In the Five Nights at Freddy’s horror games, most animatronics look sinister and can easily send shivers down your spine–it’s a horror franchise, after all. However, you’ll find animatronics that look relatively safe and inviting on the other end of the spectrum.
Toy Bonnie is among them, and I love how he’s also a guitarist, like the original Bonnie. So, let’s take a look at this animatronic in this FNAF Toy Bonnie Guide.
Bottom Line Up Front
Physical Appearance and Personality
Toy Bonnie looks the part. He’s bright blue, while his stomach, muzzle, and the insides of his ears are a pale blue. His cheeks are bright red and include three freckles on either side.
He has green eyes, buck teeth, long lashes, and whisker spots, making him more similar to a rabbit than the original Bonnie. Toy Bonnie also wears a red bowtie and carries a guitar on and off-stage.
I’ll be the first to admit that seeing Toy Bonnie for the first time disarmed me. I knew he was designed to appeal to younger audiences, but I still wasn’t ready for such a significant difference between him and the original Bonnie. However, I was pleasantly surprised.
That said, Toy Bonnie’s personality is what I expected. He considers himself a superstar and is boastful–he will gloat if he catches you, which is a tad annoying, though not in the same league as Balloon Boy.
Toy Bonnie Lore
The original Fredbear’s Family Diner closed its doors after the Bite of 83, where the Fredbear animatronic bit into the skull of the Crying Child. Four years later, in 1987, the owners opened a new restaurant: Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza.
However, because people considered the original Withered Animatronics too frightening for kids, Fazbear Entertainment made shinier, plastic-looking versions for the new restaurant. Toy Bonnie was among these animatronics, called the Toy Animatronics.
The Toy Animatronics roamed the pizzeria at night and acted aggressively towards the staff, even during the day. Eventually, the restaurant was locked down, with no one allowed to enter or leave.
The managers tried to contact Fredbear’s Family Diner’s original owner, Henry Emily–however, he had been missing for years, and finding him proved impossible.
The restaurant eventually closed because of malfunctioning animatronics–and the infamous Bite of 87, where an animatronic bit off someone’s frontal lobe. Fazbear Entertainment subsequently scrapped the Toy Animatronics.
Five Nights at Freddy’s 2
This is the game where Toy Bonnie makes his chief appearance. You play as night security guard Jeremy Fitzgerald. You can’t leave the Security Office, so you must survive until dawn each night while stuck in one location. Meanwhile, the Toy Animatronics roam the building and attack you if you’re not careful.
Your tools are the Monitor–which lets you view the animatronics’ movement–a Freddy Fazbear head, and Light switches illuminating the exposed Hallway and the air vents at either side of the Office.
I’ll be honest, FNAF 2 is considerably more challenging than FNAF 1–and even if the animatronics look less intimidating, you’ll still experience enough jump scares to freak you out.
That said, Toy Bonnie isn’t the most challenging animatronic in this game. To defeat Toy Bonnie, wear the Freddy mask as soon as you see him. He will mistake you for Freddy and will leave you alone.
Unfortunately, the same antic won’t work on an animatronic like Withered Foxy–you’ll have to fend him off with the Flashlight, but the more you use it, the faster the battery runs out.
If you beat Toy Bonnie and the other animatronics on the first five nights, you will unlock a sixth night, whose difficulty is ramped up. Beat this night, and you will unlock Night Seven–a custom night where you can choose the animatronics you face and adjust each one’s difficulty.
Five Nights at Freddy’s 3
Toy Bonnie appears in FNAF 3, but it’s barely a cameo. If you look around the Office, you’ll see his parts–disappointingly, they don’t meld together when you look away and turn into a horrific form of Toy Bonnie.
The pieces remind you that he was dismantled with the other Toy Animatronics after the incidents of FNAF 2–especially the mysterious Bite of 87.
However, you can also see Toy Bonnie in the Hallway. Just look through CAM 04, and look left: you’ll see a drawing of the animatronic.
Unfortunately, these are the only two instances of Toy Bonnie in FNAF 3.
Ultimate Custom Night
Hurray, Toy Bonnie is back as an antagonist you can face in Ultimate Custom Night! If you choose to face this animatronic, he will appear through the trapdoor to your right. You can’t keep him from entering, and a jumpscare awaits if you don’t act fast when he enters the Office. So, your best bet is to wear the Freddy Fazbear mask and look directly at him like FNAF 2.
Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted
Even better, you can face all the Toy Animatronics in FNAF 2 from Night 1. Additionally, if you have a Virtual Reality headset, get ready to experience true terror–I nearly jumped out of my skin several times when playing this game in VR.
The only thing you’ll miss in this game mode is the original secrets and rare screens from FNAF 2. However, I don’t consider them a significant loss if you’re playing for the scares more than the horror video game’s complex lore.
