Would you like to win a LEGO dreidel kit? Ideally, you’ve all got enough parts at home to make a whole battalion of unique, custom dreidel models, but in case you don’t, take some of mine. The more LEGO dreidels in the world, the better.
My little kit includes parts to make the model above. The colors and bricks will vary, but the dreidel will the same shape. I’m including four Avery stickers so your kid can add the appropriate letters, but he or she may use a Sharpie (if allowed) and write directly on the bricks. (Rubbing alcohol removes Sharpie goofups from LEGO plastic.) That’s it. No frills. Simple. Just for fun.
See my earlier posts about the whys and hows of LEGO dreidels: LEGO dreidels, DIY, and this year’s DIY LEGO Dreidel kits.
After countless hours of (fun) testing, this design was one of the best in terms of least number of parts required and least amount of finesse to spin. The “boat stud” as contact point makes a smoooooth and long-lasting spin.
Here’s a parts list in case you want to go ahead and make your own right this minute:
- 2 4×4 bricks
- 1 4×4 plate
- 1 2×2 plate (square or round)
- 1 2×2 brick
- 1 1×1 round brick (cylinder)
- 1 2×2 rounded plate “boat stud” (or substitute one 1×1 round plate / pip)
You can eyeball the photo and put it together, right? Let me know if you want instructions.
To Enter: Just leave a comment here or at the Bible Belt Balabusta Facebook Page and I’ll select two (random) winners by noon, CST on Wednesday, November 28, 2012. I’ll contact the winners for mailing info that day, and if I don’t hear back from you within say, three days, I’ll select a runner-up. (U.S. address only, please, because I’m trying to keep things simple.)
my son would love this! Happy Hannukah!
I love your emails and I show a lot of then to my boys. My 9 year old flipped over the lego dreidel one, so winning this kit would send him over the moon. Not to mention, make him the envy of his day school class!
My grandchildren are huge Lego fans, and this dreidle would surely make their Chanukah special!
Chag Sameach! This is awesome!
What fun! Thanks for posting this. My 7yr old will be so excited 🙂
My little guy would love this! He plays dreidel all year long!
This is awesome! I have a little boy who not only is a Lego Maniac but is currently singing ‘Dreidel Dreidel Dreidel I made it out of clay’ at the top of his lungs in the shower!
Big lovers of dreidels an lego here so this would be great 🙂
My son would love this. He is almost 4 and is in love with Legos. Thanks for the great ideas, including the Menorah!
What a great idea. My son would love this!!!
I would be honored to have a Bible belt balabusta! 🙂
I meant to say ‘a Bible belt balabusta original’. I hit the return too soon.
Thiw would be a great start to our holiday season. Happy Hanukkah!
Is it bad that my lego collection is so old (not me, mind, just my lego… honestly) that I had to go and google “boat stud” to find out how common that part apparently is? Ooops!
We are in the same “boat:” I had to look it up to find out what it was called…
My son would love a Lego dreidel. He has lots of fancy Lego kits, but he asked for “plain Lego” for Chanukah so he can be more creative. I love it!
So I tried to assemble a dreidel kit while in the Lego store in NYC but got overwhelmed by all the options. Would love to win a kit for my girls.
Wait. You’re not saying there was an official LEGO dreidel kit, are you? I may faint.
Looks so cute. Great ideas, I just discovered your blog.
Thats awesome. My son would love to win this!
Love it! 🙂
We are celebrating Hanukkah for the first time this year and are really looking forward to it. With a LEGO CRAZY BOY in the house this would be a perfect option.
