Kids' Picnic Table Gets New Color(less)!

Kids' Picnic Table Gets New Color(less)!

So, I have to fess up. Lifetime makes a kids' picnic table, but I don't 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 son's 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.  Everyone's 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 didn't want the rest of the "yard" to be mistaken for a daycare with brightly-colored, giant, plastic toys cluttering the space.   It actually all started with the sandbox for Nathan's 1st birthday.  I was adamant about not having a massive, green turtle staring at me when we opened our back door.  Don't get me wrong, those animal-shaped sandboxes are cute, but it was too much for me in our minuscule "yard".  So, I was thrilled when I found a sandbox that was beige and actually looked like it was made out of rocks to "blend in" with our oh-so-beautiful cement block walls.

Then came birthday number 2.  A kids' picnic table seemed liked the perfect gift idea.  And, I must say, it was!  We have used our kids' picnic table a TON.  I wanted to get a table that would sit at least six kids and would be big enough and strong enough for older kids to sit on so Nathan wouldn't outgrow it too quickly.  The Lifetime kids' picnic table met all of that criteria perfectly.  And, it even folded flat for storage. (Although, we didn't need that feature since we lived in Phoenix and could use a picnic table year-round.)  So, what was my problem with the Lifetime table?  Yep, you guessed it, the bright colors.  The Lifetime kid's picnic table had a blueberry blue tabletop with raspberry red benches.  Very fun for kids, but much too busy for our tiny backyard.  Sorry Lifetime.  Even though I helped name the colors, I just couldn't bring myself to buy such vivid furniture.  Call me a traitor.

But, guess what?  Last week when I was looking online at http://www.buylifetime.com/ , I noticed Lifetime now has a new ALMOND-colored kids' picnic table!  I guess I must not be the only crazy mom out there who wants to escape the never-ending rainbow world.  So, now you can buy your little munchkins a picnic table that looks exactly like Mom and Dad's!  And, we all know how much kids' love miniature versions of our stuff.  This thing is identical to the grown-up version.  And, it's built just as tough as the adult picnic tables...kids aren't going to outgrow this one for a loooong time.   Check out the dimensions, you'll be impressed how it stacks up to other kids' tables out there.  Sure wish this would have been around three years ago because I would have bought it in a jiffy! 

Moral of this long story...if you're looking to buy a kids' picnic table for this summer, check out the new one from Lifetime.  Trust me, you won't be disappointed with the quality...and now that it is available in almond, you won't be disappointed with the color, either!  :)

Oh, need a little extra incentive to choose the Lifetime kids' picnic table?  Don't forget when you purchase from http://www.buylifetime.com/ shipping is FREE!!  Yep.  Zip, zero, nada.

New Patio Furniture on BuyLifetime!
My best friend recently replaced all her wicker patio furniture with Lifetime patio furnitureher wicker chairs and table had rotted from sun exposure in less than two years! As she said, I like the wicker look, but Im not made out of money. These tables and chairs will last forever. Maybe they wont last forever, but they should last a good deal longer, and I agree with her that they look a lot better. Her wicker furniture was faded and ratty in the first summer, even before it fell apart. The clean, smooth finish on her new Lifetime patio furniture will last much longer. I know, because Ive been using Lifetime tables and chairs as patio furniture for ages. Long before I came to work for Lifetime, we had a Lifetime picnic table on our deck and Lifetime folding chairs sitting in the shade under our walnut tree. Apparently, Im...
2 More People On Your Christmas List Who Need a Lifetime Table
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 Dads! Give them a Lifetime Childrens Picnic Table so they can sit and eat at a table just their size and theyll 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 its stain resistant? Even permanent marker, spaghetti sauce, or grape juice wont stain this table! 2. The TeacherLooking for a unique gift for your childs teacher that she can use both in her classroom and at home? Give her a Lifetime Personal Table. Its inexpensive and with the three adjustable heights it can be used for an extra desk, as a podium, to hold graded papers, or to hold the class...
Dare We Hope?
Today, here in Utah, its warm and sunny. Buds on my flowers and trees are starting to emerge. Snow is harder and harder to find. Dare we hope that Spring has arrived? I love being outside, and look forward to preparing the yard for summertime. Part of that preparation for me this year is getting a new table for the deck. Our previous table was given to us and we learned the hard way that it isnt snow and water friendly. Basically the table top is sitting in a heap of rubble on the deck. My wife and I like to hide from the kids and have breakfast outside. So I think this year I am going to get the Lifetime Bistro Set. If you havent seen this yet, its pretty nice. Made from Polystyrene, which is a type of plastic that looks like wood, this table is definitely snow and water friendly. It comes with a table and two chairs. Sin...
