Hanukkah is, let's face it, a less cool Christmas. I'm Jewish so I can say that. We've tried over the centuries to make it more Christmas-like but it still pales in comparison. We have no Santa, no reindeer, and a "Hanukkah bush" is a poor substitute for a Christmas tree. The one cool thing you get to do is spin the dreidel. It's basically a game of chance in which you gamble for chocolate coins or other treats. It's my favorite part. The only thing is that the dreidels themselves tend to be kind of plain. No anymore. With Dr. Dreidel, you can play for chocolate bling with a dreidel with Dr. Dre's face on it. The sides correspond to the regular game but with a twist. As the product description explains,
"Gimmel, ‘take all,' is a dreidel player's dream. It gets a thumbs up from a happy Dr. Dre.
Hay, ‘take half,' is no reason to party, but isn't too shabby, hence the mildly smug portrait or Dr. Dre.
Nun, ‘nothing happens,' is a boring outcome. A dead-pan Dr. Dre affirms this.
Shin, ‘put one in,' is pretty depressing; the dreidel player loses an M & M or other such playing piece. But shins are seldom a chronic problem in dreidel. Dr. Dre's definitely overreacting."
I want this so hard. Buy it for me.
