"Amazing Dryer Balls"...anyone use them? Do they work (as a replacement for chemical-y dryer sheets)?

Because these dryer balls
are an "as seen on TV" thing, all the warning flags for "useless, over hyped, under performing product" are up. I'm skeptical? If you need to say a product is "amazing," i'm tempted to believe it is not-so-amazing.
That said, i'm curious about using these to replace dryer sheets. We don't use dryer sheets in the loads of laundry we do that contain baby clothes (to avoid chemicals), and I think i'd just as soon avoid the chemicals of dryer sheets all together. Is a product like a "dryer ball" a good alternative (or would I be better served simply not using dryer sheets)?
The only discussions
i've found about them tend to be fairly neutral/across-the-board (from total waste to wow!
...from what i've read, the "reduced drying time" claim is pretty bogus (or at least hard to judge)
