I want to buy my child The Shpielmans. How old should he or she be to play with them?
The Shpielmans are recommended for ages 4 to 104! The toy is not intended for children ages 3 and under, as it contains small parts and can be a choking hazard.
How did The Shpielmans come into existence?
The Shpielmans line was created by veteran toy maker Eytan Siboni. Mr. Siboni had a vision to design a toy of the highest quality that would depict the beauty and culture of Judaism. He approached Isaac Abramchayev with his idea, who then showed it to his partners Dr. Winiarsky, Dr. Lewin, and Dr. Horowitz who all loved the details and intricacies of both the design and the functionality of the toy. Every piece is hand painted and each accessory represents a religious article and fits perfectly in the hands of the figurines. Using only the finest materials, the figures are so realistic the consumer can almost sense their individuality. Together, Mr. Siboni and his partners hope to bring a higher appreciation and understanding to traditional Jewish values. Their ultimate goal is to create similar toys of various cultures helping educate and eliminate prejudices. On behalf of The Shpielmans we invite you to try our toy and hope that you and your family will enjoy it!
