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.

                My college age son really likes this gift. His only regret is that he can't really show it off on his messy desk in his apartment. He is waiting to use it once he graduates and can bring it in to use on his desk at work where he can show it off.

                    I purchased this for my Dad's birthday gift not knowing if he'd like it, and he LOVED it! It was an instant conversation piece, and became the perfect accessory for his office. Cannot recommend this enough!

                      Got this for someone who recently got promoted. They absolutely love it! It's easy to use and looks great on their desk. The small size works perfectly - doesn't take up too much space. The only thing I would recommend to the supplier is that they include an extra magnetic ball since it's easy to lose it.
