Toys for Bob – Why Work For Us?


Toys For Bob are the creators of the innovative, new Skylanders video game and toy franchise.

We've made games for over 22 years now on every conceivable platform and have never worked harder and been more proud of anything we’ve ever done. In games and in life. Well, maybe those of us with children are a little more proud of them but Skylanders is a pretty close #2. Or maybe it’s a tie for #1 because to us, Skylanders is our baby.

Our studio was founded by Paul Reiche III and Fred Ford, is located in lovely Novato, CA, is owned by equally lovely Activision-Blizzard, Inc., and generally advocates the relocation of polar bears to Antarctica. Besides that, our dream is to keep making fun games and now, awesome toys forever and ever.
