How do I remove a pencil thats been flushed down the toilet?

Question by Geezuz: How do I remove a pencil thats been flushed down the toilet?
My three year old little niece flushed a full sized pencil down the toilet, and now its stuck somewhere in the pipes and is causing back ups.

It’s been in there about 10 days now.

Short of trying to reach into the pipe, is there any other way to pick that thing out? Maybe a product that could break the pencil?

It is probably in the P-Trap in the bottom of the toilet. You could remove the toilet from the floor and get it out, or get a short flexible snake and break it out. I have a 2′ flexible grabber that would probably grab it and pull it out. Anything flexible that you can push down the toilet and it will follow the curvature might break it and send it on its way.
