Toys for Bob

Toys For Bob is owned by Activision. We've been together for over 20 year, made a bunch of games, like Madagascar 1 & 2, Tony Hawks' Downhill Jam, and the Star Control series if you want to go way back. Our founders are Paul Reiche III and Fred Ford I. We aren't on fire. We advocate the relocation of polar bear tribes to Antarctica. We have some of the best design tools around that allow us to keep working on fun games for fun people and not turn into a bunch of business jerks. That passion burns deep inside our bellies, like a flaming gold hawk. And just to prove this, our latest project, Skylanders Spyro's Adventure, is a bold, innovative new adventure video game AND collectable toy experience that allows kids to bring their toys to life. Literally.
