Toy Freddy, Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery

Toy Freddy is a "toy" animatronic of the Five Nights at Freddy's series, first appearing in Five Nights at Freddy's 2. He is Freddy Fazbear's "redesigned" counterpart from the past and an improved replacement of Freddy's pre-rebuilt incarnation Withered Freddy, serving as the mascot of the newly refurbished Freddy Fazbear's Pizza of 1987.

Physical Appearance

Glossy plastic version of Freddy; has two buttons on his belly.
The Freddy Files, page 38

Toy Freddy has a similar appearance to his original counterpart. He is a brown animatronic bear with light brown coloring on his stomach, snout, and inner ears. He has black whisker spots, black eyebrows, brown eyelids, short eyelashes, blue eyes, and a black nose. As with the other toy animatronics, Toy Freddy has rosy red, blushed cheeks. However, unlike the other toy animatronics, he appears to have a matte coating rather than a glossy finish. His arms and legs are multi-jointed, like the other toy animatronics, but most appear darker.

Toy Freddy's face is much flatter, wider, and significantly more round than the original Freddy Fazbear's, with noticeably more buck teeth. He also seems to be the widest of the toy animatronics, as his body is much bigger compared to that of the original Freddy's. His ears are also much smaller and more oval in shape. He wears a black bow tie with two black buttons beneath it. He also wears a small black top hat with a red stripe. In his right hand, he holds a silver and black microphone.

Toy Freddy's eyes normally appear to be similar to those of the other animatronics, but upon entering the Office, his eyes turn to a glossy-black that cause his eyes to look empty.

In Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted, he seems to be a darker brown.


Scott Cawthon describes him as "private and reclusive". Toy Freddy's personality, as suggested in his quotes from Ultimate Custom Night, he appears pouty, wisecracking, and childish as he will get upset by his own failure to beat video games, especially the "Five Nights with Mr. Hugs" game.

In Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery, Toy Freddy speaks in a more affable manner, seemingly treating the player as a friend.


Five Nights at Freddy's 2

Unlike his original counterpart, Toy Freddy is active on the first two nights. He starts on the Show Stage, then wanders into the Game Area. He then continues into the hallway outside the Office and heads towards the night guard from there. His position while in the hallway can be revealed via the Flashlight.

While Toy Freddy leans in before entering the Office, putting on the Freddy Fazbear Head will prevent him from entering. When he is in the Office and the player lowers the Monitor, Toy Freddy will stand in front of the desk with blackened eyes lacking pupils as the lights flicker before he vanishes, in an identical manner to Withered Freddy, Withered Bonnie, and Withered Chica.

The player must immediately put on the Freddy Head the moment they see Toy Freddy to avoid imminent death. Delaying or neglecting to equip the head will cause Toy Freddy to seemingly disappear, only to return to attack when they next take off the head and/or put up and lower the Monitor, resulting in a Game Over. He may also forcibly pull down the Monitor or remove the Freddy Head if it is left on some time after failing to ward him off. If the player does equip the head in time, he will return to the Show Stage and repeat his cycle.

Just like the other toy animatronics, Toy Freddy is very inactive on later nights, though he starts to become more active again beginning on Night 5.

From the Custom Night, night modes where Toy Freddy is active are listed as follows:

  • New & Shiny
  • Freddy's Circus
  • Cupcake Challenge
  • Fazbear Fever
  • Golden Freddy

Five Nights at Freddy's 3

Toy Freddy only appears as an empty head in Five Nights at Freddy's 3 from inside the Office, along with the other "new" animatronics. His appearance does not affect gameplay and is only there for aesthetic purposes.

All that can be made out of Toy Freddy's remains are his head and top hat. No other parts can be seen in the box.

Five Nights at Freddy's 4

Like most of the other original animatronics, Toy Freddy doesn't have any appearance in Five Nights at Freddy's 4. His only appearance in the game is a cameo as a toy figurine at the end of night minigames.

Toy Freddy makes one minor appearance in Night 3's minigame, where a little girl from the playground can be seen having minifigures of Toy Freddy, Toy Bonnie, and Toy Chica. They appear to retain the same overall design as his animatronic counterpart, and this is his only appearance in the entire game. Furthermore, Toy Freddy's minifigure doesn't seem to carry a microphone, although this could be due to minigame restrictions.

Ultimate Custom Night

He sits in the Parts and Service room playing Five Nights with Mr. Hugs on his big screen TV. Click the cams on Toy Freddy's monitor, then be sure that the appropriate door is closed to prevent Mr. Hugs from jumpscaring him.
Menu description,

Toy Freddy's Jumpscare (1)

Toy Freddy attacking the player.

Toy Freddy returns in the standalone mashup Ultimate Custom Night as one of the many selectable characters.

Toy Freddy is described as being retired and sits in Parts/Service (CAM 08) playing a parody of Five Nights at Freddy's titled "Five Nights With Mr. Hugs" on a large flat-screen television set.

