Cool

A toilet has its own built-in trap and almost anything can get hung up in it (plastic toys, toothbrushes, curlers, etc.).
If a bell-shaped toilet plunger doesn't work, get a crank-handle toilet auger, feed the auger into the trap through the bowl, and crank away.
If that doesn't dislodge the problem, you may have to pull the toilet and auger it out from underneath.
Do a search in here about clogged toilets. There are numerous posts.
It could be something other than a clogged trap.
Good luck!
Mike
