Hula Hoop- These just scream the ’50′s to me, even though they’re still popular today. In 1957 the Wham-O toy company launched a plastic hula hoop that exploded in sales over the next 3 years. The longest Hula Hoop duration record is held by Roxann Rose of the United States, who went 90 hours between 2 April and 6 April 1987. I can hula hoop for approximately 1 second. Wham-O!
