With a child you have to remove the legs first; then you can see the end of the head pin inside the body. With a pair of thin pliers you can sqeeze the split ends together and pull the head out.

I moved this here for the benefit of others (like me and Meg) who have trouble getting the kid figures apart. Any more tips on how to do this would be greatly appreciated. :-*

I am thinking of a combination of this method with the spanish/rubber band method

Maybe with the pressure of the elastic bands trying to push off the head, and the compression of the neck flanges, I can get results

Here is a method; you'll need a tool like this (it is used to drive in nails):

You push the tool firmly against the split end of the head pin inside the body (some force is needed). The head will come off then.
