The High-Tech Dreidel
In a world of 3-D video games and surfing
the Internet, kids may look skeptically at
dreidels - no color graphics, no electronic
sounds and no batteries needed. How could a
toy like that possibly be fun?
Even thought the dreidel has been played with
by children for thousands of years, kids today
may find this simple little top a bit "low-tech"
for their liking. For those modern day kids who
think playing the dreidel game is soooo bo-ring,
here's a new spin on the way we look at this
favorite Chanukah toy.
THE OFFICIAL DREIDEL OPERATORS MANUAL
You are now the proud owner of a high-quality,
state of the art "Dreidel" which can make you
a winner! A multi-faceted, interactive
educational and entertainment micro-system,
the versatile Dreidel utilizes maximum kinetic
transfer technology, putting years of wondrous
experience at your fingertips.
Rapidly rotating on its axis, the Dreidel is
driven by centrifugal forces that defy
gravitational pull. The Dreidel operates
efficiently on renewable energy sources at
high, medium and low speeds. Velocity and
RPM levels are adjusted by the flick of a
finger. Perfectly balanced and precision
engineered, the Dreidel is virtually
maintenance free. It has no moving parts,
and no batteries or upgrades are required.
TO USE: Hold joystick-like handle in upright
position, using thumb and forefinger to
accelerate. Best when operated on smooth
surfaces with low coefficient of friction.
Device may appear stationary, but sound
indicates Dreidel is in use.
After completing its spinning mode, the
Dreidel reaches its turning point and begins
to gyrate, displaying various conic sections
as it decelerates. Dreidel will then shut down
automatically. Quick turnaround time allows
Dreidel to be used repeatedly. Follow
instruction code indicated above and restart.
