Keeping Kids’ Safety in Mind

Spring is in the air―at least here in Utah. The neighborhood is slowly coming back to life as kids and their parents are reemerging from their indoor hibernation. Time to find the bicycle pump and rollerblade knee pads because, at last, the kids can go outside and play! With the comeback of Spring also comes a greater need for drivers to be aware of the little ones out and about. To this end, Lifetime is introducing a new product this season, the Child Alert sign.

Summer is Here!

As a kid, my summers were always lazy and unstructured. My sisters and I were always sent outside in the morning, and the day was spent trying to find activities to do.  My point is, summer is here and it's the perfect time to purchase some Lifetime playground equipment. One of my kids’ favorite games to play on our playset at home is “Fish Out of Water.” I sit with my eyes closed, and if I think one of my kids are off the playset I yell, “Fish out of water!” If they get caught, we switch and they have to try and catch me. Kids love to get a break from school during the summer, and we love our Lifetime play

From Factory to Floor to You

Over the years, we’ve told you about how our blow-molded products are made, and how our metals are powder-coated to protect them, but how does the whole process work, anyway?  I certainly didn't know before I started working for Lifetime.  But, here at the Freeport Center, all your products begin from scratch.  When I was first hired, I had the chance to tour the entire facility. And it was probably one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen.  No kidding.  Did you know that in our blow-molding facility, our High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plastic starts

Sure to Be a Family Favorite - New Lifetime Driveway 3 Sport Set

I am very excited to talk about our latest product.... the Lifetime Driveway 3 Sport Set. It combines the fun of Pickleball, QuickStart Tennis, Badminton, and more - all into one convenient product. Put it this way - if you're starting your Christmas lists already, get this on your list because it has family fun written all over it! The cool thing about this product is the portability... no cement required, no ground stakes to secure, and no support strings to get tangled in when playing.  The 1.75-gallon portable bases fill with sand or water for stability during play, yet can easily be moved and transported - making the system ideal to use in a home driveway and backyard, or pack up and take to a beach, pool, or park.
