The “Naruto Shippuden” collaboration, in partnership with VIZ Media, kicks off with two Little Playmate cooler designs featuring “Naruto”-themed artwork, one of the most popular anime of all time – each with a 7-quart capacity that fits up to nine standard 12-ounce cans. The “Naruto Shippuden” Little Playmate cooler focuses on young shinobi, Naruto Uzumaki, the powerful main character on a mission to be the world’s greatest ninja, while the second Little Playmate design depicts Naruto’s rival-turned-closest-friend, Sasuke Uchiha.
