Items are objects the player can find and obtain from the Baldi's Basics series.


Items from the "Rewards" header from the Kickstarter page (left to right): BSODA, Energy Flavored Zesty Bar, Safety Scissors, Quarter, Alarm Clock, and Swinging Door Lock.

Items are scattered around the Schoolhouse or Super Schoolhouse, and can be picked up and used by the player. They can also be purchased from Johnny's Store with You Thought Points. Items can be stored in the inventory HUD with five slots in Baldi's Basics Plus and three in Baldi's Basics Classic, Birthday Bash, and Classic Remastered. These items have certain properties that will help the player progress in the game and collect all of the notebooks for the player's friend in Baldi's Basics Classic or complete each floor in Baldi's Basics Plus. A single item in the inventory will be taken upon approaching It's a Bully for a pass, unless wearing a Faculty Nametag or the Bully is upside-down during the Gravity Chaos event.


For more information about the items, go to their pages with the links below.

  • New items added in the Kickstarter Exclusive Demo and Baldi's Basics Plus look much smaller than the others.
  • Items.png
    Using the C-Sharp for the game in dnSpy, in the "Items" part of the code, some items not used currently are revealed: NanaPeel, FidgetSpinner, and Football. There could be a chance that some of them will be added to a future update.
    • There was SpyCamera in this code as one of the possible upcoming items, but it was removed.
  • For some reason, the Portal Poster, Baldi's Least Favorite Tape, Energy Flavored Zesty Bar, Principal's Keys, and the BSODA (only the large version) are not dithered.
Baldi's Basics Plus
  • Obtaining an item while the inventory is full will replace and leave the selected item on the spot.
    • Prior to V0.3, it would make the selected item disappear.
  • In the Grapple Challenge, if the player collects an item while the inventory is full and the Grappling Hook is selected, the item will disappear and will not be stored in the inventory, causing the game to soft-lock.
  • Prior to V0.1.4, whirlpools could steal an item from the inventory.
  • Prior to V0.3.3, all items only had selective sized sprites. For example, if the item is 32-pixel sized, then there is no 64-pixel sized sprite and vice-versa.

  • The Big Ol' Boots, Safety Scissors, and Alarm Clock items are not featured in this demo.
