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!

The Fast Track of Imaginative Fun – A Chugga Choo Choo Review

Tweet When I was a kid, I used to imagine that the reason trains went so fast was because they were racing! Yes, I pictured train workers rushing around to load cargo as quick as lightening and then drive at top speeds (300 mph in my mind) to fight for first place. While my imagination [...]
