Get Your Kids Hooping with Molly and the Hoola Monsters #Giveaway

Susan here with a fun way to get your kids exercising through play. This giveaway post is sponsored, but as always, my opinion is my own.

This Hoop Is Magic

My girls have fallen in love with hula hooping and “hoop dance” thanks to “Molly and the Hoola Monsters” children’s hoop fitness DVD and handmade hoop.

hoola monsters dvdMOLLY AND THE HOOLA MONSTERS follows the magical story of Molly – the new kid at school – who discovers a golden tunnel that transports her to Hoolaville… a vibrant, funky village filled with super hooping creatures called Hoola Monsters.

My 9 year old Julia and 6 year old Sophia watched in awe as Molly transformed and learned to hoop dance. They grabbed their new hoops and followed through the lessons to learn to hoop dance themselves.

You couldn’t measure the cuteness factor of my little Sophia as she quickly mastered the skill of “hula hooping” from watching this DVD. Sophia had not yet known how to hula hoop at all… she’d played with hula hoops before but had never been able to get the action going. But after watching the video show her the exact movements to make, my tiny 6 year old soon had her hoop spinning like crazy.

I can’t even explain how proud she was of herself. She and Julia spent about 4 hours hula hooping that first day they got their hoops and watched the video.

The next morning Sophia jumped out of bed announcing, “I’m going to hula hoop! I didn’t used to be able to hula hoop, but now I can!”

    My oldest does. My youngest just started walking so I’d have to say no for her 😛 And yes, I think she would like to try it!

  2. Ashley Hunt says

    My 5 year old doesn’t know how to hula hoop, but ever the performer she is she’d love to learn!

  3. vickie couturier says

    I did when I was a kid but I don’t think the grandkids know how,,Ive never seen them do it

  4. Holly Lord says

    My daughter is 6 and she loves to hoop! We’ve spent quite a while at music festivals, so she knows a few hoop dance moves, but this would be so much fun!

  5. Jane says

    My 4 year old niece is learning to “hoo-dee hoop” and I’d love to give her the DVD for her birthday!

  6. Sunnymay says

    My kids are all adults and they know how to Hula Hoop. There was a jump-roping club who also did hula hoops in the 5th and 6th grade. They also demonstrated for the K-4 grades how to do it and how much fun and work it was. My artistic daughter has taken classes in Hula Hoop as a new mom and finds that it really helped get her back in shape and uses lots of calories. She hoop dances already and her 2 year old son likes to watch and “participate”.

  7. Christine Jensen says

    My kids don’t really know how to hula hoop, but they would probably have tons of fun learning :)

    My daughter is learning to hoop! I have heard what a wonderful workout it is, and bought a professional hoop. I can’t seem to keep the hoop up. So, I guess we will learn together! Fun!

  13. Georgia Beckman says

  14. alison gibb says

    This brings back a lot of childhood memories. I used to love hula hooping. It would probably kill me if I tried it today!
