To celebrate the relaunch of our hula hoop collections, 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..? The humble hoop has been around for thousands of years, from ancient Egypt to ancient Greece, all the way to the land down under, good old ‘Straya! In fact, it was the sight of Aussie kids playing with hoops that inspired Wham-O to release their iconic 'Hula Hoop' back in 1958.
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 Sara from Auckland has to say about our hoops:
“Great! My daughter absolutely adores her hoop! The colours are fantastically vibrant, the hoop is sturdy and great quality with the snap lock making it easy to shrink down for travelling.”
We’re thrilled your daughter adores her hoop, Sara! We quite like them too!
