Nintendo and Starlight Foundation Fairy Godmother Jamie Lee Curtis Gift Miller’s Children’s Hospital with Activity Centers for Sick Kids!
Nintendo is giving kids the opportunity to have fun while they’re in the hospital through mobile units with Wii systems that can be rolled up right beside their hospital beds.
Fun CenterTM mobile entertainment units contain a Sharp AQUOSTM LCD television, DVD player, and Nintendo Wii™ gaming system. The unveiling of these new mobile units at Miller Children’s Hospital in Long Beach, CA (part of the MemorialCare Health System) included the Kirby costume character and celebrated the launch of Kirby’s Return to Dream Land, which features the “super tough pink puff” using his Super Abilities with up to three other players to cooperatively battle enemies. Kids across the country were also invited to share what Super Abilities they would like to have to help others, and some of their creations are going to be featured at the hospital.
Also a key part of the festivities was a personal appearance by actress and Starlight Foundation Fairy Godmother, Jamie Lee Curtis. Her son used a Fun Center when he was hospitalized following his spleen rupturing– so the donation of these centers to a local hospital is pretty meaningful to Curtis.

This is really a great gift to that medical center which treats kids with serious illnesses and just finished a major expansion in space. It’s really going to help kids find that the hospital isn’t so scary or boring!
