So, what is a Dodo Pad?

Very nearly 50 years ago, back in the deep recesses of the last century around 1966, the Dodo Pad diary (a week-to-view combined memo-doodle-engagement-planner-diary-organizer-message-ment book) was a new fangled invention, instantly accepted by grateful users as utterly indodispensible.

Necessity is, as we know, the mother of invention - although in this case it was Lord Dodo, the father, who came up with this brilliant weekly planner grid solution to life’s dates and deadlines. It was created to aid organization in the form of a spiral bound, lie flat, almost impossible to lose (due to the nature of its annually altering, brightly coloured cover) desk diary.

Many years on, Lord Dodo has bowed to the pressures of modern times and developed a wide range of alternative formats (pocket, wall, looseleaf, large, small etc. (including Filofax compatible refills in a variety of sizes), to suit the individual and ever widening needs of his esteemed customers.

More recently, the full year Dodo Pad has been joined by its younger offspring; the equally acclaimed mid year (August-August) Acad-Pad (perfect for students, scholars, teachers and professors) and even more recently, a large month-to-view, full colour, annual Dodo Family Planner Calendar has been hatched. The uninitiated may require more fundamental information: So, exactly what is a Dodo Pad?
