Remove and reset the toilet----I will bet the wax ring shifted and is blocking the hole---

When the toilet is out----dump a bucket of water into it--see if it flushes--I'm not familiar with that brand---is that a high quality toilet?

and when you take off the toilet, be sure to look inside for lost toys. A ridgid sea snake will sometimes let you see inside before taking the bowl up.

And when you dump the bucket of water while the toilet is out, put a good amount of toilet paper in the bowl to see if the paper hangs up on something in the bowl's trap and clogs the toilet.
