Who doesn't love Target? For 4-year-old Vinnie Natale of Janesville, Wisconsin, the retail chain holds a special place in his heart. He was born with arthrogryposis, a joint condition that makes it difficult for him to move his legs properly.

According to ABC News, Vinnie's doctors told his family based on the ultrasound, they didn't think he would ever walk or let alone bend his legs and knees. However, after intensive therapy, his mother Stephanie would take him to Target to walk down the aisles. 

Target was the reward for Vinnie after receiving his first-ever walker. When it came time to plan his fourth birthday, there was only one place in mind. The party consisted of a store wide scavenger hunt with his family and friends. 

Target managers even gifted Vinnie with a corporate name tag.
