                  Comments about PERPETUAL CALENDARS:

                  The calendar itself is beautifully designed and works just as advertised. The string connecting the magnetic ball for the month was a bit bent and twisted but I believe that will straighten itself out with some use.

                  The one complaint I have is that the leg used to prop the calendar up is made of, and looks like, cheap plastic. If it was simply changed to an aluminum and reflective leg, it would both feel and look much better.

                        I was hesitant about buying this calendar when I read that it was made out of plastic, but based on positive comments from reviewers I decided to buy anyway. Honestly, I wish I hadn't. The calendar looks very cheap and feels very flimsy and I was a bit embarassed to gift it to my husband. I think the design is awesome but the plastic construction is really tacky. Made out of a different material it would be excellent.
