Welcome to 2024!
We hope you all had a safe and enjoyable break - we sure did. The sun has been shining on most of the country so we’re off to a good start, right?!
Once again we want to say a huge thank you to everyone for your support during the past couple of years. We are very excited to see what 2024 has in store for us!
There were a whole bunch of new year festivals and events happening across the country and we’d love to hear from you if you attended one. Let us know how it was - did the last of the 2023 rain get you; what was the fire and flow scene like; would you recommend it?
PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT - HULA HOOPS
Each of our hula hoops is crafted from scratch using MDPE pipe to guarantee unparalleled durability and resistance to kinks and warping. Each hoop has a riveted or snap button join meaning that our hoops can withstand rough treatment, and you just know the stunning hoop tape will catch even the most wandering of eyes.

Teaming up with our Product Spotlight, we wanted to share our hoop-tastic article that gives you The Inside Scoop on Hoop!
Hooping is an excellent way to keep active, and has been a beloved pastime for children (and adults) for countless generations.
Did you know..? In Australia, children used wooden hoops as toys and as a form of exercise, and this is where the idea for the modern Hula Hoop originated. In 1958, Wham-O released the Hula Hoop, and it’s estimated that around 25 million hoops were sold in just the first four months!
Hoops come in a range of variations, from size to weight, and while it may seem backwards, a lighter, smaller hoop may not necessarily be easier to use. For a more in-depth exploration of this remarkably round prop, be sure to check out our article!
Here’s what Danielle from Timaru reckons about our hoops:
“Fun! Love this hoop. Miss 12 picked it up fast! I’m almost there haha. Love the quality and colours.”
We’re thrilled you and your daughter love your hoop, Danielle!
