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 it works. If you live in Utah, Santa can actually pick a DVD up in a specially wrapped box at any Lifetime Store location to put under the tree for your kids to open.  Pop the DVD in your DVD player on Christmas morning and your kids will see the elves playing on the Lifetime Monkey Bar Adventure set that will be delivered and installed at your house in a few weeks! 

If you don't live in Utah, have Santa visit the Lifetime Store online.  Then, ask Santa to leave your kids a note telling your kids to watch this video below to see what their Christmas gift is! On Christmas morning, simply show your kids this video link below on your computer.  (Please note, unfortunately, Santa's helpers will NOT be able to install the playset for you if he visited the Lifetime Store online.)

Whew, thank goodness Santa thinks of everything!  Yes, as you can see, even Santa has embraced technology! In fact, if you haven’t already done so, be sure to have your kids send Santa their wish list - via email, of course!. Simply visit www.northpole.com and they can send Santa a letter and he'll reply with a personalized email in just a few days.  Plus, there are lots of other fun activities on the site like games, recipes, and countdowns. And, thanks to the wonders of GPS, you can even track Santa's journey around the world starting in December by visiting www.noradsanta.org.

Here’s hoping your kiddos have a Christmas filled with swings and slides. And if they do, here's the video Santa's elves made to share with your kids on Christmas morning:
