Build Your Own Activity Hoops
I bought these to use for hula hooping. I typed in hula hoop and these came up. I was excited because I would be able to store them better than your traditional hoops. I know it said put together 5- 13" sections but I guess I didn't realize how small that was. My two year old is small for her age and the hoop is maybe big enough for her but NO older! I didn't realize you can only make one size hoop either. I thought the five was just an example- it comes with 50 pieces so it should say: makes 10 hoops about 65" around. Unfortunately the party is for one of my older children! Also I thought that since I am going to be a teacher that I could use them after the party for my classroom but after getting them, I have changed my mind. I feel I wasted my money! I AM VERY UNHAPPY WITH MY PURCHASE! This is why I should stick to stores. The connecting points are thin and loosen each time you connect them. The ones we were playing with- attaching and unattaching are already not as tight as the new ones.
