The inventory (or item slots*) is an item storage system in the Baldi's Basics series, shown on the top-right corner of the screen.


Baldi's Basics Plus/Baldi's Basics Classic Remastered


The inventory can hold 5 items at a time. The Player can pick up items with the "Interact" key and use them with the "Use Item" key.

The Player can scroll the mouse wheel or pressing the number key (1 to 5 keys by default) to select different items.

To swap an item the Player has to left click an item with another item selected. The Player will pick up the new item and the old one will be left on. If the Player approaches It's a Bully while having items, he will take a random item from their inventory.

The item the Player have selected will have a red background in its square. If the Player has an inventory slot selected with nothing in it, then the item slot will just say "Nothing".

The inventory has a different design and can only hold 3 items at a time. Once the inventory is full, picking up an item will result in the previous item getting permanently removed.

  1. "I'm considering giving quarters in like a separate item slot in the full game so you stack quarters instead of having them to take off from your item slot. I'm-I'm thinking about getting you like five slots in the full game and then get this new separate quarter slot." - Livestream archive 1:12:13~1:12:29
  2. "You did great! Come here and get your prize! A shiny quarter! Just click on it with the left mouse button to pick it up! Then, when you find something you can use it on, right click on the object with the quarter selected! That's how you use items, you know." - BAL GetPrize.wav file from Baldi's Basics Classic's asset files
