Deadly looking dreidels for Hanukkah

Israeli mail order company offers IDF themed dreidels to spin on model Merkava in time for Hanukkah.

Holiday shopping season is upon us, and in the pell-mell rush to stuff those stockings, we sometimes forget the Hanukkah wing of the family. Don't sweat it, we've got you covered: Here are 10 unique Israeli Defense Force-themed dreidels with a do-it-yourself kit that includes a Merkava tank stand on which to spin them.

These octagon shaped tops feature not only the traditional Hebrew letters on four sides, but also renderings and insignias of different military units--i.e., Sayeret Matkal, Givaati, Golani, paras, etc., so even the goy can keep current on IDF order of battle.

For those hard-to-please, callow stateside brats who don't know Samu from Sqoufiye, the company Zahal offers a personal unmanned aerial vehicle, the Casper 250.
