It’s time again for the trickiest time of year. That profound question. NOT ‘do we spell it Hannukah, Chanukah or even Chranukah’ – but ‘what are the best, fun gift ideas for kids to fill 8 luminous days?’ No one wants ANOTHER menorah, dreidel, or bag of gelt. It’s almost the opposite of a present, candy you have to work for. You’ve got to EARN that candy. You feel a little gilt-y at the end of it all, just you and a pile of ripped gold tinfoil.
We have a great range of fun, unique toys sorted by age and interest and we have fabulous giftwrap. And we have put together a Best of Hanukkah Gifts site just to make selection and inspiration even easier, with some special toys and deals you won’t find elsewhere in our store.
This year, let’s put a bit more feeling into our present selection – maybe fewer pencils stamped with stars of David, and more toys that reflect the true rebel spirit of Hanukkah. We’ve got you sorted out with a fun bestseller to match each Hanukkah theme, all laid out here in plain English, translated, of course, from its original Hebrew in the old texts.

Dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, we made it out of PLAY TIME! Have your games and principles, too. There’s nothing about Hanukkah that says you can’t have both! Let us guide you through the darkness on this. These gifts are a more fun spin on the festivities than a Dreidel on a tilt-a-whirl!
And to ensure the children in your life enjoy themselves, while not gambling or overthrowing tyranny or browsing the Best of Hanukkah Gifts site, we thought you could probably use a few jokes from our Joke Factory.
Which hand should you light the menorah with?
Neither, much safer to use a candle.
What’s the best Hanukkah gift for someone who has everything?
A burglar alarm.
What do you call a latke that looks wrong?
An unidentified frying object.
A Jewish family – no surprise- found themselves in a Chinese restaurant on Christmas day. They were amazed when the Chinese waiter spoke to them in fluent Yiddish. How could this be, they asked the manager. “Shhhhh,” he said, “Not so loud, he thinks we’re teaching him English”.
