The "Botempi" toy clarinet seems a reasonably sturdy plastic toy instrument. It plays a C-Major scale, though the lower half-octave is of dubious tuning. This can be a problem if one wishes to use the toy clarinet in conjunction with other instruments (a toy piano or toy trumpet, for example). I'm a composer, and I wrote a little piece for this toy clarinet, the "Botempi" toy trumpet, the "House of Marbles" toy drum (highly recommended), and a Schoenhut toy piano (a fine instrument). I found that I was only able to reliably use the upper half-octave (G to C) of the toy clarinet when accompanying the toy piano or even the toy trumpet.

The sound of both the "Botempi" toy wind instruments is close to that of the harmonica (actually, it's a cross between an harmonica and the medieval crumhorn), so don't expect a "clarinet" sound. Still, it's easy to use and sturdy, assuming gentle play. If you don't need the pitches to be accurate, and you don't need a toy clarinet that sounds like a clarinet (which may not exist), then this is an amusing and smile-inducing toy instrument.

We purchased this as well as the trumpet and sax. We like them all, but this one is by far the best. It is the easiest for our 3 year old and 18 month old to play. The keys are the easiest to move (some of the sax's keys are very hard to press, and no sound comes out without at least one key pressed - except for the high whistle that can be produced if you blow really hard). The mouthpiece on the clarinet is the easiest for the kids to use. The trumpet is less fun since it is harder to play recognizable songs due to the small amount of keys, but they seem to like the way it feels to hold it. The trumpet and clarinet are the easiest to hold. We have had them for over 8 months and everything is holding up well. We are very glad we purchased all of them, but if someone is able to only get one, or is looking to give one as a present or something - we HIGHLY recommend getting the clarinet.

Our three year old loves this good looking (for plastic)silver toy clarinet that allows him to play along with his favorite classical CD's (he's a big Baby Einstein fan). For the price it's definitely worth the fun it's facilitated. We've got the whole set (clarinet, trumpet, and sax). The sax has made it through four months of regular use (not being used as a substitute toy drum though) with no defects- the other two instruments have each had a single button/key break.

This is a nice music toy, but it's far from perfect – especially for a three year old (or younger). I'd actually recommend just getting a recorder, which is cheaper and simpler to play.

First of all, this toy only makes sound when a button is pressed. So your kid not only has to get the hang of how to blow in it, but they have to have the dexterity to hold a button down at the same time. It would be better if it were more like a recorder (or a real clarinet) which make noise just by blowing, then the buttons/notes can be explored later. I see why this would be difficult given the current design, but it's something for parents to note.

Second, the hole you have to blow in is awkwardly placed for a tiny kid's mouth. It's located about a half-inch from the very end of the mouthpiece, so they have to put the whole end of the instrument in their mouth. The hole is also on an angled surface. It would be much better if there were just a hole at the very tip of the mouthpiece (like a recorder or real clarinet.)

These two issues combined make it pretty tough for a very little kid to play. I'd wait if you're on the fence about whether or not your kid is ready for it, and maybe just get a simple recorder instead.

Otherwise, it seems pretty sturdy overall (though the buttons are pretty flimsy), and once a kid got the hang of it, you can play actual music (I was playing Jingle Bells in about a minute.) It sort of sounds like a kazoo, by the way.

My 5-year old grandson loves it. Went marching around the house playing it. Hadn't figured out how to make different notes yet. Now he want the sax after seeing the picture on the box.
Complaints are that it sounds too much like a harmonica even though it will play a full octave scale. However, the notes go higher instead of lower as you press on lower keys.......backwards compared to a real clarinet.
Main positive feature is the ability to produce your own music and help initiate future interest in a real clarinet ( or any wind band instrument).
Recommended for youngsters too young and small for a real instrument.

We got this for my daughter's 5h birthday because she asked for a Clarinet. She really loved this toy a lot and played it all the time. The problem is that the keys are very cheaply made and are continuously breaking off the body of the toy. We have lost most of the keys so now the clarinet only plays one note. Not recommended.

We bought the Bontempi saxophone along with this clarinet for my 3 year-old daughter's best friend who absolutely loves it. His 7-year old sister isn't so thrilled because he plays it every waking minute. Fortunately it sounds pretty good for an inexpensive toy so her objection is probably because he's so blissfully happy and what big sibling wants that?? We bought two of these instruments so the little ones could have their own band but we've found big sister playing sometimes too. Busted!

Seriously, though, the kids really have fun with it and we hope it fosters a life-long love of music. Cliche? Maybe. But that doesn't mean it can't be true.
