April 20, 2021 (Katy, Texas) – All aboard! Today, Igloo launched its brand-new The Beatles Yellow Submarine Playmate Collection inspired by the legendary rock band’s landmark animated 1968 film and subsequent album. The special-edition collection includes three Little Playmate coolers designed with the famous, psychedelically colorful artwork from the animated movie: The Yellow Submarine Little Playmate, All You Need Is Love Little Playmate and Blue Meanies Little Playmate. All three are available today at

“It’s been a dream fulfilled for Igloo to team up with not only one of the most iconic bands of all time, but also with one of the most revolutionary animated films of all time,” said Brian Garofalow, Chief Marketing Officer at Igloo. “We’re really excited to provide all Beatles fans with fun Playmates featuring their favorite Yellow Submarine scenes that they can take on their own voyages on land or at sea.”

Just like the landmark film and album, Igloo’s special-edition The Beatles Yellow Submarine Playmate Collection — a deal brokered by Sony Thread Shop, the North American licensing agent for The Beatles — is full of peace, love, music, Blue Meanies and, hopefully soon, cold drinks. Igloo designed these vibrant coolers with recognizable artwork straight out of scenes from the animated movie “The Beatles Yellow Submarine”, including the All You Need Is Love Little Playmate inspired by The Beatles’ hit song and momentous scene in the film, the Blue Meanies Little Playmate featuring the music-hating antagonists and, of course, a Little Playmate modeled after the Fab Four’s bright, beloved Yellow Submarine underwater vessel.

All three The Beatles Yellow Submarine Little Playmate coolers — with capacity for up to nine 12-ounce cans — in this special-edition collection are available today, for $39.99 each, while supplies last.
