the way i would do it is by right clicking on the items and going to properties and then adjust the rendering control/ visibilty to 0% then up it so it comes back at the frame you want.
there is bound to be another way but that is how i would do it

1, create item (a cube) 2,select cube 3, hit auto key (on the bottom next to the time line) 4, right click on the cube in the perspective view and goto properties. then change the render control/ visibiltiy to 0.0 and hit enter. ( this will create a key at frame 0) 5, goto frame 30 or what ever and then right click and repeat the above step, but make it 1.0 and hit enter ( another key is made turning on the item (cube) now this will slowly make the cube become visible in the render if you want it to suddenly appear then all you have to do is make the frame before the "on" key an off( ie step 4 at frame 29)
