This is why I hate pedestal sinks. Frequently, just to clean a hair clog from the pop up you have to remove the sink from the wall. If you do remove it, have a helper. I learned the hard way several years ago. As I lifted the sink off the wall hangers, the tail piece caught the pedestal and toppled it. I think it cost me $150.

Some pedestals are purely decorative and just slide under the bowl that is securely mounted to the wall. Check underneath to see the configuration of your daughters. It may have a bolt that holds it to the floor, remove the bolt and it also may have a caulk line that need to be loosened where the bowl meets the base. But with luck you will see a nice metal bracket underneath that is holding the sink to the wall.
