Nintendo of America & Starlight

Delivering smiles through the love of gaming.

For over 30 years, Starlight and Nintendo of America have teamed up to deliver happiness to seriously ill children and their families through the power of play.

Nintendo builds custom Starlight Nintendo Gaming Stations that we have distributed to medical facilities in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. They are specially manufactured to meet strict infection safety protocols and roll anywhere in the hospital - and now, they have gotten even more portable with the latest iteration, the Starlight Nintendo Switch Handheld.

But what’s really special about them is how they transform a hospital room when a Child Life Specialist rolls one in and a young patient’s eyes light up. For a little while, they can play their favorite games and escape the four walls of their hospital room/

Just $1 can provide 1 hour of gaming to a hospitalized child. Are you ready to deliver play to those who need it most?

About Our Collaboration

The Starlight Gaming Stations are an incredible and unique tool that helps turn a sick or injured child’s pain, fear and stress into smiles and, we are thrilled and thankful to Starlight Children’s Foundation for this generous gift.
