The perfect month-to-view organiser
If you love the Dodo Pad style but would prefer a more traditional month-to-view wall-hanging calendar, then the 2023 Dodo Pad Family Planner Calendar combines the two flawlessly.
This monthly calendar takes the ingenious ideas of Lord Dodo's original Dodo Pad Diary design, along with a few of his famous illustrations, and fits them into a month-to-view layout. The result is an exceptionally exquisite work of dodelightful genius that will add a splash of colour (and first-rate wit) to any kitchen wall.
All the useful familiar features that the classic Dodo Pad is known for are here in this 30.5cm x 30.5cm calendar (30.5cm x 61cm when opened). Each day is split into five columns, one for each member of the family, so that everyone can log their activities and stay in sync with each other. It's never been easier to see at a glance how the whole month is going to pan out for the entire family.
Alternatively, if you've got a particularly packed schedule and need to segment your day into different sections, you can keep all five columns to yourself. Reminders, deadlines, dates, and appointments – you can jot them all down in the relevant columns. After all, most modern lives are far too hectic for only one solitary square per day. The Dodo Family Planner Calendar gives everyone enough room so that families aren't left fighting for space in a tiny box.
Dodelightful doodles each month
Always keen to show off his impeccable doodling skills, Lord Dodo himself has selected a few of his proudest pieces of artwork to display at the top of every month. Each drawing has a clever connection to a notable date within that month, with an explanation beneath – it's any unconventional history buff's dream! Next to each illustration is a blank space for extra notes or reminders that are especially important. Or, if you're feeling inspired by the selected works from His Lordship's oeuvre, you can always do some doodling of your own.
Disclaimer: We are not responsible for any family arguments that arise when Mum realises she can no longer use the notes section because little Belinda wanted to practise her art.
More than just a calendar
As well as all that, you also get a forward planner for the full year and a page to write indodispensable data, such as important contact details, birthdays and anniversaries. On each monthly page, all the major public and religious holidays for the UK, US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Ireland are noted, and we've even represented the moon phases via symbols so that lunar enthusiasts can keep track of whether it's waning, waxing, full, or new.
All this Dodo genius is displayed on our highly acclaimed, responsibly sourced, matt-coated 112gsm paper that is absorbent and excellent for writing on no matter which pen you use. It's simply a marvellous monthly calendar for any fantastic family.
Psst – if you're all for a wall-hanging calendar but would prefer one that adopts the same week-to-view layout as the diary, take a look at our Dodo Wall Pad, which is identical in content to the original Dodo Pad desk diary.
