Can't say that I have, but I don't imagine it takes them all that long to cut them using a laser cutter, either. So it's possible they are able to price them that inexpensive due to the cost savings in cutting them.

I dunno - at $20, wouldn't be that much to spend to see if they're okay....

Any luck with the BP foamie? For $20 bucks, how bad could it be...I'm interested in trying a few.

I have the BP "Critter" Seems to be well made enough. Good quality foam. Fairly clean cuts. Worth the money IMHO.
