Happy Anniversary to Miss Peabody Writes!

Hallooo dear Dodopadlers!  It’s Miss Peabody, with a very special post today indeed!

Today is the first anniversary of Miss Peabody Writes!  Smashing!!  I can hardly believe it has already been an entire year since I’ve entered cyberspace and started writing to you dear readers.  So much has happened in this year!

The past year has brought loads of excitement and fun here at Dodo Towers.  We have celebrated several new products, perhaps most notably our new line of Filofax-compatible Dodo Pad and Acad-Pad diary inserts!  I am terribly excited by these diary inserts.

We’ve even got our very own Dodo PersonalPOD to hold your personal size Dodo Pad or Acad-Pad diary inserts!

Also new this year is our “small but perfectly formed” Dodo Slim Line Address Book, which is purposely sized to slip into the back pocket of your desk-size Dodo Pad or Acad-Pad, and can be transferred to your new diary each year.

Another new addition this year is the crystal-clear write-on wipe-off page in the Dodo Pad Desk, Mini and Wall format diaries/calendars which can easily be moved week to week, eliminating having to re-write recurring weekly events!  Brilliant!  Lord Dodo never ceases coming up with fabulous solutions for our busy lives.

Other exciting events this year in and around Dodo Towers included the intrepid launch of The Doodle Car. Lord Dodo proudly sponsored The Doodle Car, in which three adventurous young men drove from the UK to Ulaan Batur to raise money and awareness for homeless children everywhere.  Lord Dodo decorated the Doodle Car with a doodle of his own!

We also celebrated National Doodle Day where Lord Dodo himself judged scads of doodles from Dodopadlers everywhere.  If you missed your chance to enter your doodle in the competition, fret not! It’s not too early to start practising your doodles to enter in next year’s competition. Find your entry form in your Dodo Pad or Acad-Pad diary in the week commencing February 7, 2011. Your doodle could be selected to win a prize!

I myself have had a terribly exciting year both at home and away. I was absolutely thrilled to attend the London Book Fair in April in Lord Dodo’s stead (after he was trapped in the Dodolomites when all aircraft were grounded due to the Icelandic ash cloud).  And I enjoyed a very snowy Hogmanay trekking in Glen Dodoe.

It has been an eventful year indeed.  And there’s plenty more to look forward to coming from Dodo Towers very soon!  There are several exciting new dodevelopments on the way. Without giving away too much, I can tell you that there are some entirely new products coming soon, and you will also notice updates to some well-loved Dodo Pad products.

How has the past year been for you?  And, what would you like to see in future posts of Miss Peabody Writes? Do post a comment and tell us all about it!

Here’s to many more posts in the future on Miss Peabody Writes!

Toodle-oo for now!

The Doodle Car!

Hallooo dear Dodopadlers!  It’s Miss Peabody here, with something completely different!

Dodo Pad are proud sponsors of The Doodle Car, which is a project involving “3 guys, 1 car, 10,000 miles and oodles and oodles of doodles!”

Three fine young men will drive from London to Ulaan Batur, Monglia (click here to see their route!) to raise money and awareness for homeless children around the world.  Along the way they will invite people they meet to draw their own doodle directly onto their car, to spread the message in the “universal language of the doodle.”  If you are interested, please do make a donation on their website.

Lord Dodo had hoped to attend the Doodle Party (which raised more than £1,000, congratulations lads!) and add his own doodle to the car, which you can see below:

Bringing the Mongolian version of the Dodo Pad diary to Ulaan Baatar!


However, unfortunately due to the extreme temperatures in London that day, he had to decline the invitation as he does not cope too well with the heat. He dispatched one of his trusty underlings to apply the doodle in rainprooof vinyl so that it will survive all matter of rain and shine en route…

Despite their busy schedule whilst preparing for their trip, the lads managed to pop by Dodo Towers in their Doodle Car!  Have a look!

They depart on 24th July on their long voyage.  During their journey you can track their progress by following them on Twitter (@theDoodleCar) and by following their blog.

Best of luck to you, gentlemen!

Toodle-oo for now!
