With our wide range of sparkly colours and patterned duct tape we have something for every personality, age, and interest!
This style of children’s hula hoop is bright, playful and lots of fun, with a choice of one colour of super sparkly Holographic Sequin Tape or Mirror Tape, one choice of patterned duct tape, and two or three choices of 6mm gaffer tape in either a spiral or criss-cross pattern.

With plenty of grip, these hoops are great for beginning and more experienced hoop stars!
These hoops are made completely to order to suit the individual child. Please note that these size/age ranges are only approximate and it is a good idea to send me a message if you are unsure how to choose the right diameter (one way to get a starting point is to measure your child from the floor to their belly button and add about 10cm).
* Mini: 1 – 2 years : 50-60cm: 16mm PE tubing
* Small: 2 – 4 years : 60 – 75cm: 16mm PE tubing
* Medium: 5 – 7 years : 75 – 85cm: 16mm or 19mm PE tubing
* Large: 8 – 10 years : 85 – 90cm: 19mm PE tubing
All hoops are measured by their Outside Diameter (OD) in centimetres. If you would like to order in inches, please choose the closest size and put your request in the order notes. You can see my conversion chart here.
“WHAT SIZE HOOP SHOULD I BUY?”
**These guidelines are for general advice, and may not always apply. For hoopers who are particularly tall or curvy, a larger hoop can be easier to start with. Please send me a message if you are unsure.
“WHAT TYPE OF TUBING SHOULD I ORDER?”
-PE tubing is what children’s hula hoops are made from and also the majority of dance and beginner hoops; it is hardy and durable, and comes in several thicknesses for different uses:
-HDPE tubing offers an in-between alternative to the heavy duty PE and the lightweight Polypro. More responsive than PE and more durable than polypro, HDPE is favoured by a wide range of hoopers from confident beginners to more experienced hoopers wanting a little more weight than polypro offers. It is highly recommended for those hooping in very cold climates as it won’t crack as easily as polypro. I currently stock a small selection of HDPE in 16mm (5/8) and 19mm (3/4″).
-Polypro tubing is specially designed and manufactured for hula hoops and is more lightweight and responsive than PE. Polypro is favoured by more experienced hoopers wanting to learn more complex tricks and challenge their on and off-body moves.
