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.

Have you ever seen a garage that is so jam-packed with boxes and other stuff that theres no room to park a car in there? Wait. . .did I just describe your garage? In Arizona, where Ive lived for the last seven years, basements and attics are a rarity, which leaves the garage as the sole storage place. Not surprisingly, we see a lot of cars parked in the driveway! But it doesnt have to be that way. Assuming that you would LIKE to be able to park your car in your garage, let me ask you a few questions: Whats in your garage? A lot of things that end up in our garage are there because we just didnt have the courage to keep walking them to the curb. Look around. What do you see? To get a really good idea of what you have, group like items; for example, lawn and garden, camping equipment, holiday decorations, etc. Would you rath...
Basketball Polar Bear
I took a trip to San Diego this past weekend for theInternational PRSA conference.Awesome information and great speakers. But, four daysofworkshops, exhibitions, and keynote speakers-- needless to say, it's healthy to take a break! What better place to dojust thatthan the San Diego Zoo!For me, the highlight of the zoo is watching the polar bears. I was so excited to get to the exhibit, only to find him spread out on his belly, fast asleep. After a few minutes of debatingwether or notI should move on,suddenly, heopened his eyes and lumbered over to the pool. Kids and adults alike ran toward the glass, watching with excitement. This polar bear knew exactly what he wanted to do. He swam to one side of the water, grabbed his ball withone humongous paw, and swamto the other side right in front of agroup of children. What happ...
