Tetherball Comes Around Again - In a New Portable Version

My son is in kindergarten this year and I love hearing what fun things he does in school each day since it's all so new to him.  Last week he came home and couldn't wait to tell me about gym class - they had played tetherball

Wow, does that bring back some memories.  Apparently, I'm not the only one that remembers standing in line during school recess waiting for my turn to take the big swing.  A few weeks ago, one of the popular Twitter topics was #whenwewereyoung.  (BTW, you can follow us on Twitter @Lifetime 365!) I was surprised to read how many people tweeted about tetherball memories!  Some fond, some not so fond...guess it depends on if they were hit by the ball!?!

Well, good news!  Tetherball is no longer limited to school playgrounds!  Lifetime has made a new portable tetherball you can have in your own backyard or driveway.  It has a plastic base (very similar to a portable basketball hoop base) that you fill with sand or water to make it sturdy and you can roll it to your desired location of play.   

Remember, it's never too early to start thinking about Christmas presents!  Lifetime's portable tetherball is a gift that's sure to be fun for the whole family!   And, be sure to visit Lifetime's Tips & Solutions page for more fun tetherball tidbits and official game rules...just in case you forget from your elementary days!

Back When I Was A Kid...
Well, like I mentioned a few posts ago, I just got back from visiting my parents in Ohio. I love visiting Ohio in the summerits soooo pretty with all the green grass and trees everywhere. Never been to Ohio? Just check out the picture I took of my parents backyardseeing is believing! Anyway, the real reason I snapped this photo is because it shows my parents Lifetime 4-person picnic tablein such a picturesque setting. I gave the table to my Dad about five years ago for Fathers Day, I think. My parents love it! (Ahhh, for once I found the perfect gift!) Its the ideal size to provide a little eating area/seating by their pond and it requires no maintenance. In the winter, Dad can easily just fold it up and hang it on the wall down in the barn. As I slid the Lifetime picnic table under the shade tree one day for the kids to ...
Questions to Ask Yourself Before Buying A Folding Table
When purchasing a folding table, you may think that all you need is a basic structure with a flat surface, four legs, and the ability to fold flat. In some cases, you may be right, right? I think about tables and chairs a lot. Every day I talk with our Lifetime Tables and Chairs team about corner impact, leg locking mechanisms, channeling, leg deployment, and lots of other details that will make you stop reading this. All this knowledge has made me a firm believer that a very durable table with safety and convenience features will pay off in the long run. Do you remember the "old" folding tables? Let me jog your memory-- they were wooden, heavy, and clumsy. I remember carrying heavy tables made of wood or metal, with sharp metal edges below the table top that cutmy fingers. If you were alive in the 1990's and earlierand I a...
Outdoor Retailer Wrap-up
Another year of Outdoor Retailer (OR) has come and gone. For those of you who dont know what OR is, it is the largest outdoor industry trade show in the whole world! It is held in our backyard in downtown Salt Lake City. This year, we also had the industry Demo Day in our backyard as well because it was moved from Jordenelle Reservoir to Pineview Reservoir in Ogden Valley! We spent all day on the beautiful banks of Pineview paddling and talking to folks from all over the world. We were super busy and had tons of people stop by to give our boats a test run! What a day! After Demo Day, the indoor show begins. We spend months preparing and designing both our booth and new kayaks to unveil at the show. This year we went all out, even more than we have in the past. We showcased all of the kayaks in our lineup at the Outdoor Retai...
