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 When I was little, a pillow was just a pillow – a soft rectangle shoved inside your favorite princess or cartoon pillow cover, but not anymore! A colorful and kooky collection of experimental pillow creations, The Kreechers are the plush misfits with personality that will win the hearts and imaginations of any child (or [...]
Tweet It was always a life or death situation when I resorted to asking the Magic 8 Ball for advice. I would hold it in my hands, sweat glistening on my brow, wondering whether the little black ball would deliver good news to the ultimate questions: Does (insert name) like me? Did I pass my [...]
