Plastic Toy Hammer

| |

Plastic Toy HammerPlastic toy hammer with two accordion like parts that make a squeaky noise at bopping and measures: 24cm x 12cm (9-2/5 X 4-7/10 inches).

These plastic toy hammers are commonly used on Yom Ha’atzmaut (Israeli Independence Day).

On Independence Day, street vendors sell tiras (corn on the cob) and plastic squeaky hammers (huh?!) This is beyond doubt the oddest custom to typify this holiday in Israel: the custom of bopping total strangers over the head with a toy hammer which emits a high pitched squeaking noise when it hits! Why? Why not? It seems to be just one of those things that somebody started one year and it caught on and became a tradition.
