Nintendo of America’s Reggie Fils-Aime makes young boy’s dream come true


dream-factory-shea-sparlingNintendo of America and Dream Factory were able to fulfil the wish of 10-year old Shea Sparling, after he shared his dream to one day meet president Reggie Fils-Aime.

Living with the life-threatening condition polyarteritis nodosa, his dream had been to visit the company’s Seattle headquarters and meet his hero.

“When we met with Shea about his dream, it was so wonderful and adorable because he was so specific about what he would like to do for his dream,” Dream Factory’s executive director Grace Thomson explained to Metro News.

Shea’s mother, Carole Dufault added: “We had so much fun. They had signs welcoming us and we went on a tour of the building. We met with Reggie and the kids even played a game of Mario Kart with him. He was so gracious and relaxed and spent time chatting with Shea, answering his questions.”
