Hoop Questions

Hula hooping is fun, gets your heart rate up, and improves flexibility and strength! Hooping is not just an ab workout, but a total body workout! Hooping has been proven to burn over 400 calories per hour by the American Council on Exercise. Pick up your hoop and feel the burn!  

Besides the great physical benefits, hula hooping is a fun hobby! It is amazing for your mental health to have something that fulfills you with no pressure of making other people happy! Hooping, just like any other sport or hobby, can be anything you need it to be - big or small, a tool you can use to center yourself before or after a long day, a stress reliever, or a healthy activity you enjoy with your friends and family. 

Do you know how to waist hoop already? That is typically my go to question, as when you think of hula hooping, you generally think waist hooping. Are you wanting to learn more of the basics with on-body hooping or are you wanting to learn more tricks/techy moves?

If you're wanting to learn waist hooping and more of the basics: I would suggest an HDPE beginner hoop! I love 3/4 HDPE for beginners (or those that want to get an exercise hoop) because it is robust, durable, & just the right weight to help build muscle memory. I would go with a range 32"-38" inches. If you're taller or curvier or want a bigger exercise hoop, feel free to size up a few inches! Head over to our beginner hoop section to pick your hoop!

If you're wanting to skip the basics and learn more tricky/techy & dance moves: I would highly recommend a Polypro hoop! Polypro is lightweight and bouncy, resulting in quicker movement. 3/4 is thicker, about the thickness of your thumb, and 5/8 is thinner, about the thickness of your pinky. If you're wanting something more sturdy, go with 3/4 (I personally love 3/4). If you want something super duper light and bouncy, or have tiny hands, go with 5/8. Head over to our Colored Polypro section and check out all the pretty options!

Current build time for custom hoops is 3-5 days. Fire hoop orders may take up to 5-10 days, depending on order queue.

I love making custom one of a kind hoops! If you don't see what you're looking for, message me and let's make it happen! I love expanding my shop - contact me if there's a hoop color you want & I will be happy to get it for you!

We always measure OD (outer diameter). If you would like us to measure ID, leave a note at checkout with your desired size. 

1. Let your hoop lay flat & uncoiled for 1-2 hours before connecting & playing. In the sun or a warm spot (near a space heater or vent, etc) is perfect! This is the best right after opening & receiving your hoop! 
2. Let hoop hang unconnected from your hoop hanger, a doorknob or other hanger - let gravity do the work!  Hang it opposite of the connection
3. Stand with your hoop upright and roll the curvy parts on the ground in back & forth motion.
Polypro hoops may need an additional few hours to uncoil and breathe, depending on size. HDPE hoops take shape pretty quickly after a good hoop sesh.
As always, your hoop will take shape the more you play with it! Happy hooping!¬†‚̧

Polypro hoops are light, bouncy, & super responsive. These hoops are amazing for all types of tricks & dance. Polypro hoops come in a variety of sizes, diameters, & colors! Great for all types of hoop styles: single hoop for dance, performance hoops, minis, juggling, & tech.
Ideal sizes: 25"-34" OD
minis: 18"-24" OD

HDPE is more rigid, robust, and durable, making it great for beginner hoopers. These hoops have just the right weight & density to help build muscle memory. If you know how to waist hoop or trying to downsize from your PE hoop and want to learn more off-body tricks, go with an HDPE hoop. Any of our taped hoops can be made with HDPE tubing! 
Ideal sizes: 30" - 36" OD

PE tubing is most commonly used for beginner & fitness hoops. PE hoops are great for those who have never picked up a hoop and want to learn on-body core hooping. The weight makes it a great fitness hoop to get your body moving and heart rate up!
To find your PE hoop size: the ideal hoop size is one that reaches your belly button or chest - roughly 38" - 46" outer diameter, depending on your height. The bigger the hoop, the more you can slow down & groove!

Thank you for understanding.

YES. Signature confirmation is now an option at checkout. Signature confirmation means you will need to sign for your package with I.D. when your item is delivered. If you are not home when your items are delivered, you will need to take your tracking number to your post office to pick your items up. Typically USPS leaves pink slips including details - sometimes they redeliver or you can pick up your items 
This way ensures that you get your items.

YES!
Canada orders will ship thru UPS Worldwide Expedited. It is more pricey however it arrives faster & is more reliable than USPS International. 

Shipments to Canada are subject to Canadian import duties, sales taxes (general and provincial). and UPS brokerage fees It is YOUR responsibility to know the amount of these taxes and duties. FestivalTreasures will NOT accept return of refused packages and will NOT issue refunds on orders to Canada.

WHEN TO PAY: When your package enters customs in Canada, UPS will call you and tell you what duties, taxes and brokerage fees are due. They will ask you then if you want to pay them with a credit card in advance. If you don't, you'll have to pay an additional "COD" fee upon delivery.

Of course! Again, international orders will ship through UPS Worldwide Expedited. It is more reliable in my experience, making the cost worth it. 

We are not responsible for customs/import fees. It is the responsibility of the customer to RESEARCH and UNDERSTAND the import duties put forth by their respective country.  We DO NOT research this for you ahead of time and will not notify you of what you will owe by the customs office in your country.  

International customers - If shipping costs more than what you paid, your order may be cancelled & refunded and/or we will reach out to you to receive the difference.

FestivalTreasures is not responsible for wrong addresses. Refunds or replacements will not be issued by FT on items that are returned or misdelivered.
If your package is returned to us, you will need to pay for the additional shipping charges.

PLEASE double check to make sure you have put in the correct shipping address. We are NOT responsible for packages being delivered to the wrong address. If you have made a mistake, please contact us immediately.

About Restocking Fees:
25% restocking fee on day & fire hoops may be issued. No restocking fee on kevlar sleeves or unused wicks. Since most of our products are custom-made-to-order, each one is completely unique. Once returned, a custom prop can sit around indefinitely waiting for someone who wants those exact specs. The restocking fee allows us to reduce the price to help incentivize someone else to bring it home and love it.  

Due to the custom nature of each order, exchanges are not accepted at this time.
