I realize it's regarding products sold As Seen on TV, which have a dubious reputation to begin with, but I'm wondering whether anyone has experience with the knockoff products that have cropped up in droves lately. I mean, I did actually wind up buying a knockoff pillow pet for someone as a gift. It was smaller and the design wasn't quite as cute, but as a gift for a kid on a holiday it worked out. Far as I know, it took the kid about six to eight months of nightly cuddling and some rough play for its eye to fall out, which was fixed easily anyways. Granted, I feel like knockoff products are made for this purpose in life anyways, but I have no idea how actual Pillow Pets hold up, so I don't know if I got out of a potentially ridiculous deal, anyways. I'd like to compare one of these products to a knockoff at some point.
