This hoop is amazing! I love how versatile it is! I can have a giant hoop or two tiny ones and almost every size between! And the color is phenomenal. Best purchase this year!

About

Professional Fun Havers!

We are fire dancers, builders, festival goers and lovers of fun and dance. We build props, teach workshops in Hooping, Poi, Fire Fans, Acro Yoga & Stilting, and we put on some pretty great fire shows too!

We have been in business since 2005 and have pretty consistent positive feedback from our customers.

We love to play with toys and teach you how to do so. In the process of using these "skill toys" you stop thinking about what you have to do today or your grocery list, and instead you become present in the moment. You will be fascinated by how healthy and liberating it feels to live in the moment, to be free of thought, to just allow yourself to BE.

Frequently asked questions

How fast do you ship?

Care instructions

☛ Be careful when unpackaging! Your hoop is under tension.

Avoid damaging your hoop’s surface as you remove the plastic.
Do not be alarmed if your hoop isn’t circular!

DO NOT CONNECT THE HOOP UNTIL YOU HAVE DONE THE FOLLOWING:

● Allow your hoop to lay open on a flat surface for a MINIMUM of 24 hours.
● If the hoop still doesn’t look circular, roll along a soft surface like grass or carpet.
● Use gentle pressure on the spots that prevent the hoop from looking circular.

AVOID excessive pressure on the connector.

What is a polypro hoop?

Polypro is a nickname given to the type of plastic that these hoops are made out of.
Wikipedia states- “Polypropylene (PP), also known as polypropene, is a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide variety of applications including packaging and labeling,textiles (e.g., ropes, thermal underwear and carpets), stationery, plastic parts and reusable containers of various types, laboratory equipment, loudspeakers, automotive components, and polymer banknotes.”……and now Hula Hoops!

It's also the most popular type of material for intermediate and advanced hoopers.

What's the difference in 3/4" and 5/8" tubing?

This refers to the size of the tubing measured at its widest point. A ¾” hoop is the “standard” size that most people use. It is a very good hoop to get if you are just starting out with a polypro hoop. To give you an idea of the size of this tubing, I can fit my pointer finger in it.
5/8", on the other hand, is only big enough for my pinky.
...and now I have hoops stuck on both hands. :)

A 5/8” hoop is going to be thinner, lighter, and a little more flexible. The people that buy these hoops are usually professional performers or someone that is very small and light. This would be closer to a kid's hoop size and weight.

What the GRIP all about?

Grip refers to what we do to the inside surface of your hoop (where it comes into contact with the body most). Without any grip, the hoop might want to slip down your body depending on what fabric your clothes are made out of. Adding some grip (sanding or tape) will help the hoop to stay on your body and make it easier to learn.

Is hula hooping good for me?

YES! Below are some common benefits to hooping.

• Burns approximately 7 calories per minute hooping, which equates to over 400 calories an hour
• Increases heart rate; great cardio workout
• Increases stamina
• Improves your body’s balance and flexibility
• Strengthens and tones your arms, legs, and abdomen
• Works about 30 muscles in and around your body's core
• Strengthens your low-back stabilizing muscles, which can help anyone with a history of back pain
• Improves spine’s strength and flexibility
• Helps you to develop a sense of body awareness
• Improves hand-eye coordination and motor skills

What is the Dance Hoop or Beginner PE Hoop?

This refers to the type of tubing that is used to make the hoop.

DANCE HOOP

• 3/4" 100 PSI Polyethylene
• Weighs approx 1 pound
• This tubing is best for someone that is either already familiar with waist hooping, brand new to hooping, or that falls into the category of small-medium waist, 5'5" or smaller and under 140 pounds.
• Actual outside diameter measures .95"
• Black tubing typically found at hardware stores

What does the Lifetime Repair cover?

We want to do our part to try and keep plastic out of landfills and ensure that you get to keep using your FAVORITE hoop for as long as possible. With this in mind we have decided to offer Lifetime Repairs on hoops you purchase from thespinsterz.com
