This kayak season we are stepping up our game!  Exciting right?  Most people have seen our many sit-on-top and fishing models, but this year we have gone in a whole new direction! I would like to introduce our newest member of the kayak family, the Lifetime Payette 116!  This is our first sit-inside kayak design and it is sure to knock your water socks off!  It comes in at 9’8” and is has the perfect mix of stability and speed.  The sleek design makes it a bit faster than other kayaks that are similar in length without compromising the stability you are accustom to in a Lifetime Kayak!  Think “best of both worlds”: speed of a longer kayak, stability of a shorter kayak.  The built -n seat and seat back make it comfortable while the molded-in carry handles make fo...

It seems like most of the country is enjoying unseasonably warm temperatures lately. And, it's giving a lot of people a serious case of Spring fever.  People are out mowing yards, watering lawns, cleaning beds, and even planting gardens.  Now, Lorri S. from Roseburg, Oregon will soon be gardening too -- using her new Lifetime Raised Garden Bed Kit that she won as the lucky random winner of our March giveaway!  Congratulations! The majority of you who entered our giveaway said you do not currently use a raised garden bed but you are interested in trying one to see how they work.  After all, saving time, money, effort and space makes gardening sound much easier! (And, with the Lifetime Raised Garden Bed Kit, you can have it assembled and ready to grow in less than one hour!)  So, for those of... More

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 health—especially 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 that Lifetime's plastic garden bed panels and the frost cover DO NOT contain BPA. They are a “Green Product”. We use high-density polyethylene plastic (HDPE,... More

Do you live in Utah and have kids who would love to be in a store photo shoot?  Then mark your calendars and make plans to attend the Riverdale Lifetime Store Grand Re-Opening because we'll be celebrating all this week in a big way! The Riverdale Lifetime Store closed on Christmas Eve for an extensive expansion and complete store remodel. When we say remodel, we mean it!  The store acquired an additional 1,700 square-feet of indoor showroom area and expanded its outdoor display space by 3,500 square-feet.  Plus, we tore down every single wall, changed the floor, and added an additional POS terminal.  And, now we are ready for you to come see it! The ribbon cutting ceremony and store opening will take place tomorrow, Tuesday, March 20 at 9 a.m. with the official Grand Re-Opening Celebration even... More

This giveaway has ended.  Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day.  And, as you know, tradition is to wear green.  But, rather than wear green, we thought it would be more fun to give something green instead.  Our Facebook fans had some really great green guesses yesterday including some we didn't even think of!  Money, green kayaks, and Earthtone playsets were all great guesses.  However, we were thinking something along the less traditional green lines… like a Lifetime Raised Garden Bed!  Ok, so maybe it's not actually green in color. (Although there is a little green on the cover. Does that count?) But, you can fill a Lifetime Raised Garden Bed with lots of beautiful green vegetables and it can help you live a more "green" lifestyle.   Ok, ok, kind of a stretch, we admi...

Remember being young and banned to the “kiddie” table at family gatherings? Now with our new table, you are going to wish you were still a kid. The new  Lifetime Kids Oval Picnic Table takes all the creative features of our adult-sized tables – easy to clean, lightweight, folding for storage –  and miniaturizes it.  After all, what kid doesn't want to have stuff just like Mom and Dad's? The Kids Oval Picnic Table folds completely flat for storage. And, don't worry, moms - it looks nice so it will won’t distract from the hours spent on making the perfect table setting. We have been using our kids picnic table a lot at our house. It goes easily from the indoors to outdoors. Because it’s made of the same material as our adult picnic tables, we let the kids color...

With the warm weather starting to appear, it's the perfect time to start thinking about sprucing up your outdoor living space.  Adding an outdoor eating/entertaining area is always an inviting idea.  If you don't have a lot of space, but still want to add some cozy charm to your patio, deck, or porch, our newest product is a great solution. The new Lifetime 3-Piece Bistro Set is, I think, one of our best looking tables yet. It is made from a type of polystyrene material that is strong, water- and fade-proof, looks like wood, but is not high maintenance like real wood furniture can be.  It’s a nice round table with two chairs that is great for eating outdoors on the patio. The frame is powder-coated aluminum, so it’s lightweight and won’t rust in the elements. Once winter comes back, the ... More

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 high... More

Lifetime's EcoHousing Initiative - Mass-Produced Shelters for Disaster Relief
Two weeks ago, Lifetime unveiled its latest product - the EcoHouse. Just so you know, this isnt our normal type of product that is available for consumers to purchase in retail stores. Nope, the Lifetime EcoHouse will be manufactured and distributed to provide housing for impoverished or disaster-stricken areas. Pretty cool, huh? So, what makes this shelter so revolutionary? Well, first off, its a 377 sq ft building that ships on four pallets and can be assembled in only 72 man hours. And, it can be built with sustainable electric, plumbing, and waste management - which means households have no need to pay for utilities! Perfect for disaster-stricken and impoverished areas. The shelter can be configured in multiple ways for use as a four-room home, a school, clinic, dining area, or meeting area. Why are we calling it the E...
A Size for Everyone -- Go Green with New 50-Gallon Composter
For this post, I want to write about our new Lifetime 50-Gallon Composter. Loyal blog readers (if there are any of them out there) know that Lifetime offers a variety of composters. These composters make being green easy, help provide beautiful gardens, and potentially save the planet. Yep, composters are pretty much modern day superheroes. Well, maybe that is a little extreme, but they are pretty cool. Lifetime has been in the composter manufacturing business for about five years now. I remember when my boss came to me and said he wanted to develop a composter for mass market retail. I have to admit, I thought his brain might have started to compost. I didn't think mass market retail was ready for compost bins. After all, they were only for people who lived completely off the land in rural USA, right? Boy was I wrong... and...
Fishing Kayaks for Father's Day
Father's Day is almost here. If youre like me, you are always rushing around trying to figure out what to do for Dad at the last minute. For years I always based my Fathers Day gifts on two things, fish and sports. My dad either gets the latest Jets (dont hold it against him) football team sweatshirt or a nice wooden fish decoration to hang on the wall. Since these were always my dads favorite activities, this always seemed like the best route, until he ran out of wall space for all those wooden fish decorations. Im sure Im not the only one at there who has a dad that loves fishing. I mean loves it. You know, the dad who gets up at 4am so he can get out on the water . The dad who has more fishing rods than pairs of pants. Instead of adding to the shiny collections of rods, or in my case, fish that hang on the wall, why not g...
