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.

Tetherball poles, new at BuyLifetime
Since the very beginning, Lifetime Products has been in the basketball business. Theyve made strong, durable poles, backboards, and rims, and innovated the adjustable height mechanism which brought basketball younger kids.

Whether its Tether Ball, Tetherball Sets, or Tetherball Pole, Tetherball is a great traditional outdoor game, and fun for all ages.
Temporary Diaper Changing Table
Do you have guests with little ones coming to stay with you for the holidays? Fill ill-equipped to meet all the baby needs? Sometimes the little comforts of home can make a big difference when traveling with children who are used to routines. One easy way to accommodate your diaper-wearing visitors (and their parents) is to have a changing table set up in their room. Hold on, no need to run to the local baby store. Simply pull out your Lifetime folding table! Trust me, it works perfect! This summer when we were home visiting my parents, my mom set up her Lifetime 4 adjustable height fold-in-half table in my daughters room. We used it as a diaper changing table for my 2-year-old and the 4 table was the perfect size...we even had room to keep the wipes on the table, too. And, since Lifetime tables are plastic, if there happen...
Lt. Gov. Bell Congratulates Lifetime on 25 Years!
We blew out the candles so it must be official Lifetime is 25 years old! As you know, we're celebrating all year long with sales, giveaways, and more. And, last Monday, we held a special 25 Year Anniversary Event at our factory headquarters in the Clearfield Freeport Center.Personally, I'm still amazed at how quickly we transformed a factory assembly line warehouse that was running on Friday into a trendy industrial meeting facility for the event on Monday. The place was decked out with product displays and live jazz music!Check out the pictures, pretty cool, huh? And, yes, it was back to an assembly line by Tuesday! Nearly 400 people attended our celebration, including Lifetime's partners, suppliers, and local community leaders. Our guests of honor included Utah Lt. Gov. Greg Bell and Clearfield City Mayor Don Wood. We were...
