Best Answer

The hula hoop is an ancient invention - no modern company and no single inventor can claim that they invented the first hula hoop. The Greeks used hooping as a form of exercise.

Older hoops have been made from metal, bamboo, wood, grasses, and even vines. However, modern companies "reinvented" their own versions of the hula hoop using unusual materials, for example; plastic hula hoops with added bits of glitter and noise makers, and hoops that are collapsible.
