Igloo and Sega have announced an official collaboration, where the former has produced a Sonic the Hedgehog Playmate special-edition cooler featuring members of the core 16-bit Sonic cast at Green Hill Zone.
Additionally, an “expansion pack” of the Sonic the Hedgehog Cooler Collection is planned to launch later this year, including “another Playmate cooler, a softside cooler and stainless-steel drinkware.”

“With our exciting Sonic the Hedgehog gaming cooler collaboration, we’re speeding video game fans right down memory lane at Sonic speed! Going super retro, the Sonic Playmate perfectly captures the nostalgia of the universally loved Sonic the Hedgehog game, plus it’s coming out right ahead of Sonic’s birthday (June 23) — the perfect way to celebrate the 16-bit icon with cold refreshments at-the-ready,” said Adrienne Berkes, Vice President of Marketing at Igloo.
