Treat the Potterhead in Your Life to These New Harry Potter-Inspired Playmate Igloo Coolers
By Elaine Selna
Whether you’ve been a fan of the Wizarding World since Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling was published in 1997 or are just starting to watch the films, Harry Potter enthusiasts can’t seem to get enough of this franchise. For those still in search of presents for the Potterheads in their lives, Igloo's latest release could be worth checking out.
The brand has a special-edition Harry Potter collection of its iconic Playmate coolers. Until recently, only two styles were available: one featuring Hogwarts and other comprised of classic cover art illustrations. Now, the collection has expanded by adding two new designs based on fan-favorite locales, and all of them retail for $40.
One of the latest designs to be introduced is based on Hogwarts’ neighboring town of Hogsmeade. The custom artwork shows off a snow-capped mountain range with a postcard-like banner saying, “Greetings from Hogsmeade." On the sides of the cooler, you can see the main street of the town, lined by warmly lit shop windows. The second new design is of Hogsmeade’s premier candy shop, Honeydukes. Eagle-eyed fans will recognize the shop’s pink and blue diamond logo from the 2004 film Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Along with the Honeydukes motif, the cooler showcases recognizable candies found in the shop like chocolate frogs, Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans, sugar skulls, and rock candy. Both coolers can hold up to nine cans at a time and are built with eco-friendly insulation and the original Playmate side button to swivel open the top.
Even though coolers might not be the most popular items during the wintertime, they can be fun presents for people who love to plan ahead and go on outdoor adventures. Be sure to head on over to Igloo to discover the whole Harry Potter Playmate coolers collection and check out the latest Hogsmeade and Honeydukes additions.
