Toys For Bob is one of the longest-lived game studios in the world.  We founded the company in 1989 and have developed a wide variety of successful games on virtually every platform. Most recently we reinvented the world of toys and kids video games by creating the ‘Toys to Life’ genre with Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure.  We are proud of our game’s innovation and success, but more so the passion and joy we see in the millions of Skylanders fans around the world.  Our studio is located in Novato, California, a quick 20-minute drive north from the Golden Gate Bridge.  We are a mix of game-industry veterans, energetic new developers, and everything in-between.  We work hard, yet maintain a fun and laid-back workplace complete with Tiki/Pirate Culture and a welcoming policy for friendly dogs.
