Lord Dodo’s fabulous 2017 week-to-view Diary and Calendar Range & month-to-view Family Planner Calendar
The 2017 Dodo Pad range is available in no less than seven different size formats to cater for every taste and organisational need. Choose from the week-to-view original family desk diary (spiral bound or loose-leaf), pocket-sized Mini Dodo Pad, Dodo Wall Pad Calendar (hangs on the wall!), A5 and Personal Organiser Filofax compatible refills or our biggest ever Dodo Pad, a universally compatible A4/US Letter size loose-leaf diary refill - that also comes with an optional clear binder.
Alternatively if you prefer a month-to-view organiser, choose our big wall hanging Family Planner Calendar.
To celebrate the start of our second half century (yes, the Dodo Pad is 50 years old and not extinct yet!), the entire diary range is being produced in full colour for the first time incorporating a subtle range of gentle muted colours. If you're an existing 'dodevotee' you may spot the difference and if you're new to it then we hope you love it!
The Dodo Pad is Britain's best loved and longest lived family diary-organizer-planner-calendar - ideal for a family of up to five people (extra family members may, at your discretion, be 'marginalised'). It's designed so that each person’s weekly activities can be seen with plenty of room on the opposite page for notes and the occasional (or regular) doodle. The variety of diary and calendar formats will suit various sizes of desk, pocket, briefcase or Filofax. We're developing an A6 organiser version too - details to follow!

Lord Dodo warns you however that this style of family organiser is highly addictive; a few long-term users are known to have tried to kick the Dodo Pad habit, only to return (much relieved) to this most desirable organiser after just a few fleeting months away. Features include:
- Calendar year format: January – December 2017 (with a couple of extra weekly grids either side to aid annual transition)
- 53 + weekly grids, each divided into daily sections with five columns, with perforated corners to mark the current week
- Week numbers noted at the top of each weekly grid
- A largely blank page opposite for jottings and doodles
- 100gsm 'excellent for writing on... even in fountain pen' absorbent paper (customers love our quality paper!)
- Includes all UK, USA, Australian, New Zealand and Canadian Public Holidays and many religious holidays
- Moon phases are shown so you know when the moon will light the sky :)
- Humorous illustrations, quotes and unusual anniversaries scattered throughout
- Forward year planners for 2017 and 2018 plus clear planning space
- Indodispensible data section to record important telephone numbers/email addresses etc.
- Handy ‘Stuff and Store’ pouch (in the Desk Diary and Wall Pad) to hold critical pieces of paper and, should you so desire, to keep the ‘Small-but-Perfectly-Formed’ Slimline Dodo Address Book
Family Diary, Wall Calendar, Weekly Organiser, Year Planner Research
The Dodo Pad's team of social researchers calculates that out of every ten harassed mothers, six are harassed because they can't remember what it was they know they have forgotten; four have remembered they have an appointment, a meeting or a family whatever, but have lost the piece of paper they wrote down the note or time on. Thanks to the Dodo Pad diary these causes of anxiety, at least, have now been eliminated.
Not only for the family
Lord Dodo's famous and utterly indodispensable Dodo Pad diary is not only intended for family use. This handy diary/organiser/planner/memo/doodle pad can be used by batchelors, spinsters, delivering tradesmen, teenagers, business executives or indeed by anyone who has a number of different things to remember every day of the week.
On or off the Wall?
The Dodo Wall Pad. A WEEKLY calendar – just like the Dodo Pad diary – for those who prefer to organise and plan life from the wall.
Lord Dodo and his inspired research team at Dodo Products Inc. took a giant leap forward some years back and created the Dodo Wall Pad. Once securely hammered into a wall, any fear that this calendar might be stolen by friends, neighbours or relatives who are unable to resist its bright colours and brilliant jokes is removed forever (or at least for the rest of the year).
This most marvellous of Lord Dodo's inventions now rivals the Dodo Pad family desk diary in homes where a fixed and immutable position is preferred. Like the Dodo Pad diary it can be complemented by a unique repositionable clear acetate page marker ('dodivider') to banish the repetition of regular appointments and committments.
The Dodo Family Planner Calendar - a MONTHLY wall planner with 5 columns, taking fresh inspiration each year from the Dodo Pad diary. If you prefer to 'see the entire MONTH at a glance' then Lord Dodo guarantees the same security for his Dodo Planner Calendar, as that enjoyed by users of the original Dodo Wall Pad.

Search inside or take a peek at the latest Acad-Pad and Dodo Pad diaries and wall calendars
Lord Dodo is dodelighted to offer you the chance to search inside, take a peek and look through a series of sample pages from his latest Acad-Pad and Dodo Pad diaries and wall calendars.
Available in a number of formats* to suit every organisational whim, budget, size of desk, kitchen counter, handbag, briefcase or rucksack, the Acad-Pad Diary and Wall Pad calendar are identical inside, as are the academic mid-year Dodo Pad diary and its wall-hanging companion.
* Please note: The sample pages shown from the ‘Search Inside’ downloadable pdfs are taken from the original desk diary. Whilst the basic design is identical in all sizes and formats, the page shape sometimes differs and therefore there may be more clear planning space above and below in other formats e.g. A5 and Personal Organiser Filofax compatible refills. Please also understand that we make the grid in the smaller formats as BIG as we possibly can within printing parameters. Both Acad-Pad and the Dodo Pad are almost entirely hand produced and take months of work each year. The grid and illustrations/designs in and around the grid are fixed and can only be increased/decreased in direct proportion.
