Are you still trying to figure what to get a Tween or a "kid who has everything"  on your Christmas list? Trust me, I know how you feel.  As a mom of an 8-year-old, I completely understand how tough it is to come up with gift ideas for those ages when they aren't really into characters or toys anymore.  But, if you have a child who loves being active in the water, I have a perfect idea for you - a Lifetime Youth Kayak! My family tested the pink Lifetime Wave Kayak this summer and we absolutely loved it!  Between my kids and my nieces, we had ages 4, 8, 9, and 11 using it.  And, I even tried it, too!  I must say, we were amazed at how quickly all of the kids got the hang of paddling and maneuvering when they had a kayak and paddle their own size.  We have sit-inside adult kayaks that th...

It's that time of year again when kids start making their wish lists for Santa… and parents everywhere start stressing over how Santa is going to manage to fit those gifts through the chimney and under the tree without being caught! Don't worry, at Lifetime we completely understand!  Since we make huge playsets that are on the top of a lot of kids' lists, we've had a few chats with Santa to figure out how we can help him and his elves get these playsets to the all kids on his "nice" list. After talking with Santa, we came up with a plan. This year, if your kids ask for a Lifetime Monkey Adventure Playset,  there is a way to easily fit it under your tree!  We have already worked with Santa's elves to make a video that your kids can unwrap and watch on Christmas morning to see their present. Here's how ... More

Hold onto your paddles kayak fans because we have some news that is really going to make some waves!  As you know, last year Lifetime started manufacturing kayaks and paddleboards.  This new product line has been a tremendous success for us and an area where we've seen lots of consumer interest and demand.

This past Sunday night, Lifetime Products was featured on Utah's KSL news as part of an in-depth TV story about the business economy in Utah.  The story kicked off a week-long series focusing on the economy in Utah.  It was an informative story focusing on job growth in Utah and the appeal of Utah for businesses.  The story shows an inside look at Lifetime's factory and includes an interview with Lifetime President Richard Hendrickson inside the Lifetime Store.

Anatomy of a Shed
Saturday was a winterizing day for me. We got about eight inches of snow last weekend, so I figured I better take advantage of the beautiful fall day and get the shed cleaned out and then packed up with all of our patio playthings. As you can see from the photos, my shed is absolutely packed. I guess that's what a shed is supposed to look like, isn't it? I had a unique opportunity of being a part of the team thatdeveloped the shed- from start to finish. I remember when it came up as an idea for a new product, I remember reading through the miles and miles of research about it and I remember seeing the prototypes as they came and went. I know more about these sheds than any other Lifetime product, and I am exceedingly proud of them. I also bought one of the first sheds we produced. According to the serial numbers and julian ...
Who Dunnit?
My oh my. What a weekend! My husband and I hosted a party at our house for his squadron on Saturday night. We always like to make things interesting and entertaining so we decided to host a Murder Mystery party for our 39 guests. Never been to a Murder Mystery party? More details on how it works in a minute... The theme of our Murder Mystery party was a Class of '85 High School Reunion. Everyone had to dress like their character would have in the 80s. Wow, talk about some, like, totally awesome costumes! The women pulled out all the classics including jelly bracelets, leggings, shoulder pads, and cans of Aquanet hairspray to tease their hair. (Ah, the good 'ol days.) Not to be outdone, the men donned layered shirts, Miami Vice suits, acid washed jeans, and rat tails. Hillarious! And, if the costume reminiscing wasn't enough,...
