Odds are the battery needs replaced. If it is a 12V battery, you could try jump starting to test the starter to verify. If it is a 6V battery you will have to find another one to jump. You could check the battery with a multimeter to check voltage if you have one or know of someone who does. Make sure you know how to do this properly so as not to destroy the meter. The meters can be cheap or expensive, depends on the model and the features, but always bad idea to let out the magic smoke.
Pull the air cleaner of to see if fuel is getting to carburetor. If it is then see if its getting fire to the plug by taking out and put the wire back on but be careful not to hold the wire or the plug if fire is week then get a new plug or get a new one and see it that helps
I don;t know what engine is on your mower but if it has the self contained electronic ignition coil I have seen happen on several engines.

"Is this a design flaw by Toro?" (sic) Well, it indeed maybe, it definitely, isn't helping the situation. Here's what to do, get some Mesh, and fasten it across the opening, this will stop most things from gaining egress, and protect what is behind, If that's not sufficient, then perhaps a Plastic,sheet (perhaps if required some holes in it). fastened, across the aperture, will work. In any case I have no doubt, you have the idea of what to do to remedy this situation.
If it doesnt start manually,you have another issue to deal with. Whether it has electric start or not you should be able to manually pull start it. You can also get the model and serial number off the engine and contact your nearest toro dealer to have charger and key ordered. As far as a push button,it can be done,just a matter of finding someone to install one for you.
