Lifetime Acquires Kayak Company

We've been pretty busy at Lifetime this week and can finally tell you what all the commotion is about.  Lifetime is expanding into another new sporting goods industry…water sports!  Fun, huh?  Just this week, Lifetime acquired the assets of San Bernardino, CA-based Dragonfly Innovation, Corp. and its kayak products.  

It's a move that just makes good sense for Lifetime.  Kayaks you say?  Yep, that's right. It's a great way to complement our other sporting goods lineup, which already includes basketball systems, soccer goals, and a tetherball set.  And, the kayaks work well with our plastics manufacturing expertise, since they are a blow-molded product.  

Lifetime will manufacture the blow-molded kayaks in its Utah facility, which means the creation of more manufacturing jobs!   Plus, with Lifetime manufacturing kayaks, it's good news for consumers, too.  Just as Lifetime transformed the basketball industry with the first complete basketball system packaged in one box, we plan to bring innovation to the packaging of bulky kayaks to make them more widely available for easy mass distribution and retail.  Right now you can find Dragonfly kayaks nationally at Wal-Mart.com, Dicks Sporting Goods, Sports Authority and Fred Meyer. But, we'll soon have them available in Lifetime's Online Store and other retailers.

As with all products manufactured by Lifetime, the kayaks feature innovative and quality construction at some of the most affordable price points in the industry.  Dragonfly kayaks cater to beginners in kayaking and are uniquely designed to prevent tipping. They are available in a variety of sizes and designs, including both youth  and adult sizes.  

We'll keep you updated on this exciting new product venture as more news splashes our way!

Table Clips for Lifetime Tables - Two Packs for the Price of One!
Out of the blue, two people have mentioned table clips to me in the past few weeks. It's not exactly a popular conversation topic or product, so I'm taking that as a sign that I should blog about them! Wanna hear something else weird...both people were named Nancy. Good thing I'm not superstitious. :) My aunt Nancy was telling me how her friend was looking for table clips to fit her Lifetime table to hold her material in place for quilting. Hmmm...clever idea for you quilter's out there, huh?! And, one of our blog readers, said she was looking for table clips to fit her Lifetime tables that she uses in her restaurant with skirting on them. Just so you know, the edges of most Lifetime banquet tables are thicker than traditional wooden folding banquet tables, which makes it a little harder to find clips that fit properly. But...

Gliding with Grandpa
Still searching for that perfect Christmas gift to give your parents, grandparents,or your spouse? Here's an idea - how about a cozy Lifetime Glider Bench? Last year, I gave my Dad the Lifetime Glider Bench for Christmas. I purchased the original Lifetime Glider Bench because it matched the Lifetime Picnic Table they have in their back yard. (The Lifetime Glider Bench is also available in a Wood Alternative version that looks like real wood slats.) My Dad put his new Lifetime Glider Bench under a huge tree in the backyard at his lake house so he can sit under the shade and watch the lake. This summer when my family went home to visit, we all took turns at some point relaxing and gliding on the bench to watch the soothing waves on the lake, the crackling fire pit, or a friendly game of Cornhole. But, my favorite use was when...
