Disney Infinity review: Imagination land

Disney Infinity, powered by a treasure trove of characters, settings, stories and childhood memories, manages to deliver a game that isn't about any of those things. Instead, Disney Infinity is about you. It is a toy box dumped onto your living room floor, brought to life by imagination, both yours and Disney's. That those precious items, packed away in the game, take so much effort, time and ultimately luck to unlock, is the game's one major stumbling block. if you want to play with a child or friend, you're going to have to plunk down some cash Infinity hopes to live up to its name. A play set brings with it two meticulously detailed plastic figures and a set piece. To access the content, a player places the figures and set piece on the Disney Infinity base and they are...

Toys for Bob and the story behind Skylanders

The figurines sit on shelves, hang on walls, tumble on desks in states of unpainted nakedness, dismantled and incoherent. They gurn, snarl and claw in an infinity of static poses. This is the place where the little plastic creatures of Activision's breakout monster hit Skylanders are conceived and birthed, the headquarters of Toys for Bob, a tiki-pirate-ship-themed ex-aircraft hanger in Marin County, California. Since its introduction back in 2011, the Skylanders video game and toy series has generated upwards of $2 billion in lifetime sales.

Phineas and Agent P coming to Disney Infinity's Toy Box April 1

Two characters from one of Disney's more popular cartoon franchises Phineas and Ferb — sleuthing platypus Agent P and the titular Phineas — are joining the ruckus in Disney Infinity's Toy Box on April 1.

The Danville power discs even recreate the show's antagonistic Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated building and a small waterslide park invented in one of the cartoon's episodes.
