I absolutely LOVE this planner! From the layout to the paper!
I'm a convert! Did not expect to love the 52gsm paper, as usually anything under 68 ghosts too much for me (I'm strictly a fountain pen user). While there is a little ghosting, it's nowhere near what I expected. Also, I'm in LOVE with the layout. Finally, a book that functions the way I need it to (Month > that month's weeks > monthly review > next month preview > month > weeks again, all paginated in time order, not clumped together by type of time). This year I've tried: Take A Note, Nolty, Hobonichi A6 English, Hobonichi Cousin, and Mark's Style weekly. None of them were quite what I wanted--either the layout didn't work for me, or the paper wasn't right. I started a new job in June, so despite it being half way through the year, I took the opportunity to treat myself to a fresh planner, and this one was on the list. I'm glad I went for it. The color of the paper is perfect, not too white or yellow. The pre-printed ink is subtle enough not to be distracting, and all the shades harmonize nicely. It's a pleasure to use. The photo I'm attaching shows some fountain pen ink tests using Kaweco Perkeo <F>, Narwhal <M>, Franklin Christoph cursive italic <F>, and Twsbi Eco <F>. It's hard for me to stay in the grid, but that's probably an operator error problem, not a planner issue. I only wish this book had 365 dailies in it. But that would probably make it too big. Next order, I'll definitely get a blank notebook to go along with it. If you're like me and have a lot of aesthetic requirements for your planner in addition to functional ones, take a gamble on this one.
I was looking for a planner similar to the stalogy notebooks. I wanted it plain, without additional eye catching colors, U.S. holidays already embedded, and spacious. The A5 turned out to be perfect for me. I tried all the sizes and I prefer a little white space (enough to add a single sticker and a strip of washi) to keep it clean but still have a little deco to make it fun. I have so many others planners but I repeatedly come back to this. ❤️
Wish I’d discovered this planner sooner. Love the paper and the layout suits my needs perfectly.
Simply the best planner out there.
Love this planner! I had bought the B6 and was looking forward to trying out the A5. Love, love, love, love. I have fallen in love with the Wonderland planners. Highly recommended.
This is my favorite planner. The tomoe paper holds the colors of my fountain pen ink without bleed through. The lines are there for guidance but are light enough to disregard. Having the sections grouped together makes it easier to fill in data. I am so happy I found this company and their line of planners and notebooks.
I love this planner. The weekly pages are perfection for me and the paper quality is unmatched.
I've been using different journals/planners over the years including Hobonichi, Moleskien, etc. This planner is perfect combination of planner with plenty free space for meeting notes and of course, doodling. The Tomoe River paper is awesome, great for using fountain pens.
It's finally the planner I wanted. Tired of switching planners and not finding the right fit, but no more! I love the quarterly pages and the monthly review pages. I finally have lots of options for goal setting. Just wish I had found it sooner!
I started the year off with a B6 but found I was missing a weekly layout and needed a little more room for my daily. I had not heard of Wonderland 222 until I saw a picture of their table at Go Wild on Instagram. I explored their site and decided to try their A5. It appeared to have just that little extra room and weekly layout I was looking for. Little did I know I was going to love this planner as much as I do. It has everything and then some. The quality of paper is suburb, the trackers are outstanding, I appreciate the weeks set up right after the month and the A5 daily page is exactly what I was looking for. I have even found a purpose for the quarters and will be using them for medical. It would be perfection to have the whole year, with 365 daily pages, within the one book though. For now, I will be going back to purchase the A5 notebook . I am also extremely pleased to support an American company.
I mostly will use this for work planning. I really like how communicative the sellers are, they are super nice! -This is my first experience with Tomoe paper, I don't like it really, too slick for me. I'm an artist and like a bit of tooth to paper. I knew this was a possibility. - It wasn't 100 percent clear from website if the cover was hard or soft. I would prefer a hardcover for sketching with planner in hand. -I like the quarterly calendars and yearly overview at front. The yearly overview is a bit small though, I would prefer if the yearly calendar took the whole page. -The weekly spread is nice. - I would like to have a few pages at front for yearly goal planning. I probably will not do any routine tracking. -Size is nice.
