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 ...

What is Blow Molding?
Blow molding. You hear us say it over-and-over again when we talk about our products. But, what does that really mean? In case you don't know, today I'll give you a quick explanation and show you a few photos to, hopefully, help you understand the process of blow molding a little better. Every plastic product that Lifetime makes starts as white plastic pellets, like in this picture. These pellets are hauled in on train cars to our factory. We usenearly 400train cars of pellets per year! The plastic pellets are then pumped to our outdoor silos and then to the building silos. (If you live near our factory in Utah, you may have noticed a new Lifetime logo towering in the skies. The logo is on our newest silo that stores these plastic pellets.) The plastic pellets are then heated by pressure and colored pellets are added at thi...
Lifetime’s Community Service Gardening Project Yields Over 14,000 Pounds of Donated Produce
Man, how time flies! Its been almost six months since our annual service project with the Utah Botanical Center. If you arent aware, every year around one thousand Lifetime employees give back to the local community by participating in our community service project. Its something I look forward to each year and this year was no different; we helped clean and beautify the Utah State University Botanical Center in Kaysville, Utah. Ive had the chance to stop by a couple times since the service project in May and was amazed at how much we accomplished. I also spoke to Dave Anderson from the USU Botanical Center to get a quick update on our main project at the service project, the Food Bank Garden we planted. The garden is used to teach individuals about gardening and the harvested items are donated to the local Food Bank. Anders...
Dear Family – a Letter from Dad
Bill Cosby had it right. Yes, many of us dads are the fun ones, the jokesters, and the dress up dolls. There are fathers all over the world who get things they cant use and . . . dont want. With Fathers Day coming up I wanted to offer some suggestions for things that Dad actually wants: Want Deck Box. Give dad a Lifetime Deck Box so he has somewhere to quickly put away all of the kids toys left on the lawn. Keep them safe so he doesn't hit them with the lawn mower anymore. So, really . . . its a gift that keeps giving. Dont Want Another light-up, pink, paisley, or superhero tie. Its just another burp rag for the baby to spit up on. Want New shed to store all the yard tools in.You know you all keep telling us to put the tools away.Dont Want Cute stuffed animal driver cover to hang on his golf bag. In case you havent forg...
