The Dodo Pad diary has been a fixture in British households for nearly 45 years and counting. It started as the original desk size diary, and now comes in a variety of sizes and formats including this A5 Filofax-compatible insert.

In the front of the diary there is a very handy year view planner for 2011:
Here are a few examples of the weekly layout. Every week is different with art, interesting facts and humor. (Click photos to enlarge.)
There are facts about history:
And just plain fun stuff like International Talk Like a Pirate Day!
The week is set up in a grid format so that you can track each member of the family, or alternatively use the daily boxes for morning/ afternoon/ evening/ to dos, or any number of ways. You could even use it differently each week.

In the back of the diary there are several pages for notes and forward planning, and a year view planner for all of 2012:
So if you're bored of the same old diary layouts, tired of your oh-so-serious diary inserts, or just want to add some fun to your Filofax, I highly recommend the Dodo Pad diary Filofax inserts!
I'm bringing this with me to the Philofaxy meetup this weekend so you Philofaxers attending can check it out!
