Christmas is over, the presents have been opened, and you still have one more week to entertain the kids before they head back to school!  Dreading the boredom that's sure to hit soon? Being cooped up inside during the cold winter months can make kids (and parents) go stir crazy.  If you’ve run out of new play ideas to try, pull out your Lifetime folding table and read on.   I've put together a list of easy ideas that kids can do with each other, or the entire family can do together. And, no batteries or expensive toys and gadgets are required…it’s just good old fashioned fun!  You’ll soon discover that with a little imagination a folding table can be much more than just a simple table!  1. Build a fort.  Kids love to have their own “secret&rdquo...

From all of us at Lifetime Products, may you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and a safe and happy holiday season! More

Are you planning on staying up late on Christmas Eve to help Santa assemble the gift he bought from Lifetime Products?  Hopefully, Lifetime's instruction manual will answer any questions you may have.  However, if you do get stuck in a rut, be sure to check out the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page on www.lifetime.com before you send Santa stomping back to his workshop!  Whether you're assembling a basketball hoop, wheelbarrrow,  or shed, we've got a list of customers' most popular questions including where to find your model number, what to use to fill a basketball base, or how to remove the label from your table!  We even have all of our assembly instructions online, just in case you accidentally threw your copy away with the boxes and wrapping paper.  If you can't find your answer o...

Well, winter is officially upon us.   Now that you finally (or hopefully) have all of your summer backyard accessories stored, did you once again find yourself running out of places to stuff all of your patio cushions and pool supplies?  Yes?  Thought so.  Well, then  it's time to stop buying yet another tiny storage container to add to your collection already cluttering your deck.  Treat yourself to a super-sized deck box instead!  Lifetime's new 130-gallon deck box is huge!  (So, quite frankly, if you've only got a tiny place you want to put a deck box, this isn't for you.)  But, don't just take our word for it.  Consumers Digest awarded the Lifetime Deck Box a Best Buy award in September 2009, stating "This unit delivers the most storage capacity of any deck box and i...

If you’re family is like mine, you’ve got some real basketball fans in the house.  Instead of just watching games on TV during basketball season, I try to get my kids and neighbors in on the action with neighborhood basketball tournaments. Whether you’re playing “H-O-R-S-E” or a simple game of one-on-one, there’s just something about a basketball goal that demands for friends to get together and have some fun. You could play family vs family, girls vs boys, or even adults vs kids (just be careful—if the kids win, they will never let you live it down!). Get your game started on an adjustable-height basketball system from Lifetime Products—that way, you can lower the hoop, so even younger kids can be all-stars. To celebrate the championship game, you could even give away h... More

1.  The KidsSure, kids love to get new toys for their Christmas.  But more than that, most toddlers like things that are “just like Mom and Dad’s”!  Give them a Lifetime Children’s Picnic Table so they can sit and eat at a table just their size and they’ll soon be begging for dinnertime!  And, just like the adult version, the plastic top and metal frame fold flat to hang on the wall for easy storage during the winter months.  Oh, did we mention it’s stain resistant? Even permanent marker, spaghetti sauce, or grape juice won’t stain this table!   2. The TeacherLooking for a unique gift for your child’s teacher that she can use both in her classroom and at home?  Give her a Lifetime Personal Table.  It’s inexpensive and with the thre... More

1. The HostessKnow a woman who has a knack for hosting dashing parties?  Lend her an extra hand and give her the Lifetime 4-Foot Adjustable Height Table.  This table is a hostess’ dream.  It’s lightweight so she can easily set it up in advance by herself.  Use it at the table height for extra adult dining space, set it at its lowest height for the kiddie table at family gatherings or birthday parties, or use it at the tall buffet height for a convenient and portable serving table.  2.  The Craft QueenShe can sew, she can scrapbook, she can arrange flowers, she can paint…you name it and she can make it.  Give her a Lifetime 5-Foot Fold-in-Half Table and she’ll call it Craft Central Station.  This table has just the right amount of room to spread out all of ...

Kids' Picnic Table Gets New Color(less)!
So, I have to fess up. Lifetime makes a kids picnic table, but I dont own one. To make matters worse, I own a Step 2 picnic table instead. And, I actually bought my kids picnic table AFTER I worked for Lifetime Products and knew firsthand the great quality in all products from Lifetime. Oh, stop it! I can already hear my former co-workers shouting why, why, why? as they read this. I purchased the table for my sons 2nd birthday. (Great present idea, BTW!) At the time, we lived in Phoenix where we had a tiny backyard with an in-ground pool and a piece of grass that was smaller than our master bathroom...no joke. Everyones backyard in Phoenix is surrounded by a 6 cement block fence...how cozy, huh?!? Anyway, with such a small lot and a pool taking up half of it, I didnt want the rest of the yard to be mistaken for a daycare wi...

New Lifetime Shed Has More Windows and Vertical Siding
We have been busy over the past year developing a new shed. The new Lifetime 8'x 10' shed capitalizes on the experience we have gained from our previous sheds and brings some great new features. If you are familiar with our sheds, you will notice the overall look of this new shed is different. One of the most noticeable differences is the shed walls now have a vertical siding look. Next difference? Windows! We do extensive market research with customers and you told us you like windows. So, we listened to your feedback and added even more windows by putting some in our newly designed doors. Windows allow light into the shed and give it a nice look. The operable window in the sidewall allows airflow so if you are working in the shed you can stay cool. Another difference in this new shed is the roof pitch is higher. This giv...
