Tweet For as long as I can remember, Mattel Inc. has been a leading toy manufacturer of high quality products and a classic company from which to buy toys.

About Kendra ConferI 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!

Tweet A few days ago, I asked my sister, a proud third grader, how she enjoyed her first week of school. She replied, “Math is fun, and lunch is too!” Ok, so she enjoys approximately 2 hours of her school day – then again she’s 9, so it takes the latest and greatest toys or […]
