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 Birthday Cake LED mini hula hoops are hand-made with 9-12 (depending on diameter) super bright strobing LEDs and 3/4″ or 5/8″ OD milky white HDPE tubing or clear polypro tubing (your choice!).
Construction: Our hoops are carefully constructed for durability and to eliminate rattling. They also feature a smooth inside connection with push button. No bulky outer cuff on our babies! Also, the batteries we use are quite light and we have carefully built our hoops to ensure balance.
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. Click here to purchase extra batteries!
Weight: While we can only estimate because each hoop is different depending on tubing size and diameter, 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, but typically it will not exceed 2-3 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.
