Rainbow PolyPro Explosion

6 Apr

I recently received a big ‘ol box of rainbow on my doorstep…rainbow polypro hoops that is! Lara at Superhooper sent them to me to try out and I couldn’t be more thrilled with them.

My favorite part is the “friction-fit” connection…which means no rivets, screws, etc. So easy to take apart and put together. I love that the color is actually IN the plastic…so there is no tape to scuff. I can throw these around all day and they still look amazing! I can even take the slew of them to the park and not worry when two 8 year old boys claim them as their own for the entire time we are there. Yes, it happened. πŸ™‚

I think I may be in love. Seriously.

These hoops feel SO NICE. Nice to touch. Nice to spin. Nice nice nice. If you’re still wondering if you should “go polypro”…check out Lara’s info here. You can buy the rainbow colors here. At the time of this post, they are on sale!

However, you might want to wait because we are going to be doing a giveaway for an entire prism pack (38″ and under)…woooooo!! That’s a $229 value! Stay tuned for the announcement in the next couple of days.

I made a little video of me and my rainbow. I was in the living room with very limited space (and this resulted in a little chandelier mishap towards the end…oops!)…but when hoop inspiration strikes, you gotta go with the flow πŸ™‚

The Damage:

Thanks again Lara…for the hoops and for all you do for the hooping community!
Be sure to check Lara’sΒ  Hooping Family Tree Project if you haven’t already!

*side note: these are sized at 34″ and have a full sanding (no interior tape).

    Sara, I am super impressed! You look great in the hoop and you’re having fun (the most important part!). Those poly-pro’s are so pretty, I’ll be taking a look at them.

    yeH! I love when you post videos! It was just 9 months ago I saw your first video and decided I had to HOOP! I practice at night after the kids are in bed (and I’ve broken a lot of glass along the way too!) Your hooping has transformed so much. I lOVE your flow and look forward to the day I can hook all my tricks up into a flow. For now, I just practice my few tricks and wish for a friend to hoop with.
    thanks for inspiring me so much over the last 9 months. Hooping make me happy down in my soul.

    Applying for the rainbow of hoops giveaway. So sorry about your chandelier – you seemed to take it in your usual calm stride. The Rainbow Love video was inspiring – great to feel your flow. My current “trick” reflects the dancing partner quality of a hoop. In the swing of things, I hold the hoop static at waist-level and hand-over-hand go around the outside of the hoop. It takes arm strength to hold the hoop still…and grace to look smooth doing it.

    Ah, forgot to mention. Winning the hoops will be a special treat – reminding me of hooping as a child in the early 60’s and topping out at waist-hooping 13 at one time. That’s all the hoops we had in the neighborhood. It will be a thrill to hoop with a Prism Pack.

    These are so awesome. Iam going to try this. Just as soon as I win me a hoop. LOL

    I’ve been hooping for less than a year. I was encouraged to hoop with my best friend and we went out and got some plastic tubing and made our first hula hoops together :] It was fun and made me feel like I got off to a good start with hooping, having made my own hoop to practice with. I’ve been teaching myself moves and learning from my friend and others and have fallen in love with it. My current desire is to build a fire hoop, my most recent achievement was learning to hoop around my ankles, and my current goal is to learn to do vertical shoulder hooping. :][:

    Hay I was wondering if u knew where to purchase the colored ppe tubing? Do u know of any tutorials that show how to make them without rivets?

    So, I just wanted to say that I love how much fun you have hooping, and that’s what first inspired me to pick the hoop up!! I’d always seen girls at festivals hooping, but thought I couldn’t do it or that maybe it wasn’t for me, and then I saw your first hoop video. And it inspired me because you were having so much fun, so I bought a hoop and have been doing it since(except in the winter since I don’t have indoor space to do it). Anyways, it’s so much fun and I never, ever thought I’d love it so much, but I do! And it’s helped me get through some tough times this past year. I’ve found healing through hooping. πŸ™‚ So thanks for being you and sharing and inspiring! Now I really want to try polypro!

    Ha! My oldest tiny girl wants to be a hooper, too. She watches your hooping videos and loves them so much. AND, she did a similar thing to a very similar chandelier recently. I’m not going to tell her that! She’ll never let the ‘in the house’ wildness end!
