If you are a beginner, and/or want the most durable tubing possible, choose 3/4″ HDPE tubing.
Please keep in mind these are just guidelines. If you are an intermediate or expert hooper, you probably know what personally works best for you, so please trust your own judgment.
Additional Information About Our Led Hula Hoops
Materials: All of our Alien Mermaid LED hula hoops are hand-made with bright long lasting LEDs and 3/4″ or 5/8″ OD smooth white HDPE or clear polypro tubing. Click here to see a video of this hoop in action by the Ruby Hooper who designed it, Bleeb Von Alien!
Construction: Our hoops are carefully constructed for durability. They also feature an inside connection with push button and off switch. No bulky outer cuff on our babies! The batteries we use are lightweight and we have carefully designed our hoops to always feel balanced.
Picture of connection is below. You will note there are two holes. Pictured is the closed position which turns the hoop on. The other button hole is the off position.
Battery Power: Each LED hula hoop operates on a single lithium ion rechargeable battery. Your hoop purchase includes one battery and a charger. We recommend that you purchase extra batteries so you can glow all night! One fully charged battery will last for approximately 1-2 hours, depending on your hoop.

Weight: While we can only estimate because each hoop is different depending on size, these hoops generally weigh between 8 and 16 ounces.
Warranty: We have extensively tested our hoops for durability, but we also include a one year warranty which covers the electronic aspects of your hoop with normal use. You will receive an information sheet with your hoop with care instructions to ensure it has a long life. Never allow your hoop to get wet or get sand or grit around the connection! We usually put a piece of tape over the hoop’s connection point to seal it closed when hooping on the beach.
Turnaround & Shipping Time: Our turnover times are always posted on the front page of our website, and it usually does not exceed 2 weeks. Shipping time is usually 2 days via USPS Priority Mail. If you would like to check the status of your order, you can message us on Facebook at any time and we will usually respond within 12 hours.
