, Scotsman in a kilt with a bottle of whisky, Norwegian fishmonger, Russian spy, Turkish kebab seller (exists), fat German with beer (exists) and so on.

Cute!

The annoying (possibly deadly) thing about heatwaves is that France hasn't fully adopted air conditioning. So when you should be staying inside, out of the sun, you go outside because your apartment/office is an oven. Heatwaves are more bearable in the USA, in my experience. We're also better at having screens on our windows (I say that, but I don't have a screen because it got left out during some maintenance and met with untimely hail, ahem).

But a nice little addition of a caricature Frenchman, although in England you would probably also expect him to have a string of onions and an old bicycle.  I can remember as a youngster (and that's going back 60+ years) when we lived in a small suburban village near Leeds that we always had French onion sellers appear during the spring and early summer, cycling round with strings of onions festooned over their bikes, and usually doing a good trade.

I think the baguettes are archetypal French. They remind me of that French song..
Baguette, Gentil baguette, Baguette, Je te mangerais.

If who can buy the figure was willing to take orders, I would buy one.
