Toys for Bob is an American creator of console games founded in California in the city of Novato in 1989. Laurie Less-Reiche invented the phrase Toys for Bob; it was selected to inspire curiosity and to refer to the love of actual toys by Paul and Fred.
Paul Reiche III, CEO and Creative Manager, Fred Ford, and Terry Falls created the firm. In the early 1990s, they developed the Star Control video game and its Star Control II sequel. However, they did not participate in the Star Control 3 production. Between 1994 to 2000, Crystal Dynamics, like The Horde, produced several video games for the brand, such as Pandemonium! , Unholy War, and 102 Dalmatians: Puppies to the Rescue.
The corporation created the so-called Disney Extreme Skate Adventure in 2003 and was acquired by Activision on 3 May 2005 and is now a fully owned subsidiary with the new video game sale. Long-lasting deals are negotiated with Blizzard by the executive department and staff, and Toys for Bob is now in operation in Novato, California. Under Activision, the developers initially concentrated on computer games licensed, but around 2008 the demand for these games started to fade and needed to pursue a new niche.
After 2011, Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure has developed with the video game franchise Skylanders, beginning in 2016 with Crash Bandicoot as the player hero. Skylanders: Imaginadores is the new update.
On 5 April 2018, Toys for Bob had revealed the re-engineering of the first Trilogy Spyro Series, the dragon Spyro Trilogy. Eventually, they develop Crash Bandicoot 4: About time in 2020.
