Hula Hoops Are back – Hot ‘n Heavy!
Hula Hooping is back!
Depending on how old you are, you may recall the hula hoop fad of the late 1950's...EVERY kid had one! Yeah, I did, too.
The hoops have Native American origins and were also traced back to the 1300's in England, in both metal and wooden forms. In the 1950's, the Wham-O company hit on the idea of marketing the hoops in a plastic form and aiming their marketing toward kids...it worked...VERY well.
It died down after a few years and now - in the 2000's - it's come back strong. It's fun to watch and good exercise as well...watch the above video and then search for more to watch...extremely entertaining!
