Hey, it’s Josh here!

Catch me every weekday evening from 7pm where I’ll have the Pop 7 at 7!


So a few weeks back I got asked if I wanted to go to San Francisco to go and see how the Skylanders Trap Team game was made, and this is my vlog of the trip. Exciting right?

I was extra lucky as well because Dan from Weekends was meant to go, but he mysteriously went missing a few days before the trip, so I got to go instead. It turned out someone had ‘accidentally’ tied him up, locked him in the Fun Kids toilet and ran away giggling.  It’s really weird because I was in the toilet at the time it happened and didn’t hear or see anything. How strange.

So I packed as much hair wax as Virgin said I was allowed to take on a plane, and set off on the longest plane journey I’d ever been on.

When I arrived at San Francisco it turned out that the city’s Base Stick Ball Batting team ‘The Giants’ had won the final of the FA Cup, so the whole city was running around hugging each other, and they were pretty insistent that I join in.

So after the hugging I got to go and check out the city sites and then we set off for a tour of the ‘Toys For Bob’ studio. This is where they made the new Skylanders Trap Team computer game.

We got to see how Skylanders characters were thought up, improved, drawn up, models made and then turned into the living characters within the computer game.

FoodFightWe also got to invent our very own computer game with Paul, one of the bosses at the studio. We invented a Dance Flying Platform game (which even we weren’t too sure quite how it worked). We also got to have a good play on Skylanders Trap Team and I got to try out my new favourite Skylander ‘Foodfight’.

I also asked the guys if I could be made into a Skylander character that everyone can play as in the game. They said they’ll “think about it”. That’s basically a “yes” right? Awesome. Expect to see me in the game soon!

There’s tonnes more Skylanders Trap Team stuff around the Fun Kids site!
