It's that time of year again when kids start making their wish lists for Santa… and parents everywhere start stressing over how Santa is going to manage to fit those gifts through the chimney and under the tree without being caught! Don't worry, at Lifetime we completely understand!  Since we make huge playsets that are on the top of a lot of kids' lists, we've had a few chats with Santa to figure out how we can help him and his elves get these playsets to the all kids on his "nice" list. After talking with Santa, we came up with a plan. This year, if your kids ask for a Lifetime Monkey Adventure Playset,  there is a way to easily fit it under your tree!  We have already worked with Santa's elves to make a video that your kids can unwrap and watch on Christmas morning to see their present. Here's how ... More

With 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.

This playset also has some definite advantages over the wooden playsets on th... More

The other day my family took advantage of the perfect outdoor Fall weather and we spent the morning riding bikes to the local library and school playground. While our kids were busy exploring the teeter-totters, swings, and playscapes, my husband and I happened to notice a few lonely, but well-used, tetherball poles. With just one silent look at each other, we both knew it was "game on". Now, don't ask me what I was thinking…I'm 5'6" and my husband is 6'4".  Obviously, I didn't really stand a chance.  But, the competitive side in me had to try.  I guess maybe I remember too vividly my elementary school days when I was always the unlucky kid to patiently wait my turn in line, only to have to play against the biggest kid in the class who could wind the ball around the pole in just one punch.  No line...

When approaching the idea of writing a blog post about Lifetime’s powder-coating process and why it is important, I realized that I have one of the best resources for this topic. My dad, Wendell, is an engineer and has been with Lifetime Products for 15 years. About 6 years ago, he helped completely re-design our powder-coating system to make it more efficient for the company. He is an expert on this topic. So I sat down with my dad and interviewed him to find out why powder-coating is so important, what the process is, and why we use it on our metal parts. Here are some of the answers I got about our powder-coating process at Lifetime Products. Q: Why does Lifetime use powder-coating? A: Powder-coating puts a durable, long-lasting finish on our metal parts. If you are looking for a nice, paint finish, powder-coating ... More

Scrapbooks With A Click Of A Mouse
We headed up to Dallas this past weekend to visit my in-laws. My sister-in-law is a Director and Consultant for Creative Memories, a scrapbooking company. Personally, Ive always been anti-scrapbooking because I detest never-ending projects! Im a person that likes to see the fruits of my labor and I want to be able to relish in the feeling of accomplishment and productivity when I see a project completed. Plus, Im way too anal retentiveI hate cutting and gluing my pictures, I feel like Im ruining them. I also loathe messes so Id spend way more time cleaning up and organizing my supplies than working on my scrapbook! But, there is a new scrapbooking fad that is a little more up my allydigital scrapbooks! No fancy-schmancy paper, no glue or embellishments, no cutting pictures required. Apparently, its all the rage. My sister-in...
Building Our Lifetime Shed - Step 1
Okey-dokey. So, our Lifetimeshed arrived and we read through the assembling directions. Now that we had the general idea of what we were about to undertake, we were ready to start building our shed! Well, sort of. Before we could actually start assembling our Lifetime shed, we had to prepare the shed site. As you may recall, we plan to put our 8x5 Lifetime shed right up against our back fence. But, our yard has a pretty significant slope and we can only dig about 6 before we hit solid rockpractically boulders in some spots! And, lucky us, we also had a tree stump and roots we had to take into consideration. Fun times. So, our first step was to level the ground to be flush with the tree stump by removing weeds, rocks, mulch, adding dirt, etc. Ground ready? Check. The Lifetime shed directions recommend building the shed on a...
Happy (Early) Father's Day to Our Shed Giveaway Winner!
Thanks to everyone who entered this month's giveaway to try and win the Lifetime 7'x7'Shed for their Dad for Father's Day. We received some very touching stories about how much your Dads mean to you and why you wanted to win this shed for Dad. But, in the end, the winner picked by random.org was Sonya R. of Knoxville, TX. Congrats, Sonya. We hope your husband enjoys this year's Father's Day present for years to come! We also heard some great feedback about which features you liked best about this relatively-new Lifetime 7'x7' Shed. By far (and not surprisingly), the feature most of you liked the best was the full-length roof skylight. That's a pretty awesome addition to a shed! Other popular answers were the shatterproof windows that open and the customizable shelving. If you fell in love with this shed but weren't the luck...
