Tonight begins the celebration of Hanukkah. For the next eight nights our family will be lighting candles each night to celebrate. The girls each have their own Menorah, in addition to our family Menorah. Hanukkah is one of their favorite holidays – probably because they get one gift each night. I am always on the lookout for smaller gifts for the first seven nights and culminate Hanukkah with one big gift they can share. This years big gift is a doll house which will make a great addition to their playroom. I’ve been thinking about getting them this doll house for a year now and finally did it. However, in keeping with our traditions, many of their gifts will celebrate Hanukkah like new dreidels, gelt (chocolate golden coins), Hanukkah books, etc. One of those gifts is a new toy set I recently discovered called The Shpielmans.
I’m sure you’ve heard of the Mensch on a Bench, and even The Gelt Giving Golem, but now allow me to introduce you to The Shpielmans! Who are The Shpielmans you ask. Well, there’s Zaidy (Grandpa), Babby (Grandma), Tatty (Daddy), Mommy, Duvid, Moishe, Ruchel, Shmulik, Rivky and the babies Fayga and Motty. The Shpielmans are a Jewish Hasidic family representative as toy figurines with interactive accessories that help them celebrate Shabbos.
Made with tremendous attention to detail and design, The Shpielmans make a great Hanukkah gift! Your little one can help Babby light the Shabbat (Judaism’s day of rest) candles, slice the Challah (a soft, sweet Jewish bread, usually braided and typically eaten on ceremonial occasions) bread along with Tatty, and help Zaidy put on his shtreimel (round fur hats generally worn by Hasidic men!) The girls are going to have so much fun recreating all the Jewish holidays with fun experiences with The Shpielmans. They can even take the babies on a stroll to Shul (Synagogue) with the family.
The Shpielmans Family Pack Deluxe Edition comes with all eleven family members and themed Shabbat accessories. These timeless toys will enhance the play of children from all cultures, as they identify with the underlying themes of giving, friendship, culture and happiness. The Shpielmans promote wholesome Jewish values and they have inspired the imagination, values and creativity of countless children all over the world. Enjoy Shabbos with the entire mishpacha (family!)
The Shpielmans Combo Pack 4 features Tatty, Mommy, Ruchel, baby and, stroller.
