Tweet When I was a kid, my constant companion was a large bag of Legos – not a set of Legos, but a completely custom collection of random Lego pieces. I loved that each time I dug into my bag of Legos, I pulled out a random piece that let my imagination run wild! And [...]
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!

We loved playing Santa’s elves in our warehouse workshop this past holiday season, and as our toys flew from our [...]
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 [...]
Tweet It’s hard, it’s cold, it’s beautiful – how else would you describe ice? Well, perhaps you could also say that ice is sparkling, mesmerizing, and unique! Whether a winter wonderland is your favorite way to enjoy the holiday season – or the cold has you wearing six layers of clothing to beat the frostbite, [...]
Tweet Christmas Eve has finally arrived and the elves of Growing Tree Toys want only one thing: to hang up their pointed elf shoes for a night of relaxation! After all, it was a very busy season. As we scatter across the country to enjoy the holidays with our families, we (the busy elves of [...]
