It’s waiting for me at home! I haven’t seen it yet. But I know I will be thrilled! Love my Dodo!!

Lord Dodo's ingenious organiser is here in A5 size 

Feeling exasperated by a packed schedule with a never-ending To-Dodo list? Struggling to remember all your daily tasks? Simply put, are you positively fed up with juggling the pressures of modern life?

You're not alone. We've all been there, including Lord Dodo of the Doodle Empire, and that's why he designed the incredible Dodo Pad diary – perhaps the most groundbreaking invention in the world of planners (well, it's at least in the top ten). 

The A5 version of the original 2025 Dodo Pad desk diary is a huge hit with our loyal Dodopadlers, and we're sure you'll love it too. With dimensions of 21cm x 14.8cm, this A5 diary is slightly smaller than the original, but it features all the same wonderful doodle-filled content. If you're looking for an introduction to the colourfully illustrated world of Lord Dodo, then this easy-to-carry-around A5 diary may be the ideal place to start.

Plan with precision  

This spiral-bound week-to-view diary will help simplify your scheduling throughout the whole calendar year. Its slightly smaller size makes it great for both individual use and sharing with the entire family, and it can easily fit into any bag. Practical and unique, the Dodo Pad is unlike any planner you've ever had before. 

What makes Lord Dodo's brainchild so indodispensable? For one thing, it features a week-to-view grid layout to enhance any muddled individual's organisation. 

The grid system divides each day of the week into five columns, giving each family member their own column to write in their weekly activities. Because each user can see everyone's plans at a glance throughout the whole week, it's easy for the family to stay in sync. (If you'd like to see an example of the grid layout in action, and get a taste of the joy of Dodo, click here for some sample pages).

Appointments, deadlines, family celebrations, reminders – whatever crops up in family life can be recorded on the Dodo Pad's high-quality, super-absorbent A5 paper so that everyone is on the same page (figuratively and literally). The days of haranguing absent-minded spouses because they forgot yet another anniversary will be long gone, and little Jimmy will never 'accidentally' miss the after-school chess club ever again.  

The A5 Dodo Pad isn't just for families. If you're one of the lucky ones who has a particularly frantic schedule morning, noon, and night, you can keep the diary all to yourself and use the columns to split your packed day into five. 

But there's more. After all, this is a Dodo product, created by distinguished doodler Lord Dodo himself, and it wouldn't be worthy to carry his lordship's name without his unique and unusual illustrations theming each week, offering a new surprise at every turn of the page. The A5 diary is also filled with fascinating quotes, packed full of puns, and adorned with dodubious historical facts about Lord Dodo's eccentric ancestry to keep you inspired. And when inspiration does hit, each weekly grid has a mostly blank page opposite for you to draw your own magnum opus. 

In short, the A5 Dodo Pad has everything a diary needs to prevent you from feeling extinct.
