I just learned some interesting facts about hula hoops! Did you know:
Children around the world have been twirling hoops for centuries, including about 3,000 years ago in Egypt. The hoops were made of grape vines and thrown along the ground with sticks.
“Hooping” was popular in 14th century England, but some doctors blamed it for back injuries and heart attacks!
The word “hula” was added to “hoop” in the 18th century after sailors who visited Hawaii saw a similarity between hula dancing and hooping.
The current world record for the length of time hula hooping is 90 hours.
The current world record for the most hula hoops twirled at the same time by the same person is 100 hoops. Ouch!
PingPong the panda loves to hula dance, but will try some hula hooping later this year.
Thank you to Wikipedia for the information on hula hoops.
