In trying to solve the Hanukkah mysteries, there are so many questions this holiday season. One big gift or 8 small ones? Something special with the first candle or something inspiring with the last? Chanukkah with a C and two Ks, Chanukah with a C and one K? Or Hanukah with no C and one K? Turns out, it doesn’t matter!
When it comes to gifts, we’re guessing you assume we did a break-even analysis spreadsheet and cracked the code to the perfect algorithm, don’t you? Well, we did, but we can’t just share our secrets that easily! The answer is even more simple: Why not both! Jewish kids all over the world have agonized over this exact predicament for over 2,000 years… probably. Or maybe just the unenlightened adult gift-givers.
Here at Wicked Uncle, we definitely have at least six smaller presents and a choice of way more than two significant heavy-hitting gifts. Check ‘em out in our special Hanukkah selection, full of unique and fun Hanukkah gifts. There may be a lot of confusion surrounding the Hanukkah mysteries, but gift giving isn’t one of them.
- Creepy Glow Creatures
- LED Light Up Glasses
- Light Up Bubbleizer
- Metal Detector
- Brightworks Design and Drill
- Flexible Roll-Up Drum Kit
As they say in the show biz: Lights, Miracles, Rebellion!
65 zoob pieces, innumerable hours of fun! Make tons of hanging, sticking, bending, glowing, eerie creatures once you’ve lit your shamash and candles. You could even build your own golem!
Now, this is just the kind of toy that hits the nail on the Judaic head. Not only is it industrious (you’ve got to connect 10 plastic pieces in order to create your ball), it’s unbelievably fun! Its portability allows you to practice flicks and kicks anywhere, and the 10 pieces can also be clicked into a frisbee, rugby ball, juggling balls, and more!
Aaaaand we’re right back to goofy and silly – switch it up, keep ‘em on their toes! These red and blue neon glasses also have a FLASH setting, so you can turn your latkes and matzah ball soup into the rave our ancestors intended it to be.
It’s ALMOST scholarly – it’s like a scholarly trick. With all the adorable patterns, like hearts and kitties, it seems like a fun, innocuous accessory. Alas! It’s for reading under the covers, in cars on road trips, or in your room while your little sibling is asleep. A perfect trinket for a bookworm!
This toy is a classic crowd-pleaser, upgraded with some wicked 2018 features. You get to watch the bubbles getting cooked up inside the bubbleizer body, then pour out by the thousands, lit up by wacky colors as they go! Totally portable and undeniably joyful, this bubble factory is the ultimate in post-prayer frivolity!
And now, for THE BIG GIFTS:
The Design & Drill is a wonderful first step on the road to creativity and imagination. The kit comes with 80 colored plastic bolts to arrange onto the light-up boards in any of 12 provided patterns, or to design from your own kooky brain! The translucent drill and drill bits are great for dexterity training, while you’re practicing your colors, shapes, and being dazzled by the glowing colored lights!
For the older kids, who doesn’t want to be the cool drummer in the friend group? This Flexible Roll-up Drum Kit has got record and playback functions, multiple instrumental tracks, professional demos, multiple sound styles, audio input and output, AND you can connect your iPod, Zune, smartphone, or whatever kids are using these days. The 9 drum images play the respective sounds of the drums they represent. It’s about the most authentic drumming experience one can have without actually having drums. The best part? You can plug in headphones so only the drummer hears the beat!
Unequivocally, the great Hanukkah debate of 200 BC has been settled: 8 little ones or 1 big one? It’s 2018! We can have it all!
Second only to playing Dreidel, it’s Wicked Joke Time!
My mother once gave me two sweaters for Hanukkah. The next time we visited, I made sure to wear one. When she saw what I was wearing she said, “What’s the matter? You didn’t like the other one?”
I asked the waiter if my latkes would be long. He said, “No sir, they’ll be round!”
What’s green, spins round and has wheels?
A dreidel, I lied about the wheels.
