About Kendra Confer

I have worked at Growing Tree Toys for 3 years as a copywriter for our store’s every expanding website, where I get to play with demo toys to learn the “in’s” and “out’s” of all our products. Since I can’t really justify buying endless amounts of toys for myself, my family and friends are pretty much guaranteed to get presents from Growing Tree Toys – and no one is happier about that than my little 9-year-old sister! Whether it’s her birthday, Christmas, or Memorial Day (I couldn’t resist a new art kit), I always buy her one of my favorite products so we can both enjoy it! When I’m not tinkering with toys, I spend my spare time reading any and every book I can get my hands on by authors such as J.K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, and Charlaine Harris. Because of my reading obsession, I own approximately 200 books!

Calico Critters Cozy Cottage Staff Review

Tweet I used to love playing with dolls, action figures and stuffed animals – no toy was safe from the grand adventures my imagination drummed up!

Pairing Pictures – Take Me Back Tuesday remembers the Memory Game

Tweet I remember when I was little and couldn’t remember anything! No, really. Whether you asked me what TV show I had watched an hour before or where I’d put my favorite toy, my brain refused to remember. One night my dad (as part of a joke, I’ve no doubt) brought home the infamous game [...]

Cardboard Imagination and Paper Creations – Take Me Back Tuesday remembers Paper Dolls

Tweet I loved playing with my cousin’s china dolls (which she did not love me doing) because I didn’t have any unique dolls of my own. So, on my fifth birthday, she gave me a set of paper dolls with oodles of bright and colorful clothing that she made herself – it was the perfect [...]

Pumped About Pipe Cleaners – A New Twist on a Craft Classic

Tweet I’ll never forget the scraggly pre-school pipe cleaners that plagued my beautiful art projects! Sure, pipe cleaners were perfect to use as the arms and legs of paper projects, or to make cute animals, but when they touched a glob of glue their soft fuzz would shrivel and all but disappear. These less-than-fuzzy pipe [...]

Hands-Down Entertainment on Wheels – The New Way to Handstand

Tweet My first handstand attempt at 6 years old: I was standing barefoot on the edge of the hard blue gym mat with my hands held shakily in front of me. Taking a step forward to brace myself, I placed my hands on the mat and pushed my feet in the air (but they didn’t [...]
