The Toy is an episode of the ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks series.


Theodore's favorite toy was lost on a rafting trip but then mysteriously shows up at the house, and it's alive.[2]


At the beginning of the episode, Theodore is sad while with two Alvin and Simon dolls. When Jeanette sees how sad he is, she immediately asks him what's wrong, prompting Theodore to retell the story of the day he lost T2. Soon after, Theodore gets a package which has T2 in it and a note saying he is a special doll. Theodore went up to his room with his brothers and the new doll and reunited T2 with the other two dolls. After leaving the room and coming back later, they came back to see that T2 had fallen over. The next morning, Theodore was surprised to see that even though he had gone to sleep with T2 next to him, he was in a completely different spot in the room. After a few more incidences of T2 moving, one night, Simon decided to put a video camera so they can see if T2 really was moving on his own. The next morning, they saw T2 had moved again. When they checked the tape, something had blocked the camera. This was the final straw for Simon and Alvin, and they decided to stay awake all night, which didn't work because they fell asleep anyway. In the middle of Theodore's dream where all of the toys were alive, a light woke everyone up. They looked around only to see Jeanette, who explained everything. She had sent T2 to be replaced after his accident and had been trying to fix the color of the shoelaces for the past couple of days. The episode concluded when the boys found three toys that didn't belong to them, but they were ones that were alive in Theodore's dream.
