1953 Hula Hoop Full Circle

A favorite toy then and now

Girls dressed in red gingham dresses and patent leather shoes playing hula hoops

A classic look and a classic toy. The pair of girls you see wearing red gingham check dresses, patent leather shoes, and white bobby socks pose for a photo shoot for the May 1953 edition of Today’s Woman magazine. Their toy of choice is the same as my toy of choice was when I was a child–a hula hoop. For that matter, a hula hoop was a favorite for my child and now it is a favorite of his child.
