Air inactivates the virus and residual semen left in the sex toy would not expose you to HIV at all.  Consider this an immediate no risk. Transmission takes place INSIDE a host and plastic vaginas don't count.  The only way adults get HIV is from unprotected vaginal or anal sex with penetration (and the vagina of a human being, not plastic) and sharing IV drug needles.
