My 5 year old has recently begum playing with the tiny little lego sets. How do you get stuck legos apart? I know there is a piece we can buy from the lego site, but in the meantime what do you all use instead?

A plain old ordinary table knife. (Not a sharp serrated steak knife.) Just the dull knife that you would let your 4 year old use to spread butter onto bread. Just use the knife as a jimmy to insert the knife between the two stuck-together pieces, and wiggle the knife up and down until the pieces gradually come apart. Just make sure that if the pieces fly apart, that it's on hard floor where it's easy to find, and it would be better if your child is watching as a spotter so that he/she can watch where the pieces land. Works every single time without fail.