This planner is amazing! I love all the spreads and how versatile it is. I have found planner peace and plan on using it again next year. I like the paper better than the hobonichi, it dries faster and handles my favorite gel pen a bit better. I am using the a5 and love the size of the colums. A full size box fits perfectly without covering up the times.
I love this planner mostly for the Tomoe River Paper. Then, that there are quarterly sections, tackers and additional pages. A5 is my favorite size to plan in. After a shipping "hiccup" involving several orders, Wonderland 222 was super professional, on top of things, and graciously replaced all orders. Best customer service I experienced in a long time!
Wonderful - this is by far my favorite planner. Will buy again as soon as I run out of pages. This company is amazing. There was a shipping issue caused by UPS and the company was super fast to reply and fix. I’m now a life-long customer because of this!
The shipping is incredibly fast! So impressed by that. The paper is phenomenal and it has. Everything that I need: monthly and weekly, a routine/habit tracker and pages at the back that you can make your own! It’s perfect for me!
The overall functionality is perfect with how the week is laid out and love the quality of the paper as it does not bleed. Very pleased with my first time purchase. Will definitely be using a new planner each successive year.
This is the best planner! The months and weeks start on Mondays! The size is perfect and it’s light. So it is great to carry with you daily. Every section is useful and well designed. Thank you for adding ribbons this year. I am still adding an envelop at the end of the planner, a pen loop (very necessary), and an elastic band to keep the planner together. So, it’s a ‘project’ for sure, but I just love this planner. Next year, can you please add a purple color planner (like you have in notebooks). Thank you for the great product!
The gift of blank pages. Simplicity provides free flowing use in design; dates and lines whisper structure and form only when you want it and disappear when you don't. I use the books to elevate joy: insights, golden moments, quotes, sweet reminder. A sketch of mental snapshots. All contained in rich velvety covers in gorgeous colors. The paper is even better in person than described. And it should be! What is worthy of remembering belongs on paper as exquisite as a hummingbird in flight. Opening this book is like walking into any sacred space. The paper welcomes whatever arises.
I’ve been using this planner for the past 3 months, after using the Hobonichi Cousin for the past 3 years. I love the extra pages at the back of the planner. I also love the space in the weekly spread. If I could change anything, it would be to have the monthly pages all together.
I like all the thoughtful extra pages (habit tracking, past month and future month pages for goals and reflections, index pages), and the weekly layout works perfectly for my needs. Fast shipping, pretty packaging...I'm a second time customer and will continue to buy from this shop!
Like the size and capacity to record pretty much everything I need to keep track of.
Great experience overall. Shipped right away and arrived ahead of schedule in perfect condition. Contents are wonderful. Only thing that is hard for me is the light ink. Some people like this because of the flexibility to write over it, but I need the structure and find myself having to trace most numbers w pen just so I can see them.
Finally! I have my hands on a Wonderland222. Love of Tomoe River paper practically ensured I would be satisfied with a W222 journal. The forest green is a rich, classy colour (says she who normally adores vibrant, bright colors). My sized A5 is amble for journaling. This journal seems to have everything most writers would like: Index is provided, the pages are numbered (yay); yearly view, why they have even added quarters (who knew); trackers - for EACH month of the year, WOW; notes and overview space; ability to begin two months before a new year (that's very cool); full month layout at the beginning of each month; finally at the end daily pages - 77 of them. As a journaler vs. a dedicated "Bullet" journaler I almost feel quilty saying I need more journaling pages at the back or wherever. I want a journal that is dated and page numbered - two pages per day would be perfect. A timeline on the left for daily schedule/appointments/activities and the right side for journaling. THAT would be perfect in my book. Blank pages at the back of that would be icing on the cake. ALL with tomoe river paper. What do ya think? Is this something Wonderland222 would consider offering? Seriously, I would like to know the answer because I am already looking forward to 2023 for my journaling needs. I simply must cut down on the current seven journals I am using. For now Hobonichi Techo Avec is getting my attention. But Wonderland222 could surely get the business if I could have the specs mentioned. Thanks for asking for my opinion/experience. Namaste, L
I love all of the different options in this book! My only feedback is I wish the grid size was a bit larger (closer to 5mm maybe??). I struggle writing small enough to make it work without skipping lines. But I received the product quickly, the layout is amazing, and overall am extremely pleased!