The game is shown to have three main hallways, and the character is Mr. Hugs, who may appear on each hallway camera at any given time. Each hallway also has a door that can block Mr. Hugs from jumpscaring Toy Freddy. The goal of the player is to discern which hallway Mr. Hugs is at and close the appropriate door.

If the player fails to close the correct door in time, the television screen will change to one displaying the words "Game Over". This means that Toy Freddy has been jumpscared and is on his way to end the player's night. At this point, there is no way to stop Toy Freddy, and the outcome of the night will be decided on whether the night ends before or after Toy Freddy decides to jumpscare the player. Alternatively, Toy Freddy can be removed from the night if the player uses the death coin on him.

The challenges in which Toy Freddy is present are as follows:

  • Bears Attack 2
  • Bears Attack 3
  • Old Friends
  • Chaos 1

Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted


Toy Freddy attacking the player (click to animate).

Toy Freddy returns in Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted. He is an antagonist during the FNAF 2 levels, which has gameplay very similar to Five Nights at Freddy's 2. Along with the other toy animatronics, he can also be seen on camera walking from camera to camera on his way towards the player's office, where he can be warded off by the Freddy Fazbear Head. Uniquely, if the player does not have the light shining on him when he is standing in the hallway, he will jumpscare the player upon entering the Office without providing an opportunity to equip the Freddy Fazbear Head.

Five Nights At Freddys AR: Special Delivery

Toy Freddy was added to Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery on Feb 6, 2020. Like the other toy animatronics (except for BB), the player must wear the Freddy Fazbear Mask and look at Toy Freddy when he haywires. Toy Freddy can also cause the player's battery to drop rapidly. To stop this, the player must wear the Freddy Fazbear Mask.

Five Nights at Freddy's 2

The sound Toy Freddy makes when killing the night guard. This same sound is played when any animatronic attacks them, Golden Freddy and BB being exceptions.

Warning: Loud!

The sound heard when Toy Freddy is inside The Office. It begins at any random point throughout the audio, and only plays for a few seconds before abruptly ending. This sound is also used by Freddy, Bonnie, Chica, and Toy Bonnie whenever they enter The Office.

Ultimate Custom Night

It's not my fault. I have these fat, plastic fingers and can't press the buttons!


Mr. Hugs got me again.


If I get jumpscared, you get jumpscared!


That game was totally rigged.


That's what you get for leaving me hanging.


Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery

Am I invited to this party?


Are you sure you want that as your hiding place?


Did I overhear that someone needs a friend?


Did someone order a new friend?


Hello? Hello!? W-w-why won't you say something?


I've got a special present just for you.

ToyFred-I veGotASpecial

Is there someone here who needs some extra-special cheering up?


Just ignore me and pretend I'm not even here.


Maybe we should try a new game now...


Oh, are we playing hide-and-seek now?


That's what you get for leaving me hanging.

ToyFred-That sWhatYouGet

This has been really fun, let's do it again sometime, Hmm...?


This is fun! Catch me if you can!


Time for one of my patented jingles.


Would you like to hear one of my copyrighted jingles?


Would you like to play some more?


You aren't as good at hiding as you think you are, you know.

ToyFred-YouAren tGood

You can trust me--I'm friends with everyone!


You seem nervous...would you like me to be your friend?

The sound Toy Freddy makes when attacking the player.

Warning: Loud!



  • Scott explained a few years ago from his Steam post why Toy Freddy has little notoriety in the series.[1]