Five Nights at Freddy’s AR: Special Delivery
Toy Bonnie also appears in Special Delivery–a good thing, considering how many animatronics are in this game. You play as a Fazbear Funtime Service user and unlock animatronics you can use to forage for parts or send after your real-life friends.
Toy Bonnie appeared in Special Delivery between January 24th and 29th, 2020. However, he became a permanent addition in July of the same year.
When Toy Bonnie appears, he can charge you. If he does this, quickly shock him to prevent a jumpscare. However, the animatronic can also appear directly in front of you–something I found unsettling when playing the game alone at night.
When he shows up like this, quickly wear the Freddy Fazbear mask to fend him off. However, this isn’t foolproof: Toy Bonnie’s eyes might turn red. Don’t take off the mask when this happens, but look away from the animatronic.
Bonnie is an animatronic rabbit who entertained kids at the original Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza as the guitarist in Freddy’s band. While he was an entertainer by day, he roamed the building at night and attacked the night security guard.
However, Bonnie was haunted by one of the children William Afton killed–a boy called Jeremy. He was among the child victims in the Missing Children Incident, where William murdered children who came to the restaurants and stuffed their bodies into animatronics. However, the children didn’t stay dead and possessed their respective animatronics.
Withered Bonnie is among the most disturbing counterparts to Toy Bonnie. While the latter is shiny, happy, and family-friendly, Withered Bonnie is the stuff of nightmares. His body is full of holes that reveal the endoskeleton underneath.
His whole face and left arm are missing–only wires are left sticking out of the arm socket. His eyesockets glow red, and he has two rows of lower teeth.
Unsurprisingly, Withered Bonnie was quickly decommissioned for being too frightening–not what Fazbear Entertainment wanted when trying to appeal to the whole family.
As his name implies, Nightmare Bonnie is another Toy Bonnie counterpart who’s not kid-friendly. His body is also filled with holes that expose his endoskeleton, but his fingers are clawed, and his mouth is full of razor-sharp teeth.
If I had to pick which is the scarier animatronic between this one and Withered Bonnie, I’d choose the latter: having a missing face and glowing red eyes is just creepier.
Rockstar Bonnie isn’t as polished and as child-friendly as Toy Bonnie. However, he’s not as gruff as the original Bonnie—Rockstar Bonnie lies somewhere in between, with two gold stars on his chest.
While he’s not an enemy in FNAF: Pizzeria Simulator, you can face him in Ultimate Custom Night. In that game, he will randomly appear in the Office. You must quickly find his guitar through the cameras to get rid of him, or he will give you a jumpscare.
If Toy Bonnie were miniature-sized, he would look like Bon-Bon. This is a tiny animatronic hand puppet attached to Funtime Freddy. He makes the bigger animatronic less aggressive, though he can also attack and kill you.
Toy Bonnie has three skins, all in FNAF: Special Delivery.
System Error Toy Bonnie
This skin recolors Toy Bonnie, giving him red skin, yellow eyes, a white nose, and matching freckles. His stomach has the “SYSTEM ERROR” text, and he looks arcadey.
While System Error Toy Bonnie looks impressive, he’s just a reskin: he still moves and attacks the same way.
Boulder Toy Bonnie
Part of the Haunted Forest Event, Boulder Toy Bonnie is made from stone. His limbs and stomach have several cracks, he is grey, and some parts are covered in moss. He also has an entire row of upper teeth instead of buck teeth, and his eye sockets are empty. Unlike the vanilla Toy Bonnie, this skin makes the character creepy.
Sunken Toy Bonnie
Sunken Toy Bonnie was included in the Wicked Tides Event. Based on the ocean, he is covered in barnacles, his stomach is full of different hues, and his cheeks are covered in clams. Two scallops make up his bowtie, and his eyes are multi-colored.
Question: Who Is Toy Bonnie?
Answer: Toy Bonnie is a Toy Animatronic who first appears in FNAF 2. He is a shinier, more child-friendly version of Bonnie.
Question: Is Toy Bonnie A Boy Or A Girl?
Answer: While some fans consider Toy Bonnie a girl because of the flushed cheeks and long eyelashes, the animatronic is male.
Question: Will Toy Bonnie Be In The FNAF Movie?
Answer: While I can’t say for sure, I doubt Toy Bonnie will appear in the FNAF movie. The movie is based on FNAF 1, and when we see Freddy Fazbear, he’s in his original form–not Withered, which would hint at the appearance of Toy Animatronics. However, if the FNAF movie is successful and gets a sequel, I expect Toy Bonnie to make his feature film debut then.
FNAF Toy Bonnie Guide: Conclusion
Toy Bonnie is a fascinating animatronic who appears in more games than I would have expected. His family-friendly looks are disarming, considering how scary he can be when giving you a jumpscare.
I recommend playing all the games that feature him–but if I had to pick only one, it would be FNAF: Special Delivery. The AR aspect of the game makes Toy Bonnie increasingly frightening, and I love his skins.
