DREIDEL SONGS

I Have a Little Dreidel

I have a little dreidel
I made it out of clay
And when it's dry and ready
Then dreidel I shall play!

(Chorus)
Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel
I made it out of clay
And when it's dry and ready
Then dreidel I shall play!

It has a lovely body
With legs so short and thin
And when my dreidel's tired
It drops and then I win!

My dreidel's always playful
It loves to dance and spin
A happy game of dreidel
Come play now, let's begin!

Sevivon, sov, sov, sov

Sivivon, sov, sov, sov
Hanukkah, hu chag tov
Hanukkah, hu chag tov
Sevivon, sov, sov, sov!

Chag simcha hu la-am
Nes gadol haya sham
Nes gadol haya sham
Chag simcha hu la-am.

(Translation)
Dreidel, spin, spin, spin.
Hanukkah is a great holiday.
It is a celebration for our nation.
A great miracle happened there

HANNUKAH DREIDEL

Home > Hannukah Dreidels

A dreidel is a spinning top with a hebrew letter on each side and used to play a fun game of chance during the festival of Hannukah. The Hebrew letters on the dreidel - Nun, Gimmel, Hey and Peh (or Shin), stand for "Nes Gadol Haya Po" (or "Sham") , which translates as "A great miracle happened here" (or there) . Laura's hand crafted modern Dreidels make a great gift for Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzah or a gift for all your family to enjoy during Hanukah.

The dreidel game is played by two to four players who each get a handful of pennies or chocolate money called "Channukah Gelt". Each player places five chips into the kitty and then takes a turn spinning the dreidel. The players spin the dreidel and depending on what letter the top lands on, he or she will either: NUN - Lose his turn, the dreidel passes to the next player. GIMEL - Win all the pot. HEY - Win half the pot. PEH/SHIN - Lose all of his hannukah gelt.

Dreidels are not just for kids. Laura puts an adult spin on the children's dreidel, creating a sophisticated and superior design that will add beauty and fun to any home. Her dreidel is so well balanced that it seems to spin forever. Hours of fun ensue. Laura's dreidel will be a welcome start or addition to any Judaica collection.

Using her signature themes of spinning discs and cones, Laura has created 2 brand new dreidel designs. The Saturn Dreidel is inspired by planet Saturn's rings, and the Smart Dreidel is an educational yet funky design. To buy a dreidel, click on the "buy now" button.
