Today’s children have enough gadgets, electronics or toys to keep them busy any hour of the day, but one of the oldest and simplest activities is still the most popular – coloring books! Madison Square Garden Entertainment, producers of America’s #1 holiday show, the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, starring the Radio City Rockettes, a holiday tradition for more than 76 years with universal appeal and an iconic status, is partnering with one of the nations largest producers of coloring books, Really Big Coloring Books, Inc.

Wayne Bell, President of RBCB commented, “Every 18 months nearly 10 million children in America begin to scribble and color and now you can add learning about the Radio City Christmas Spectacular to the list. People have always loved and supported long lasting quality entertainment such as the Christmas Spectacular and our company is honored to partner with Radio City Trademarks to produce the licensed coloring book. At RBCB we add a classic, colorful and unique educational component to a child’s coloring and learning process. Coloring books to our company are not a commodity, they are a brand name.”
