What experts liked
One of the big reasons why the Playmate has become as popular as it is can be attributed to its asking price. It is an extremely affordable cooler and should be within everybody’s budget. And typically budget coolers come with a whole host of quality problems. But Igloo has ironed out most of the kinks in the Playmate thanks to nearly half a century of producing it. So you will enjoy a quality and reliable cooler for a very reasonable price.
