Vast improvement on the old one that came out when I was a kid. And I love how it works with Technic type pieces as well.
But not worth the money to buy one. They are coming packaged with so many sets at the moment you're better off just getting one that way.
I ended up with so many I was giving them away.
In short get your hands on one, but just get a cool set that comes with it already. Because every Lego fan would really want more Legos to use it on.

Great review! You are right that this comes in many of the large sets now days. I especially like the way it helps with tiles.
If you don't have one of these I can picture your LEGO collection. Teeth marks, scratches, broken parts, etc. If you buy one of these, building (and destoying) anything will be a breeze.
Pulls apart all those pesky little pieces
Saves you from the dentist bill for fixing your broken teeth, caused by trying to bite the pieces apart.
If you buy two of these just put them on the top and bottom of the two stubborn pieces, squeeze, and you can seperate every tough piece.
Overall, I gave this product full marks, because the usefullness is definitely worth $1.69, and it will remove pieces faster allowing you to build faster. Seriously, you should buy these, you will love them as soon as you use them.
Leg godt! (Play well!)
This small, unassuming tool doesn't look like it would separate almost any two Lego pieces that have become stuck too tightly together, but I have not had it fail yet. I wish it had a keyring or a hole in one end. We have a tendency to lose ours at the most inconvenient times. If we were able to hang it up on nail or a hook (maybe a suction hook in the playroom cabinet?) a few tears would have been avoided. Every super-sized set or multi-set Collection should come with one of these. Lego should be more careful to make sure the instructions on how to use this tool accompanies it.
