A noise maker from the jewish holiday Purim. used when the word "Haman" is readen.
With all due respect, but ehhrr...we call them rattles and our football-hooligans use them a lot. Children too, and in fact everyone else with the strong conviction that they deserve more of our attention than they're presently getting......You didn't pack the sound did you?
Nice model though. :)
Well if you've ever been to a Purim Play, you'ld know what this was!
Around the same time you uploaded this, I was in a Purim Play and the audience was using these :)
Yes, Joseph, Shachar and now you tell me these rattles are being used by the audience during a Purim Play. I merely reacted the first time to point out that these things are widely spread and used for a large variety of purposes.
I mentioned soccerfans ( although they seem to have turned their attention toward hooters, powered by compressed air containers) and children, who used them to simulate a two-stroke-engine sound on their bikes.( I did that, although we boys cooked-up our own contraptions, added a soundbox too: way noisier).
I didn't mention orchardowners, who used them during the summermonth's to keep the birds at bay. Especialy plum- and cherrytrees got compleatly ravenged if you didn't do that.
As for the little joke at the end: Activists used them to draw the attention of the public in malls and shopping-centers. Since they usualy operate in small groups, they run the risk of being ignored.
See you around.... :)
Yeah, but they sell these especially for Purim Plays ;)
I see.., so tell me, you can't show up at a Purim Play with just any ol' ordinary rattle then?....
Sure you can, but these can be decorated differently :)
