I've seen other reviewers say that the set was pocket sized and easy to put in your purse, which I can agree with if you are separating just a planner or two from the rest. But if you are actually planning ahead you likely want to carry at least several months worth together. Now, I have a big purse but if I were to put this into it the set would immediately sink to the bottom, get battered around, and way me down. If you don't keep them in the case they are small enough that you risk permanently misplacing them.
I think the set is more geared toward recording the happenings of your, or your families life for posterity instead of whipping them out to keep track of soccer practices and hair appointments. They would probably be a nice keepsake and far more practical sitting on a desk.
This ensemble contains a hard-cover binder with a nifty black elastic. The black elastic is like a garter belt that keeps the binder closed. The binder also has a cute pull-out pocket. Inside the binder are 12 booklets, each 9 centimeters by 14 centimeters. Each booklet has a flexible vinyl cover, where each booklet has a BIG NUMBER in front (one for each month) and a different color, that is, purple, violet, blue, navy blue, gray, turquoise, red, maroon, black, olive green, indigo, and chartreuse. The ensemble also provides a sheet of decals or stickers, each with the name of a month, and also stickers with the numbers one to twelve. This is all very nifty and cute.
Inside the front cover is the writing, "In case of loss, please return to: _____________ As a reward: $ ____________. Further inside the book, there is a 2-page calendar for the entire year, a 6-page calendar with a space for each day (a space for jotting notes), a two page spread showing holidays for most of the countries in the world, a two page map of the world. This is followed by about 30 pages, where one page is devoted to each day of the month, with plenty of room for jotting down notes.
On the good side, the ensemble is very cute. It is a perfect gift for a child between the ages of 8 to 16. They will adore the colors, and the "official" look of the ensemble, with the elastic garter and the sturdy vinyl covers, will make the child feel important and like a grown-up. For an adult who has a real need to jot down things on a paper calendar, where the paper calendar takes the format of a booklet (suitable for slipping into a shirt pocket), then this will make a fine gift. On the critical side, I am not sure how many adults would have need for this ensemble. Most adults have software tools for keeping them aligned with the calendar, for example, MICROSOFT OUTLOOK. As such, this ensemble might reasonably be characterized as "retro."
Very nice paper and perfect size to carry with daily for jotting things down
only thing i do wish did not have numbers on them and not sure every single one needs all the xtra pages
with information that i do not need. Would have been nice if they would have taken those pages and made them blank or give more for the date pages to write on.
Love that I can keep them all together once they are done and be handy to look back over the year on.
They fit perfect in my small book i carry with me and can even fit it into my wallet that is bigger than a checkbook size.
To be clear this is not for someone who is used to a high tech way to keep track of your schedule or even for someone who has a very hectic schedule and you need to check very far into your year as you would have to carry around several of them to keep tabs on months ahead.
For myself i did not get these so much to use as a planner but more as a way to always have something with me for jotting down all those things my kids do and say that i wish i had record of as they are growing up far too fast and so many times i wish i could go back and remember something that was said. This way too i can look back at an entire year and see all the things we did together. So yes for my needs i guess will serve more as a daily journal than a planner.
Price I do not think that the retail listed is worth it but maybe if you have someone who is a writer or more on the artsy side or someone who still loves to take pen and paper in hand for their thoughts then when the price is under $20 might make a nice gift for them.
I also have to say if you are someone who is used to keeping track of your busy schedule on a tech device this is no way going to replace that in fact not even going to replace most designs of yearly planners but if you are someone who like myself is looking for a way to maybe jot down a thought or moment as you go through your busy life and want to one day look back at things that happened to your over the year then this is something you could use.
