Shoop Shoop Hula Hoop from Wham-O (1977)

Wham-O reinvigorated the hula hoop craze by adding sound! The Shoop Shoop Hula Hoop sported a new, brighter colour palette and had six ¼-in.-diameter ball bearings placed inside of it to give it a “whirry” sound.

Remember the toys and games of years past through vintage advertising – for better and for worse!
