Toilet filled to brim; how to unclog

If a toilet is filled to the brim (a brand new Toto), how does one unclog it (it is clogged) without splashing water with the added volume of the plunger?

Dip the excess water out into a bucket and pour it into another toilet.
A toilet has its own built-in trap and almost anything can clog it...from too much toilet paper, to plastic toys, toothbrushes, curlers, feminine products, etc.
Plunge the heck out of it with a bell-shaped toilet plunger.
If that doesn't unclog it, get a crank-handle toilet auger, feed the auger into the trap through the bowl, and crank away.
If that doesn't unclog it, you'll have to pull the toilet and unclog it from underneath with the auger.
You can do a search in here, too. There are plenty of how-to discussions about unclogging toilets.
Good Luck!
