A friend of mine used something like the tooth fairy and she called it the pacifier fairy.  Where you tell the kids that soon the pacifier fairy is going to come (best tiem would be a Fri night cuz then you have the weekend with the worst of the transition) and that they need to put their pacifiers in a special container and then the fairy will leave a special surprise for them.  The surprise could be a new toy, or another comfort object they can use in place like a stuffed animal, or special blanket.  If you let them be the ones who put their pacifier in the container then they made the choice and it will be a much easier transition. 

I don't know if you like this idea or think it will work, but thats all I have :)  Good luck and I hope you find something that will work for you and your little ones :)

mine were also 2 1/2 when we got rid of the nummy (pacifire) my girlfriend had just had a baby and so for a few days we did a lot of talking about it to prepair them and at the end of the week, they walked around and picked up all their nummys, put them in a bag and themselfs handed them over to the new baby "because the baby needs nummys not big kids". right after we took them to the toy store and let the pick out whatever toy they wanted (small gidence from mom and dad) and that made them happy and feel a bit grown up. my son had no problem with it but my daughter took about a week to really get use to it, she would just ask for it and we had to remind them that the baby needed their nummys and that they were big kids now. when she got really upset one day we told her she could have her nummy back but she had to give up her new toy and that wasnt happening! so it worked really well for us. u said that your neighbor has a newborn so that might work perfect for you! and just to make sure, the nummys got thrown out not reused! lol  also with the potty training, use mini m&m's (or whatever small candy they like) worked like a charm! when they went #1 they got 1 m&m and so on.

hope this helps and good luck. here are a few pictures from that day, maybe they will help!

We took binky's away cold turkey at 18 months. When they'd cry or ask for them I'd say " Binky's are for babies, and your big girls ". It took a few nights, but eventually they stopped asking.

On "Super Nanny" she had the child collect all the binky's and put them in an envenlope - and then they took it to the post office and "Mailed"  the binky's to babies that needed them.
