***************************************************************************************
If you're in the market for a handmade, gorgeous hula hoop and/ or a beautiful, one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry, then you've come to the right place!

We have been handcrafting hula hoops since 2007 and are one of the oldest hoop stores on ETSY. Our hoops are split into four categories: Heavy Weight (160 PSI tubing, 3/4 inch), Mid Weight (100 PSI tubing, 3/4 inch), Lightweight (125 PSI tubing, 1/2 inch) and Polypro (in both 3/4" and 5/8"). From time to time, we also stock HDPE.

Here are a few things to consider before making your purchase...

✪ Diameter: Beginners - To pick the diameter that's best for you, simply measure from the floor to your belly button or rib cage. Slender individuals will want a smaller diameter hoop (closest to the belly button), while fuller figured individuals will choose a larger diameter (closest to the rib cage). Those with an athletic build will fall in the middle. You'll have the option to choose your hoop diameter, in the drop down menu when making your purchase. You can also include information in the 'Notes' section when ordering. I welcome inquiries and would love for you to reach out to me before placing your order, if you have any questions at all.

Here's a really great hoop sizing guide (courtesy of Spin Matsuri):

Categories:

✪ Beginner Hoops (160 PSI, 3/4 inch tubing) - Sturdy, durable and weighing about one pound, this is our heaviest option. A great hoop for beginners, this hoop is large, comfortable and slow-moving. Friction tape provides added grip so the hoop will 'stick' to your body to help keep it spinning. Therefore, even the novice hooper will experience instant success!

✪ Midweight Hoops (100 PSI, 3/4 inch tubing) - Also constructed from durable material, these are similar to our Signature Monster Hoops in aesthetics, but they are lighter and smaller in size. A great hoop for the intermediate hooper, or beginner with slender build who prefers a lighter option.

✪ Lightweight Hoops (125 PSI, 1/2 inch tubing): Includes all hoops in our "Molly and the Hoola Monsters" kids line. This is a perfect hoop for children, and it doubles as a budget-friendly, lightweight hoop for intermediate to advanced hoopers. A great 'training' hoop before that first polypro purchase ;)

✪ Polypro Hoops - These are high performance hoops most often used by advanced hoopers. Polypro hoops are small, fast, responsive and very light. Often used for tricks, quick breaks and super high tosses. Purchase two of the same size for twin/ poi-style hooping!

Each hoop is hand made, using industrial tubing and decorative tapes. At Hoola Monsters, we view hoop-making as an art form, and we love making hoops almost as much as we love to hoop dance. We've also got plenty of earth-inspired, handcrafted jewelry for sale!

Don't see something you like? Want specific colors or sizes? No worries. Just send us a message and we'll do our best to create something beautiful for you. And don't forget to visit us on the web at hoolamonsters.com, hoolamonsterkids.com and hoola-fit.net.

Praise from our Customers:
"I received my hoop in the mail today and it is even more beautiful than I expected! I love it, it's perfect, and it's so easy to use! I'm new to hooping, but I can't wait to practice and learn, and I will recommend you guys to everyone I know looking for a new hoop."
- Jennifer from Florida

"Great dance hoop, its my favorite I use it every day. It's so small and lightweight and it collapses to half it's size. I absolutely love it!"
- Grace from Kentucky

JEWELRY: All of our pieces are handcrafted with love by Abby, using natural gemstones, charms and interesting, good vibe finds.

I love my first ever dancing hula hoop! The weight is great for beginners and I love the color. It took a bit to ship, but the shop owner was very helpful and responsive! The heat made it so it took a while to get back to its original hoop shape after it was collapsed during shipping, but now it's perfect and it brings me a ton of joy :) I just ordered another hoop today!

About

Hula Hoops and Good Vibes

Hi and thank you so much for visiting my shop! Hoola Monsters is one of the oldest hoop stores on ETSY, and it's also Florida's first full service hoop dance company. I believe that hooping is a powerful life improvement practice that positively affects one's spirit, health and well-being while simultaneously bringing happiness into the heart and soul.

I started selling my handcrafted hoops in 2007 at the Saturday Morning Market in St. Petersburg, FL. It's one of the largest farmer's markets in the Southeast, and I had an amazing opportunity to introduce my community to hoop dance. Word spread quickly and people started asking for classes and performances. Before I knew it, I was running a legitimate business! I resigned from an 8-year marketing career to run Hoola Monsters full time in 2010. (I previously worked at a global public relations firm in New York City).

Since that fateful day when I left corporate America, I've written and produced a children's DVD (which is available for sale in my shop), performed on-stage with bands nationwide, and created an American Council on Exercise-approved hula hoop teacher training program. I also run an 11-person performance troupe full of amazingly talented, beautiful beings.

Needless to say, hoop dance has completely changed my life, and it made me realize that anything is possible. With this idea in mind, I launched Good Vibe Designs in 2012. Like my hoops, every piece of jewelry I sell is handmade with love. If you'd like to learn more, please visit my websites and let's connect on Instagram, too:

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
Payment must be received and cleared before hoops are shipped. Thank you for your understanding :)
Shipping
All hoops are shipped via USPS, which can take up to 7 days in transit when shipped within the US. Due to the handmade nature of our products, please allow between 2-3 weeks for your hoop to arrive. All hoops are hand-made and, and in some cases, the hoop will need to be crafted before it's ready to send. I usually ship hoops out twice a week. If you live outside of the United States, please message me for details on shipping costs before you order. I am happy to accomodate orders out of the country but need to get an estimate and change the listing to accomodate the shipping difference. It's usually about $10 extra to ship outside of the country but varies slightly, depending on the location.
Refunds and Exchanges
With proper care, your Monster Hoop should last for years to come. To avoid scrapes and damage, we suggest hooping on soft surfaces (such as grass, carpet or sand). Avoid concrete, if at all possible. Important note: Do not leave your hoop in a hot car, especially your travel hoop. Monster Hoops are virtually indestructable, but high heat WILL cause your hoop to warp.

If your hoop breaks within 6 months of purchase (provided that care intructions have been followed), simply contact us to discuss options. We ofter hoop repairs, however, the customer will be responsible for shipping. We aim to please and want to ensure that you are satisfied with your purchase.
