Dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, I made it out of some other company's clone blocks

Hanukkah is over, but I've got one more to post before moving on to the season of LEGO-built manger scenes. I didn't post any LEGO-built dreidels this year, because I didn't find any new ones that I didn't post hear last year. The dreidel, of course, is a spinning top that is both used for Hanukkah games and also to remind kids that "A great miracle happened there." Joanna Brichetto, of Bible Belt Balabusta fame, found a clone brand, Binyan Blocks, that sells buildable dreidels, with figures included. Follow the link for Joanna's reviews of these sets.

  1. I wish I'd thought of your post title first! Or maybe, "Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel, I made it out of gender-specific colors to perpetuate the social norms of a particular group."
