Lay Down Daddy Games was conceived in 2013 when Neptune Blue’s CEO Jim Manduca had two young boys running around at home. At the time, Jim was working as the Film, and 3D animation Director at Fuel Industries and the position required many long days and nights. Upon coming home, Jim would head straight to the living room floor and call the kids over. The activities soon came to be called “Lay Down Daddy Games.” It was a fun name to say, and for Jim, it meant Daddy was just another play structure that you layout on the floor. For his boys, it was a just, “Lay Down Daddy!”
With the help of many of his colleagues at Fuel, the book finally came to fruition in 2017 and has since sold tens of thousands of copies worldwide. In July of 2019, Lay Down Daddy Games ranked 14th best selling book on Amazon.ca adding Best Selling Author to Jim’s Resume.
