Bulk Israeli Dreidels

Looking for inexpensive bulk Israeli dreidels?  ChocolateGelt.com stocks sets of 10 Israeli style wood dreidels for $3.50 (2008).  Israeli dreidels differ from diaspora dreidels in that they have the hebrew letter pey instead of the hebrew letter shin.  The pey represents the word "po" or here - so that the letters together (nun, gimel, hey, pey) symbolize the phrase nes gadol haya po - or "a great miracle happened HERE".  (Diaspora dreidels have the letters nun, gimel, hey, shin symbolizing the phrase nes gadol haya sham - or "a great miracle happend THERE.")