Five Nights at Freddy's 2

  • Toy Freddy takes much longer to leave the Office in the iOS version of the game on some older models of iOS platforms, as do Withered Freddy, Withered Bonnie, and Withered Chica.
  • Toy Freddy, Withered Freddy, Withered Foxy, and BB are the only animatronics to return to their starting locations during the night.
  • Clicking Toy Freddy's nose on the poster in The Office that reads "CELEBRATE!" in the PC version of the game will emit the same squeak as Freddy's did in the same circumstance from the first game. This does not work in the mobile version.
  • Like his original counterpart, Toy Freddy holds his microphone while hunting the night guard.
    • That makes Toy Freddy one of the new animatronics to always carry their equipment while being active. The other being Toy Chica.
  • Unlike his original counterpart, Toy Freddy is active during Night 1 and Night 2.
  • Toy Freddy is the only toy animatronic to behave like the withered animatronics when attacking, waiting in the Office until the player removes the head or brings up the Monitor, and then attacking.
    • His jumpscare is also similar to that of Withered Freddy and Withered Chica, him popping up near the night guard's face, rather than lunging at them like Foxy and other new animatronics.
    • He is also the only new animatronic (with the exception of the Puppet) to never enter the vents.
  • It appears that the closer Toy Freddy gets to the night guard, the more his jaw hangs open, to the point where the teeth on his bottom jaw are not visible during his jumpscare. This behavior is similar to that of the original Chica's from the first game.
  • Toy Freddy is one of eight animatronics to change their appearance as they traverse the pizzeria. The others being Toy Chica, Golden Freddy, the Puppet, Mangle, BB, Toy Bonnie, and Withered Bonnie.
  • Unusually, Toy Freddy seems far more active in the mobile version of the game. It is unknown why this occurs.
  • Toy Freddy shares a design similar to the 1980's iteration of Chuck E. Cheese from Chuck E. Cheese's which featured a noticeably wider head and a softened and compressed facial structure while sporting a striped hat and vest-like design.
  • Toy Freddy is one of the few new animatronics that does not have an unlockable plushie on the Custom Night, along with Toy Chica, the Puppet, and Mangle.
  • Just like the other newer animatronics, Toy Freddy was scrapped at the end of Night 6 due to possible malfunctioning.
  • Toy Freddy and Balloon Boy are the only two animatronics who only appear in one camera feed in the trail from their starting position to the Office, being the Game Area and Left Air Vent, respectively.
  • Toy Freddy is one of the five animatronics that do not appear in the air vents; four others are Withered Freddy, Golden Freddy, Withered Foxy, and the Puppet.
    • He is also only one of four animatronics that do not traverse through any of the party rooms in order to reach the night guard, the others being Golden Freddy, Withered Foxy, and the Puppet.
      • Technically, BB also is never seen traversing through any of the party rooms, but since he enters the Office via the Left Air Vent, he must enter Party Room 1 in order to do so.
  • Toy Freddy does not appear in the Game Area in the mobile version. It is unknown why this occurs.
  • Upon entering the Office, Toy Freddy is the only animatronic who stands near the right side of the room, unlike the original animatronics, who stand directly in the center or left of the room.
  • Toy Freddy will become active if you use the Monitor for too long or too often.

Five Nights at Freddy's 3

  • Toy Freddy is one of only two animatronics from the previous games to not have an appearance in any minigame from the third game. The other being Toy Bonnie.
    • However, since the player can see a drawing of Toy Bonnie in CAM 04, this means Toy Freddy has the least amount of appearances in the third game, with his head in the Office being the only time he is seen.

Five Nights at Freddy's 4

  • Since the fourth game takes place in Fredbear's Family Diner, which was open long before the events of the second game, it is unknown why the minifigure of Toy Freddy even exists.
    • It is possible that the toy animatronics originated as toys, and then was made as a basis for the animatronics in Five Nights at Freddy's 2.
      • However, this is unlikely due to the Mangle figure possessing an endoskeleton, while an everyday toy would not. However, if the game truly does take place around the time of Five Nights at Freddy's 2, it's possible that the toy was based on Mangle at the time in which it was withered.
  • From the discussion board on Steam, before the Halloween update, fans wanted to see a nightmarish counterpart of Toy Freddy, along with the other toys, but Scott himself replied that he wouldn't be in the said update.[2]

Ultimate Custom Night

  • From the Character Guide announcement on the game's Steam page, Scott describes the mechanics for Toy Freddy:

Relax, Toy Freddy is retired. He sits in the Parts and Service room playing video games on his big-screen TV. What game is he playing? Five Nights With Mr. Hugs, of course. The problem is that Toy Freddy has never been very good at video games, and if he loses his game, he will probably blame the player for it. Check the Parts and Service cam to see how he's doing. In Five Nights With Mr. Hugs, there are three ways into the office and only one door can be closed at a time. Click the cams on Toy Freddy's monitor, then be sure that the appropriate door is closed to prevent Mr. Hugs from getting into his office. If the player checks on Toy Freddy and sees GAME OVER on his screen, that means that Mr. Hugs has already jumpscared him, and now Toy Freddy is on his way to jumpscare the player. Once Toy Freddy has been jumpscared, there will be no way to calm him down, and the player has no way of saving themselves.[3]

  • The fact about Toy Freddy being retired mentioned from the mechanic description by Scott's own words seems to be a reference back from the year 2015 where Scott commented about the reason behind Toy Freddy having little notoriety in the game franchise:
"You people don't UNDERSTAND Toy Freddy. He's a very reclusive and private animatronic. He spends his evenings curled up reading a good book. He doesn't like the limelight. So please be respectful of Toy Freddy. He's retired."
  • Toy Freddy playing his game is one of the few times where a character's backside is revealed.

Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted

  • Unlike Five Nights at Freddy's 2, Toy Freddy now keeps the black eyes during his jumpscare, instead of switching back to his normal eyes.

Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery

  • Before he was added to the game, Toy Freddy was mentioned in some E-mails in the inbox, and the icon for his CPU could be found in the workshop.


  1. You people don't UNDERSTAND Toy Freddy. He's a very reclusive and private animatronic. He spends his evenings curled up reading a good book. He doesn't like the limelight. So please be respectful of Toy Freddy. He's retired. - Scott Cawthon, Steam - October 28, 2015 @ 6:58 AM
  2. Unfortunately Toy Freddy will not be in the update, still a cool picture. - Scott Cawthon, Steam - October 26, 2015 @ 9:32 PM
