Question: Hello, I have a five year old child. He loves playing with toys. This is all fine and good until he accidentally flushed a plastic toy down the toilet. Now the toilet in question has all sorts of problems. So, here is my question. If a child put a plastic toy down toilet how can you get it out?
Answer: So, your child flushed a toy down the toilet. I have heard of this happening so often. Unfortunately, this can get a little tricky because it isn’t as simple as just plunging the toy out.
There are typically two ways in which you can retrieve a toy out of a clogged toilet. The first way is to get it out the way it came in. Now, before you pull up your sleeves and run over to the toilet to start fishing around it is important that you read this next part, you are going to need to purchase a closet auger. It is basically a tool with a hook on the end that can allow you to retrieve the toy. It isn’t going to be easy but if you spend enough time and make your hook the right size you should be able to nab that pesky toy.

Unfortunately, the second way to get the toy out of the toilet is to simply call a plumber but try to do it with the closet auger first so you can save some money before calling in the plumbers.
