A clever tchotchke created by Hannah Rothstein.
Sometimes, the best concepts are the ones with no complex reasoning behind them. Like the Dr. Dreidel. Created for its sheer hilarity and the love of puns, this laser-etched, wooden dreidel brings together two unlikely cohorts: the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah and rap music.
Each Dr. Dre face has been carefully chosen to correlate with the 'aftermath' of the dreidel's spin.
ג Gimmel, 'take all,' is a dreidel player's dream. It gets a thumbs up from a happy Dr. Dre.
ה Hay, 'take half,' is no reason to party, but isn't too shabby, hence the mildly smug portrait or Dr. Dre.
נ Nun, 'nothing happens,' is a boring outcome. A dead-pan Dr. Dre affirms this.
ש 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.
