Playground Safety in Your Own Backyard

DataVault.jpgWith the start of a new school year, parents tend to have a lot on their mind. One topic that seems to come up a lot is playground safety. Although Lifetime doesn’t influence school ground safety, Lifetime does make a variety of home playground equipment built specifically with your child’s safety in mind. We have rubberized chain grips on our swing sets and playsets to prevent little fingers from being caught or pinched, and all hard edges have been rounded or covered. Our UV-protected, powder-coated steel and high-density polyethylene are heat resistant and will not burn kids on a sunny day like many metal or plastic outdoor toys. Our playground equipment passes all playground safety standards to ensure your child’s safety.

Our playground equipment is built durable and safe; however, it is also important to create a safe environment that has plenty of room and is free from safety hazards. We have a few suggestions and safety zone dimensions for our products to help you get started in making your home playground as safe and fun for your kids as possible. For a full list of specifications, dimensions, and safety zone tips for each product visit the Lifetime Online Store.

My favorite products from Lifetime- Our current family favorite is the Big Stuff Hard Roof Play set.  The boys and their cousins LOVE it!  Since our home has the tendency to become a gathering place, we get the most use out of our large array of Lifetime Folding Tables.  We have our eye on the Ace Flyer for Christmas.  I have grand plans for The 60” Lifetime Mammoth Basketball System, I just need to first do a little backyard excavation for the play area.

Ambassador Huntsman Tours Lifetime China Facility and EcoHouse
Last week, I had the honor of traveling to Xiamen, China, to show our factory and new EcoHousing Initiative to Jon Huntsman Jr., previous governor of Utah and current Ambassador to China. The tour of our Xiamen facility was well organized and I could not be more pleased with the way things turned out. A bit of history. In 2008, we opened a wholly-owned and operated facility in Xiamen, China. This means we have tight control over product quality. This is a huge distinction and big advantage over imitation "Lifetime" products made in China by other companies. By having our own manufacturing facility overseas, we can be more globally competitive and more effectively and profitably manage our international sales and distribution to the more than 52 countries we sell products to worldwide. Being wholly-owned also means the facili...
How My Blog Posts Unfold
When Lifetime started this blognearly threeyears ago, it was with the intention of showing you how we all incorporate Lifetime products into our everyday lives. Today, this blog has grown into so much more. But, every once in a while, I still like to share just the normal, everyday stories about using Lifetime products.Sometimes I really have to think, ponder, and put on my creative hat to come up with my lifestyle blog post ideas. Other times, they just unfold right before my eyes - literally. Look at these photos. You probably think I purposely set up my Lifetime Card Table and Chairs just for a photo op. Nope. The other day I went to the grocery store while my husband stayed home with the kiddos. When I pulled in the driveway, I was welcomed by this absolute cutest scene adorning my sidewalk. It was a beautiful, sunny Fal...
