I agree wholeheartedly - but:

The actual plastic is a closely inspected highly accurate moulding, the "swab" is a very finely constructed lint free item and the packaging must cost a small fortune.
Additionally there is only a small market for the item, so mass production savings are unlikely.
Then you must add marketing, transport and overhead costs.

Agreed - they ask silly money for the items, but it is pay up, or go without!
