Help me pick a hula hoop!!

Sunday, January 27, 2013

So my mom put $45 in my account for my birthday and told me to get a hula hoop. WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! But I have been looking at this etsy site all weekend (for weeks actually) and I can't pick out one to save my life. I can barely narrow it down!! I love all of these. Honestly, I could see myself with any of them. I can't even decide if I really want it to glow in the dark or not. I think I do but that tape is kinda ugly in the light. Which is more important? The versatility of both day and night hooping or the overall aesthetic superiority of daytime hooping? I dont know. I dont know. I. DONT. KNOW. Help me decide.

I really hope these pictures show up right. I never have success with this. I should note that these are all from HoopMamas on Etsy

Tie-dye with Deady Bear. So tempting but would be over budget by a dollar

Mandela - pretty!!

Mushrooms with glow in the dark!!!!



Glow in the dark

Glow in the dark $34

another tie-dye

This is one I'm leaning towards the most but its also the most expensive. Over my budge by $5

This is the other one that's pretty high on the list. But it doesn't have the glow in the dark tape.

Also you can completely customize anything using any fabric and any tape combination. So the possibilities are endless! That's a little overwhelming for me. When I start thinking about that, I get lost.

What do you guys think???

    Oh my gosh, how in the world can you choose? Um, I love the Deady Bear. Also, the very last one looks shiny. I love the sparkly tape, because it really catches the sunlight. We have one hoop with glow tape and it's not as exciting as we thought it would be. It doesn't glow all that long and just kinda sits there during the day. If you really want to light up the night, just save up for an LED.
    But these are all beautiful; you're gonna have fun with whatever you get. Let us know!

    I like the Mandela one and the blue/green glow in the dark one. All of them look great, though! DAIMERE has some great advice on what to look for.

    I like the mandela and tye-dye ones. I would take DAIMERE's advice about the tape, for sure.

    If you are going to be traveling and breaking it down a lot, I wouldn't use a figure 8 hoop. Either way, don't store it collasped if it is a figure 8. A break apart hoop is much better in that instance. Honestly the glow in the dark tapes that I've seen in person don't stay lit for long. So I really wouldn't make it higher priority. Also I am not sure if the tape holds up for a beating as much as other tapes. You could just tape some glow sticks on it real quick in that instance. And make sure you are getting the right size and fit for your body. Most beginners start with a 42" 160 PSI.

    I'd also try to pick out the ones with more gaffer than the others that don't. So my choices would be: mandela, shrooms, glow in the dark, and glow in the dark $34. Those look like they have the best gaffer for your buck. Gaffer will grip to your body better and allow you to learn tricks easier. I hope this helps and if you have any questions feel free to contact me! Happy hooping!
