Product Description

In the beginning... some time back in the deep recesses of the last century around 1966 (goodness, is that almost 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 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. More than forty five years on, Lord Dodo, in his munificence, has bowed dutifully (an unusual position for him) to the pressures of modern times and developed a range of alternative formats to suit the individual and ever widening needs of his esteemed customers. More recently the calendar year Dodo Pad has been joined by its younger offspring, the equally acclaimed mid year Acad-Pad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Diary in the World 3 Aug 2010
By Sophie
I've had these diaries for college for the past two years, and they really are the best you can get. I love them. They make it really easy for you to plan things out; each double page has a generously sized grid, with columns you can label yourself depending on how you like to organise your week, with a blank left hand page for notes, doodles etc. I'm getting this for University this year, I'm the scattiest person ever and they help to keep my life on track :) Reccommended, definitely.

I cannot fault Amazon, it is unbeatable for prices, delivery and customer services, and i cannot fault this planner, it has an excellent set up for planning many activities in one day and is fun to use. I don't understand though why Amazon are supplying Acad-Pads for the previous year, i accidently bought the pad for 2010/11 when 2011/12 should have been starting. I didn't realise until i had been using it for a few weeks that all the dates were wrong. Do purchase this, but make sure you order the right year!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love my dodo diary! 20 Aug 2011
By Katie
I was pleased to find this on Amazon last September, ready for the new academic year. It has proved really useful. I doubted that I would use it very much, but it goes with me everywhere now and I have just purchased a new one for 2011-2012. People always comment on how they want one!

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay 9 April 2011
A very interesting little pad with a lot going on inside it, lots of fun doodle bits all over. The only bad thing is after 2weeks it was falling apart, the ringbinder started comin loose and it was difficult to open. Also not really big enough spaces to write in. However, despite this I do like the pad, if it hadn't fallen apart i'd of given 4 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent transaction 12 Feb 2011
I am so happy to review this item, as I was thrilled to bits with it and the service I got from Amazon was second to none.
I have always wanted a Dodo Acad-Pad desk diary but was pleased to discover Amazon were selling it at an extremely competitive rate.
Many thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great diary for uni 9 Oct 2010
By ldycrom
Great diary for the new academic year. I normally buy a page a day diary and was a little worried that I wouldnt have enough space. However couldnt be happier with this purchase. I especially love the blank page opposite each week. I use this for notes, book lists and catalogue numbers for the library when searching for books.

5.0 out of 5 stars This diary knows my mind! 2 Oct 2010
Being someone who doesn't normally bother to write in a diary, and even abandoned the diary provided for me at uni, this has really improved my organisation! There's lots of space for my creativity and notes on various miscellany on the left, while the nicely laid-out planner on the right allows me to not only know what I have to do on a particular day, but lets me know what I have to do throughout the week, so it really helps to make me think ahead. There's also a lot of space around it for extra notes and/or memos and spaces at the top to title the columns.
There's also forward planners for deadlines and birthdays for both 2010/2011 and 2011/2012 and an appendix/folder thing at the back that I have yet to find a use for! Great for any college/university student who like me can never be bothered to using a regular diary and resort to using numerous sticky notes and hand memos.
