when was hula hooping invented? It was invented in the 1840's . Well that's not what people ever think about they just care about how to hula hoop or how to just make one . Its very easy but all you need is tools like hard plastic ,tiny rocks ,and metal. That's how to make on . How to hula hoop is easier than you think it is all you do is put the hula hoop on your waist, then what you do is spin it around , if it falls try again until you get it right. That's all I have to say right now bye ,bye!!!
