Oh good to know! It seemed so stiff when I tried it, but if it'll bend than good Very Happy

I think there may be different grades. Don't some have thicker walls? The thinner walled ones are more flexible.

I bought hula hoops at the Dollar Tree for a buck each. I noticed that when I cut them, the stripes are made up of 2 different types of ribbon, so I also got lots of ribbon in the deal. I'll unravel them later.

Underneath the ribbon is semi opaque plastic which I'm assuming is made of polycarbonate- the same as yogurt containers and such. Since I am sticking them in the MM rather than outside the box I like this idea better than using PVC for now. But once I get ahold of more bamboo hoops, these guys will be history.
