This red and blue kids hula hoop is part of our ‘Wiggly Hoops’ range. These hula hoops are made with the same care and attention as our bespoke orders, but have a few quirky features to them.
These hula hoops are as good as new, save for some slight imperfections which should not affect your use of the hula hoop or its performance. Many of these hula hoops have been in storage for 12 months due to the pandemic and may be slightly wiggly in shape. By purchasing one of our Wiggly Hoops, you’re helping us to reduce our waste by making use of wonky tubing or using up tape that would otherwise have gone to landfill.
Our Wiggly Hula Hoops are sold with full transparency about possible quirks and therefore cannot be returned or refunded.
These Kids Hula Hoops are some of our most popular products. They are heavier than cheap, shop bought hoops, but not weighted for exercise. The strong plastic tubing will take a lot of heavy use.
With their two strips of grip tape and two colours of sparkly tape they reflect the light beautifully, dazzling people nearby when you move with your hoop.
These hoops come in 20mm tubing.
(Approximate weight of 20mm tubing: 470g based on 38″ diameter hoop)

Bigger is better! Yes, even for kids, a bigger hoop will rotate slowly giving you more time to wiggle! It also gives them some space to grow into the hoop as they get bigger.
To get a guide on the size you need for your first hoop, measure in inches from the floor to two inches above your belly button.

Looking after your new hula hoop can help prolong its life.
Here are our top tips for taking good care of your hoop.
*** You should always warm up carefully before using your hula hoop and cool down properly afterwards ***
Use it outside
It’s best to use your hula hoop outside where you have plenty of space, away from breakable objects.
Colourful tapes can leave marks
The colourful tape is beautiful but acts like crayon on the walls! Be careful if hula hooping inside. These marks can usually be removed with some Cif or other cleaning products.
Grass rather than concrete
Hula hoop on a grassy surface to help preserve your tapes. Concrete, tarmac and brick work will scuff and scratch the tape quickly.
There is a hand made join in your hula hoop. It can take lots of wear and tear but lots of squashing, pushing or pulling the hoop into an oval shape will put it under unnecessary stress.
Muddy hula hoop? Use a damp cloth and elbow grease to remove mud and dirt.
Don’t leave your hula hoop out side in the rain. The hula hoop is water proof but the glue on the tapes is not. If left out in the damp, the tapes may peel or crack.
Storing your hula hoop
Store your hula hoop somewhere dry. Hang it up, lay it flat or stand it up against a wall. Try not to leave it leaning against anything as over time, this can warp the shape of the hoop.
Do not leave it against a radiator or other heat source. The tubing is made from plastic and will melt. Try not to leave your hula hoops in the car, especially on a hot day. This can warm up the tubing and misshapen your plastic circle.
If for any reason your hula hoop does become misshapen, you can reshape it by leaving it out in the sun on a flat surface to heat up and level out.
