Fun under the sun with Martha Stewart!


Vivendi Entertainment‘s Martha & Friends: Summer Fun is a perfect way for children to celebrate the Fourth of July. Although this edition of Martha & Friends is shorter than the previous DVDs (the main portion only contains two full length episodes), the content is just as good as the other holiday specials and the accompanying arts and crafts will liven up any Fourth party.MF_SUMMER_FUN_2D_AMARAY

Join Martha, Hannah, Lily, and Kevin for their summer fun. The annual Fourth of July events are threatened by a lack of funding, and it’s up to Martha and the gang to use their noggings and come up with ideas to raise money — and quickly for the fireworks show. Between trips to the beach, they’re planning an awesome back to school party to commemorate their progression to middle school. Children of all ages will enjoy having some summer fun with Martha & Friends!

Summer Fun is another great DVD in the Martha & Friends lineup and it’s a shame there were only two main episodes on the disc. The animation is of good quality as always and the colors in this episode must be noted for their vivid and rich variety; fitting for a summer theme. Adorable puppies Sharkey and Francesca have substantial amount of screen time to work their charm and wit on the viewer. Four bonus webisodes are included as supplement, featuring spa tips, ways to use leftover craft items for a great birthday party, how to make your own sailboat, and unique ways to come up with board game supplies. Martha’s Craft Corner, accessible by inserting the DVD into a PC or laptop and following the instructions outlined in the bonus features section, contains multiple projects featured in the episodes on how to make sand castles, scrapbooks, paper lanterns, s’mores and more.

Have Fun!
