Hula Hoops

 Remember hula hoops?  I am pretty sure I am not the only kid that had one or two of these toys.  I know they are still sold at some stores but I have not seen kids out playing with them for a while.  They were the "in" toy when I was growing up.  Let me tell you, I was not very coordinated so it was hard for me to work my hips to get it going for more than 2 seconds.  I could do pretty good using my neck, though.  Hmm...maybe that has something to do with my neck pain as an adult?  Such a cheap toy but hours of fun.  And just think of the exercise we got with these rings!  Maybe we should all go out and find a hula hoop and show our kids how it's done.  Or maybe they will show us.  Either way it will provide a few laughs on your Saturday.

Happy H day! 



  1. LOVE hula hoops! I'm horrible at it, but they're so fun! Thanks for the post =)
    Happy H Day!

  2. Ah hula hoops! Talk about good exercise!

  3. "H" for hula hoops is a good topic.I'm also participating in the a-z challenge. Visit my blog:)

  4. I bought a sports hoop for workouts. I really stunk at it at first. It left interesting bruises around my midriff. Haven't used it in awhile because of that.

  5. My daughter and I just saw someone hula-hooping in an aisle at the store last night. We once had several hula hoops at the house, but-alas-I couldn't keep it going well enough to demonstrate. ha

    I'm blogging through the alphabet this month, too, over at It's a Sweet Trip -
