Fight childhood obesity! Get hooping now for great parent/child fitness and just plain fun. Canyon children's and youth hula hoops are the result of years of working with children of different ages and sizes to make a hoop that is rugged, and the right size for your pre-teen or larger child. These hoops are made from 3/4" 125 psi tubing that will stand up to the punishment of many hours of hooping, pulling, spinning, and whatever else your child's imagination can come up with. Canyon youth and child hoops are designed to last. Children's hoops are approximately 34" in diameter and the youth hoops are 36" in diameter. The hoops weigh approximately 14 ounces and 16 ounces respectively. Perfect for kids and for experienced adults who want a smaller, lighter, and more responsive hoop. We also make lighter hoops for children in 1/2" O.D. tubing sold under the name of Dance and Performance Hoops - "Ultra Flex".
It is difficult to predict the exact age or weight of the child but you can be sure that these hoops will work to make it easy to learn and fun to use. I recommend the child hoop for your children up to about age 7. If your child is a bit taller or heavier the youth hoop is recommended. Children between 7 and 10 are about right for the youth hoop. We recommend the small adult exercise or dance hoop for your pre-teens and larger children. It is estimated that 31 percent of U.S. children between the ages of 10 to 17 are overweight or obese. You can help your child and yourself by finding an exercise that you can do with your children that is fun and benefits your health and wellbeing for the rest of your, and your childs life.
