How I Used the Lifetime Space Planner to Plan Bear's Backyard

As you can see in my last post, Lifetime recently partnered with the Utah Jazz to sponsor Bear's Backyard--a play area for families. It has become a popular hangout for fans! I had the opportunity to go to a game the other night against the Atlanta Hawks. It was one of the first times coming back since I collaborated with the Lifetime Store to plan the area in October. It turns out, seeing kids having fun on the Lifetime playgrounds and Double Shots were one of the few happy sights that night... our beloved Jazz were 3-pointed to death  by those pesky Hawks, resulting in a score of 110-87. As you can see in this photo, the faces of the people behind us are a little nervous. Fans left still hopeful though. I think we know that the Jazz will get back on their winning streak soon! IMG_0114.gif

When putting together the plan for Bear's Backyard, we were faced with a challenge-- how many fun Lifetime products can you use to create the ultimate play area? Needless to say, I was up to the challenge. So, the first thing we did was meet, and determine which products we needed to show. Then the next thing I did was click over to the www.lifetime.com to use the free Lifetime Space Planner software. With top-view icons of each of our products, already scaled to exact size, it was easy and fun to design the area!  My only drawback was that the Ace Flyer and Helicopter Teeter- Totters have not yet been loaded into the planner... though it did give me a good to-do item for the future. In the image shown here, I had to use default exercise equipment scaled to the size of both these items!

Using the planner was easy to do. I drew out the floor plan, started dragging and and dropping products, and using the measurement tool to determine whether or not they were too close to eachother, I drug them around to fit as many as possible! I got a little ambitious I think, as the Lifetime Store Regional Manager had to remove a few items to increase safety when he actually loaded it with products. blog-image.gif

The next time you need to plan a space with some Lifetime products, I would highly recommend the Lifetime Space Planner! It's free, easy to use, and nothing to download!  There are useful icons for most Lifetime products and all sorts of other indoor and outdoor items-- trees, plants, furniture, landscaping items, and more!  So if you haven't already, click on over to our space planner and check it out! One tip before I go-- one thing I learned about arranging a play area. If you are looking to buy a Lifetime Playground (or already own one), you should know that our slides are fast! Be sure to allow 4'-6' of space in front of the slide. The fast slide is lots of fun for kids!  I remember in one of the local commercials we shot for the Lifetime Store, the kids started going down it as "cannon balls". They laughed like it was the funniest thing in the world!

Local Elementary Hoops it up with Lifetime
It was a big day for my son -- he's 8 and switching schools. Today we got to meet his principal, teacher, and people that he'll be seeing while furthering his education. We also got to see his classroom, and more importantly, the playground. You remember how important recess was in elementary school, right? Yeah, really, really important! It's been a while since I've been on a school playground. Back in my day they had two kinds of basketball hoops, the tall ones (at regulation height) and the one for the younger kids (permanently set lower). At this school, however, they had adjustable-height backboards from none-other than Lifetime Products! Sweet!

Top 3 Things We Learned When Assembling Our Lifetime Basketball Hoop
So, a few weeks ago, Iwroteabout our decision to buy a Lifetime Portable Basketball Hoop - Model 90228. Well, it's assembled, up, and the kids are loving it. When the box arrived, the kids couldn't wait for us to put it together. The cool thing about Lifetime basketball hoops is even though it's a pretty large product, it's actually packaged all in one box. Granted, it's a big box (size varies slightly depending on the size of backboard you buy). But, it easily fits in an SUV and probably in the trunk of most mid-sized cars. By the way, did you know Lifetime actually invented packaging basketball hoops in one box? Really, they did! Back in 1992. It may seem like a novel idea now, but that invention made it so basketball hoops could be sold in mass retail markets like Walmart andchain sporting goods stores. Before that, you c...
