It's a great idea and has led to several hours of focussed play. Great stuff.

Busy B 2015 Desktop Calendar with Storage Pockets,&hellip by BusyB
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a bright and cheerful looking small desk calendar for 2015. The design feature is that each month has a well built pocket integrated into the page helping you to store small invitations or other odds ends such as appointment cards that you might want during the month. It's hardly revolutionary, but it is a nice touch and the whole thing is well built and sturdy. It certainly helps to keep your desk top organised and reduces clutter. It would also make a nice gift as the design is nicely modern and would fit most home design schemes.
