Have these gone out of fashion? I remember when I was young, just about everybody was into the hula hoop craze, me included. In fact, I was pretty good at keeping the hoop up, but not now. lol. My granddaughter has a smaller sized one with Disney Princesses on it, which she bought with her own money from the Disney Store. On Thursday night, she went to a local Billy Smart's Circus, with her Mum, and there was an act with a hula hoop. Has the craze died, or is it coming back? Did you have a hula hoop when you were younger?

Brings back memories, doesnt it? I loved the hula hoop, and you dont see them around as much anymore. I actually got one for my daughter's birthday in march. She loves them. At her school they use them too as they learn circus acts and some of the kids are quite good with them - even using more than one. My daughter also used to do rythmic gymnastics before we moved and they used the hula hoop with that. I am glad they still bring joy to kids in this day and age, as you usually only hear them talking about computers and playstations etc.

Yes, it does bring back memories and a bit of nostalgia with it. I loved the hula hoop and would still do it now if I fitted one and was still good enough. I got it off to a fine art in my younger days and it certainly did my figure good. lol Thank you for your response Kayrod. Brightest Blessings.

I only remember playing with hula hoops during my primary school days, when we used hula hoops to 'hook' and 'pull' a fellow student. We would have to avoid being 'hooked'. We do not use the hula hoops the proper way we were taught to - skip, twist and jump. Not long ago, I saw a colorful hula hoop amid the pool of toys belonging to my little niece.

Yes, we had them at primary school... wooden ones, for use in P.E. We used to use them for school sports days to, for jumping in and out of or putting them over our heads, passing them down our bodies, then stepping out of them... mainly in obstacle races. Those were the good old days, eh, Why? Thank you for your respons my friend and Brightest Blessings.

Yes, they're certainly fun and good for the figure, toboot. We used to have wooden versions of them at school for physical education. lol. It seems to be a fad that comes and goes, but it's never come back and stuck as its initial days. Thank you for your response Gabs... love and hugggs. x
