Born on This Day in 1958…..the Hula Hoop!
OK, lets get this off the table right now. No, I could never do this.
Now.... happy birthday to the Hula Hoop. It was one of the biggest fads, rages, games of the late 1950s. It was born in 1958, was cheap and was hours of fun.
Here are some interesting Hula Hoop facts;
Longest hoop duration: 74 hours by Aaron Hibbs of Columbus, Ohio (2009)
Most hoops twirled at once: 160 (OMG!)
The largest hoop ever twirled: 16-feet in diameter (2010)
So tell me....how good at Hula Hooping were you (be honest)
