This giveaway has ended.  Are you trying to find a fun, new way to stay cool this summer and maybe get some exercise at the same time?  Well, look no more.  Last week on our Facebook page, I posted this close-up picture of one of our products and told our fans that if they correctly guessed the product, we'd give one away this week!  We had several people guess it was a kayak.  (Close, but not quite.)  But, lucky for you, we also had a few fans who knew it was a picture of a Lifetime Freestyle™ Paddleboard!  In fact, this picture is showing one of the handles used to adjust the fins - a feature unique to Lifetime Paddleboards.   Want to know another unique feature of Lifetime's new stand-up paddleboard?  We include a paddle!

One of the coolest things about working for a manufacturing company is that I get to make products that people love and use in their everyday lives. Having our headquarters in Clearfield, Utah gives Lifetime the opportunity to use our products and resources throughout the community. I am always happy when we can help someone out. We recently had the opportunity to do just that. This basketball story below is from our friend Anthony, from the Department of Corrections facility in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am grateful to Anthony for sharing this experience and hope they are enjoying the new basketball system! “I bought a hoop in 2002 for our officers to use as a way to get in some exercise while at the office. We had no idea at the time it would transform into what it did. We used the hoop for some great interoffice ... More

Due to the popularity of the Lifetime Kids Dome Climber with Lifetime Facebook fans and the fact that it's sporting our patriotic colors, we're going to offer $50 off the regular Lifetime online store price during the month of July. If you're looking for something unique that you won't find in all of the other backyards in your neighborhood, you'll appreciate the Lifetime Dome Climber. Kids can't resist the fun geometric design. (Personally, I wouldn't be able to resist covering it with tarps to create a "yurt" when the kids want to sleep out on summer nights, or an "igloo" for wintertime fun.) A versatile backyard toy for day or night, summer or winter! The climbing dome is 5 ft tall, 10 ft wide, and constructed from powder-coated steel to resist rusting and ... More

We hope all of you have a safe and relaxing July 4th holiday weekend…and take a little extra time to look for products with the "Made in USA" logo.  And, if you haven't heard it yet, enjoy Toby's song he performed at the 2011 CMT Music Awards ...   2011 CMT Music Awards - Made in America - Toby Keith - Toby Keith Videos More

Will It Tip? Testing the Stability of a Lifetime Manta Kayak
In my last blog post, I showed you how a tandem Lifetime Manta Kayak compares in size to other kayaks. Today, I want to show you a little about the stability of this kayak. Last month my family tested the Manta Kayak for several days on Lake Erie. When I say family, I mean everyoneme, my husband, my kids, my nieces, my brother, my uncles, and my mom and dad. As you can see in the photos, we paddled the Manta in pretty much every weight combination and seating combination possible. The Lifetime Manta Kayak has a 500lb weight capacity and we tested it to its limits. We paddled it with one person, two people, three people and even four people! And, guess what? It didn't tip!The Lifetime Manta Kayak,orYellow Bananaas we now call it,is unbelievably stable. Even when one person would get on or off the kayak with others still sittin...
Lifetime Garden Beds Are BPA Free
Some of you have asked if the plastic panels on the Lifetime Raised Garden Bed contain BPA (Bishphenol_A). Good question! BPA is a plasticizer that is used in the manufacturing of PVC (Polyvinyl chloride, recycling type 3 7) and other polycarbonate plastics to make them flexible. It is used mostly in flexible PVC piping, toys, plastic bottles, and the lining of some canned goods. In 2008, BPA became controversial as research indicated that it may be dangerous to our healthespecially to babies. The US Food and Drug Administration has now taken steps to reduce human exposure to BPA in our food supply and food containers. The good news is thatLifetime's plastic garden bed panels and the frost coverDO NOT contain BPA. They are a Green Product. We use high-density polyethylene plastic (HDPE, recycling code type 2), and non toxic...
