I was first introduced to the Martha & Friends DVD series last year, when I had the chance to review the Martha & Friends: Holiday Collection, which featured Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas themed stories and activities. I wondered how a cartoon version of Martha Stewart would be, and was interested in seeing how my daughter Savannah received her. I know many people who either love Martha or hate her. Yes, she may rub you the wrong way, but you have to admit she truly is a crafty lady and comes up with some amazing holiday-themed decorating ideas.
We loved the last holiday collection DVD and couldn't wait to see what other DVDs would release in this series from Gaiam Vivendi Entertainment. And, when I was sent a press release last month talking about an Easter DVD, I couldn't wait to get my hands on a review copy and watch it with Savannah. And, this past weekend, we did just that. Yes, I know what you are thinking -- Easter already -- we haven't even gotten through Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day. But, I bet if you head to the store today for last minute Valentine's Day candy and gifts, you will see Easter products already being displayed. I saw them at Rite Aid this past weekend and couldn't believe it. It seems like each year the holidays are rushed and come and go so quickly. But, besides Christmas, my next favorite holiday is Easter, as I love to decorate eggs with the girls, make cookies and watch the Easter bunny cartoon specials on television with them.
As I watched this Easter special with Savannah, I couldn't help but get excited about Easter, and wanted to try out the different crafts and activities that were available for download. While this DVD is jam packed with recipes and fun activities to enjoy with the little ones, it also offers up a great story, which will teach children about teamwork and helping others. And, at only $5.99 from Amazon, you can't go wrong for an entertaining cartoon featuring Martha and her friends, while having an assortment of craft projects, recipes and activities available for download right from the DVD.
So, if you are looking for a fun Easter DVD to share with your children this year, why not pick up Martha & Friends: Martha's Magnificent Egg today?
