Working in the Pixar Animation Studio can look like working inside a fairy tale! This enormous 22 acre is full of creativity in its every corner. The heart of the building aka “Steve Jobs Building” is where employees work, play and eat.

And these employees have used everything they can right from toys to Tiki!
