Find all kinds of Chanukah / Hanukkah dreidels, wooden dreidels, plastic draydels, colored dreidles, bold draydles, musical spinning tops, and more. The word dreidel, in Hebrew "Sevivon" (סביבון), is a Jewish variant on the teetotum, a gambling toy found in many European cultures. Each side of the dreidel bears a letter of the Hebrew alphabet: נ‎ (Nun), ג‎ (Gimel), ה‎ (He), ש‎ (Shin), which together form the acronym for "נס גדול היה שם‎" (Nes Gadol Hayah Sham – "a great miracle happened there").
