Plush Lulav and Etrog Play Set for Children
Now kids can shake a lulav and etrog without any fear of breaking or dropping it. This plush lulav and etrog play set makes a fun gift for Sukkot.
Lulav is 18" tall. The esrog (4" x 2.5") is attached to the lulav with a velcro fastener.
Shake shake shake. Shake shake shake. Shake your lulav!
Sukkot lasts for seven days. The Talmud (the book of Jewish law, as discussed by rabbis between 200-500 C.E.) requires taking four species of plants and grasping and shaking them in a specific manner on each of these seven days. (Really! I'm not making this up!)
The first three species are: the palm frond, myrtle tree, and willow branch which are bound together and called the lulav. The fourth species is the etrog which is a large lemon-like citrus fruit. A blessing is said along with this ritual, all of which is a prayer for adequate rainfall to support the Earth's vegetation.
Appropriate for children 1+.

Nice-quality toy - fun for my 6-year-old to play with, and it makes a good sukkot decoration, too!
As the title says: it's ok. Good for educational purposes, but as a toy it's not very fun/exciting. My child is young though, so perhaps in the future they'll have more fun with it! :)
I loved all of these items. I purchased them for our children's ministry to teach the holidays to the children.
My 4 year old loved it :)
