In the beginning...

some time back in the deep recesses of the last century around 1966 (very nearly 50 years ago!), the Dodo Pad diary (a combined memo-doodle-engagement-weekly-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, in his munificence, bowed dutifully (an unusual position for him) to the pressures of modern times and developed a range of alternative formats (including Filofax compatible refills in a variety of sizes) to suit the individual and ever widening needs of his esteemed customers. In 2006, the calendar year Dodo Pad was joined by its younger offspring, the equally acclaimed mid year Acad-Pad (perfect for students and scholars) and even more recently than that, a 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?
