Customer Reviews

If you want a "Director's Clapboard" to use in production, do not buy this.

Great gift for a coworker who got promoted to director-- we all signed it and gave it to him.

I clapped it four times and the bottom piece fell off, leaving two small nails exposed.

So it's probably my stupid fault for not busting out a ruler and seeing that 8 inches was not the length of a standard clapboard. It's probably my stupid fault for not realizing you couldn't get even a basic clapboard for this price. Ok, I'm probably stupid.

That said, other products in this category have a key word like "Novelty" or "Decoration" or "Toy" to let you know this is not a real clapboard (although arguably you could use it if you want to look like a total moron). The fact that this product does not state anything of this nature in the description makes me feel mislead and therefore inclined to write a poor review.

If you want a souvenir or a toy, this will work fine for you. If you want a "Director's Clapboard" to use in production, do not buy this.

This is a toy. Do not use for actual video work. In fact, I wouldn't even give it to your kids. I clapped it four times and the bottom piece fell off, leaving two small nails exposed. It's made for orientaltrading.com. That should tell you something.

I have a 13-year old son with autism that likes to reenact scenes from movies, one of his favorite scenes is a gag reel after Toy Story. Problem was, no clapboard. He tried to jury rig some with cardboard but while it looked the part it simply wouldn't sound "right" to him. I got this clapboard for him as a desperate measure, and he really liked it. It is loud, the surface is easy to write on and it looks right.

On the downside, it is not very strong and will fall apart after some heavy use. For the cost it does the job, after it won't take any more duct tape I just buy him a couple more.

I purchased this as a theater prop. It was exactly what I needed and a great price as well. Thanks!

Bought this simple stage prop for $4.40 @ 1/11. I expected a novelty type item that may not last very long, and that's pretty much what it is.

This item is made of very fine particle board. It lacks durability. If your expectations are in the right place, then this director's clapboard should provide enough reasonable value.

Why is it that whenever I purchase an item, it tends to drop in price the next day ?...

I purchased this for my daughter for Christmas, who was also getting a pocket video camera. She was thrilled! It is ideal for pretend play and for aspiring young actors. It would also make a good decoration for a movie themed room. At first I thought it was defective as you could not raise the top of the clapboard, but the loosening of a screw corrected this problem. I would recommend this product.
