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.
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.
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.
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.
