Light Headed Beds are the latest and greatest addition to our Lifetime online store. These new Light Headed Beds are a delightful innovation that allows you to truly customize your child's bedroom decor. The headboard of this bed has been designed with a lighted LED panel inset that can be customized with HeadLightz graphic images.

Over the years, we’ve told you about how our blow-molded products are made, and how our metals are powder-coated to protect them, but how does the whole process work, anyway?  I certainly didn't know before I started working for Lifetime.  But, here at the Freeport Center, all your products begin from scratch.  When I was first hired, I had the chance to tour the entire facility. And it was probably one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen.  No kidding.  Did you know that in our blow-molding facility, our High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plastic starts out as beads that are pumped from the trains to the building silos?  The beads are melted and poured into the blow-molding forms. When the formed part comes out, Lifetime employees remove excess plastic and prepare them for a... More

In this post, I wanted to share with you more information about our new Grabcessories™ products. We've all seen safety grab bars. So, what makes Grabcessories™ unique? First, they look GREAT!  Honestly, they do!  Our new product line is designed to be both beautiful and functional - seamlessly integrating as actual bathroom décor while providing the convenience of safety accessories.  If you read between all that marketing mumbo-jumbo, it means your bathroom will still look like a home bathroom and not a hospital or nursing home. The second thing that makes Grabcessories™ unique is that they currently are the only safety grab bar product on the market offering a complete line of coordinating bathroom safety accessories.  Most manufactures only offer one bar fo...

A while ago, we shared on this blog that Lifetime was adding a new Health and Wellness category. Health and Wellness is a category of products designed to, well, keep you healthy and well. This Health and Wellness category now offers a complete line of products called Grabcessories™. Grabcessories™ are safety grab bars mixed with beautifully designed bathroom fixtures. They’re designed to be attractive so your bathroom won’t look like a hospital, and they come in two finishes: Chrome and Brushed Nickel. These grab bars help with limited mobility while in the bathroom. There is a bar for each area where extra safety might be needed. For example, we have a bar that “wraps” around the tub or shower faucet, providing stability when showering or a place to grab hold when entering or exitin... More

I am very excited about Lifetime’s new Tent Trailer. Not so much because it is a tent trailer (although that part is very cool especially for the camping family) but I am excited because of its diversity. After years of looking and deciding, my wife and I purchased our first home this year. We purchased the home brand new and, let me tell you, there is a lot of yard work to be done. We have tons to do to get the yard looking its best. We have decided to add decorative rock, as well as sprinklers and sod. This new Lifetime Tent Trailer will be perfect to haul them all. Trees and shrubbery are a must. We haven’t figured out what kind of trees we want to get, but its nice to know I have away to pick them up from the nursery when we decide. Wait a minute. Hauling rock, sod, and trees in our tent trailer? Yes! See, t... More

Over the past year, we've shared with you information and videos about our new Lifetime Tru-Motion™ Walking Cane - and even about awards the cane has won. I am thrilled to tell you that because of the success with our cane, Lifetime has decided to launch an entire line of home safety accessories!  Right now on our website, you'll find the Tru-Motion™ Walking Cane in our "Other Innovations" category. But, very soon, you'll see another new product category added on our website called "Health and Wellness" which will be the new home for the cane and our upcoming new home safety accessories like bath and towel safety grab bars. We plan to develop a complete line of products to help the baby boomer generation stay active and live in their homes as long as possible.  So, what will make our products different ... More

A 50 Year Achievement
The Mercedes-Benz dealership in Salt Lake City celebrated its fifty year anniversary earlier this month. My wife, Jenny was asked to assist with this event. The celebration was an important event for not only the local dealership, but to Mercedes-Benz as well.In the automobile business it is uncommon for one dealership with the original franchise owner to stay in business with the same car franchise for over fifty years. The award presentation featured a beautifully designed trophy, sculpted with metal in the form of a classic Mercedes-Benz automobile. After the presentation, a lunch was served for those in attendance. Jenny couldnt help but notice that the tables and chairs that were set up for the event were of course made by Lifetime. They used Lifetime 6 foot banquet tables covered with white linens and floral arrangeme...
Gliding with Grandpa
Still searching for that perfect Christmas gift to give your parents, grandparents,or your spouse? Here's an idea - how about a cozy Lifetime Glider Bench? Last year, I gave my Dad the Lifetime Glider Bench for Christmas. I purchased the original Lifetime Glider Bench because it matched the Lifetime Picnic Table they have in their back yard. (The Lifetime Glider Bench is also available in a Wood Alternative version that looks like real wood slats.) My Dad put his new Lifetime Glider Bench under a huge tree in the backyard at his lake house so he can sit under the shade and watch the lake. This summer when my family went home to visit, we all took turns at some point relaxing and gliding on the bench to watch the soothing waves on the lake, the crackling fire pit, or a friendly game of Cornhole. But, my favorite use was when...
New Limited Edition Purple Freestyle XL!
This spring, our watersports department has done something we never have before! We are coming out with a limited edition paddleboard. Sure, this will be the Freestyle XL board we all know and love but there is something that makes it special; its Purple! Not only is this our first limited edition kayak or paddleboard, it is also our first purple one! In total, there will be 325 Purple Freestyle XLs out there for the lucky few who can get there hands on one. I am personally a huge fan of purple, and I think this board looks great. It has all the great characteristics of our other color boards; stability, buoyancy, padding, bungee straps and two fins. The dark purple color really blends well with the black bungees and confetti white and black foam. It really pops and looks incredibly stylish. If your wife, daughter, best fri...
