I wouldn't purchase them. If I got one, I would think it was unique, but that is about it.
My kids are older, but I generally kept the goodie bags at a buck or two. I would stock up on crayons and stuff during back to school and make little art bags for their birthdays.
The more $$$ goodies were tie-ins to the party--apron and rolling pin for our "make your own pizza" party, and I made shirts for a bowling party. We also used shirts for our "crazy" party--they were clipped to the fencen and sprayed with dye. Those ideas were closer to $3 like you mention. Once my dd wanted a candy party. I didn't want to load the kids with candy so we made candies instead (with the guests). Each guest got to take home a box of candies to share with their families.
