Hardwood Hanukkah Dreidel - Sealed

Description

This is a dreidel for Hanukkah (Chanukah). It's got the four characters for dreidels outside of Isreal - Nun, Gimmel, Heh, and Shin, which stand for "Nes Gadol Haya Sham" ("a great miracle happened there").

It's finished with 2 layers of shellac, so it should hold up to heavy play. I did not make the dreidel itself - it is machine-turned, I just add the characters and finish it. The dreidel is a little over 1" wide and about 2.5" tall from tip to top.


How to Play:

This is used for kids' game at Hannukah. Each player starts out with 10 or 15 coins or other small items, and places one item into the "pot". The first player spins the dreidel, which lands with one of its symbols facing up, indicating the appropriate action to be taken, corresponding to one of the following Yiddish words:

* Nun - nisht - "not" - the next player spins
* Gimel - gants - "all" - the player takes the entire pot
* Hey - halb - "half" - the player takes half of the pot, rounding up if there is an odd number
* Shin - shtel ayn - "put in" - the player puts one or two markers in the pot

The game lasts until one person has won everything.


Safety:

This item contains small parts - though the handle is glued in securely, the dreidel itself is small enough to pose a choking hazard, so it is not for children under 3.


Shipping & Handling:

These items are made and ready to ship, I will ship this first class mail - Hanukkah starts on December 24th this year - if you are ordering last minute and are concerned about it arriving on time, contact me before paying and I can ship with a different method.

If you need more than we have listed we can probably make them for you, send me a message with your shipping location for a quote and time frame.

Our items are very rarely damaged in shipping, but it does happen on occasion. If you have not requested shipping insurance, we are not liable for damages during shipping. However, we have been known to make exceptions, so please feel free to contact us.

Shipping policies

We've done our best to present you with the most cost effective shipping option.
If you are purchasing multiple items or having something shipped internationally, you may benefit by contacting us first to get an actual shipping estimate.

In most cases our shipping prices reflect shipping by the most cost-effective method. This means First Class Mail for domestic shipments of items weighing under 13 oz, and Priority Mail for anything over that weight. Flat-rate can be cheaper in some cases, we estimate that way when possible. For international shipments, most estimates are for First Class Package rates, items over 4 lbs will be shipped via Priority Mail.

If you need expedited shipping (Express Mail, etc) we can generally offer it, but you will need to send a message to inquire about costs. Please let us know the country and zip code and the item(s) you're wanting shipped.