Love it! This is my planner peace.
I love this planner! It is the perfect balance between flexibility and structure.
I love the undated. I can start it whenever I want. I also gave one to a friend. These planners have thought of everything I could possibly need. I use mine much like a bullet journal with the pages in the back.
Love this planner!
This is my first time using this planner. I like parts of it very much, but there are other parts that could use some attention. For example, the lines are so confusing. Because of the ghosting of the lines you can see the back page lines through the front of the page I am working on in the monthly section. It makes it very hard to see the lines. Maybe if the lines lined up with the back page, it would be clearer to see the lines and be more defined. The second is, the months should be all together and the weeks separate in their own section. (This would also help with the ghosting of the lines from the back page, because the back page is the weeks page.) It also makes it easier to flip back and forth from month to month when planning a work and school schedule. And third (which is just a suggestion) maybe put the monthly tracker in the back of the planner instead of the front. (or even have a separate little booklet only for the tracker and some note pages for each month of the tracker) Doing this would free up more pages in the planner then you can add more note pages to the notes section. But over all, I really like the style of the pages and also you were able to fit so much into this planner. I will continue to work with this planner this year and see how it works for me. Thank you so much. Always, Nelana
Absolutely love this planner!!
I love love love this planner! The paper quality and size are perfect for my needs and the muted colors are gorgeous. My brush pen and Staedtler write beautifully on it. No smear or bleed through whatsoever.
I love the layout and the fact that my whole year is in one book.
Having used a Hobonichi Techo in the past I'm finding the Wonderland 222 A5 so much more suitable for my style of planning. I love the layout, the size and the pale grey grid is ideal for stickers and washi. All this and tomboe river paper too! Thank you for making my perfect planner. Have a wonderful Christmas Karen
The best planner ever, I've already started my 2022. Started using mine in late 2020, it has helped me keep my life and tasks on track. I love the different sections, i use my monthly overview for budget, weekly spread for tasks/appts, blanks for other notes. I don't use the habit tracker as much, or the monthly view. The paper is great for fountain pens and I've seen lovely shading and sheening with inks that i didn't know could do either! The spine on mine eventually split but I've got the habit of leaving a thick pen in between pages as a 'bookmark,' and i see this more as user-created error as it took over a year of use to split. I do think unfortunately the 2022 uses new stock Tomoe River, but what can you do? And it seems to only have one attached ribbon bookmark (2021 had 2). Regardless i love this product and plan to buy a blank notebook when i finish my current journal. Thanks y'all, keep up the awesome work!
Really like the book. Must use caution while writing on the paper but takes some getting use to. Could be a little cheaper for what it is.
I love this product! I love the paper and the layout. It's so simple to use and a joy to write on. I carry it with me every day.
Really nice planner. The cover has a nice soft feel to it. My needs would be better met with more daily pages instead of the overview and review pages, but everyone has different needs. Overall, a great planner.
I’ve been using the Wonderland 222 since 2020. I bullet journal to keep me on track but I like more of a planner style. What I like is the A5 planner allows me to combine both planning and bullet journaling. It became cumbersome for me to draw out my weeks in my journals, the aspect of the planner that I prefer. While the daily pages are used by many, I prefer to use my daily pages for notes or to diary my work during the day. I can put collections in the separate notebook for all the projects I work on. This planner fits all my needs. Thank you so much, Wonderland 222!
I have truly found planner peace!! My before the pen spread for Thanksgiving! Love that it allowed me to start in November instead of January!
This is the best planner I’ve found for work! Generous weekly layouts, quarterly pages, and monthly review & planning pages make tasks and projects easy to manage. To make it even better, put the year overview on 4 pages, ditch the overly detailed monthly trackers, and make it a January start so those extra pages can be used for daily notes/anything.
The layout is very thoughtful and I feel comfortable with how my schedule is now organized. It wasn't big crazy new system to learn, rather just an intuitive pre-made bullet journal. The color of ink is very subtle and easy to write and draw on top of. Love the texture of the paper, it's that classic Tomoe River goodness for fountain pens.
A wonderful planner. Perfect trade in for my Hobonichi and from a US company. :)
