Ben 10 has fans worldwide, but we recently had the chance to meet one of his biggest right here in Southern California! Ethan is a 5 year-old boy, who like many fans his age, loves watching the Ben 10 series and living out Ben’s out-of-this-world adventures. Unlike most other boys though, Ethan is suffering from a serious illness and has been fighting heroically to win his own battle.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation®, an organization that is dedicated to fulfilling the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions, introduced us to Ethan and his fight last year. When we heard that Ethan was going to be receiving his “wish granting” party, and that he’d love some “Hero Time” with Ben 10, Bandai America Incorporated and Cartoon Network jumped at the chance to donate an array of more than 50 Ben 10 toys and products to make the festivities totally Ultimate.
When the big day of the party arrived, Ethan, his older brother, and his guests were surprised with, limited edition Ben 10: Ultimate Alien gold figures, and the boys wasted no time jumping in and opening their new collection of Ben 10 toys. Ethan was especially excited to receive the Alien Creation Laboratory and the figures of all of his favorite characters.
We would like to thank the Make-A-Wish Foundation for the opportunity to meet Ethan, a true Ben 10 “hero,” and to help make Ethan’s wish come true!
