Young Martha Stewart wannabes will find their own creative outlet in this well-rounded series that, despite its codependent relationship with its partner website, doesn't try too hard to promote its other half. Sure, the characters often draw viewers' attention to particular crafts or kitchen concoctions to better enable fans to find them on the website later on, but the references themselves don't distract from the show in the least, and there are no how-to tutorials to bog down the story's flow.

Even if your kids aren't the crafty type, Martha and Friends is a pleasant watch, and its stories explore issues that will ring true with grade-schoolers, like starting at a new school and overcoming personal insecurities. Each story works in worthwhile messages about relationships and self-confidence, so there's plenty of value even without the creative inspiration.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
