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



The items from the "REWARDS" header from the Kickstarter page: BSODA, Energy Flavored Zesty Bar, Safety Scissors, Quarter, Alarm Clock, and Swinging Door Lock. (Left to right)

They 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. They can be stored in the inventory HUD with three slots in Baldi's Basics Classic and five in the Baldi's Basics Plus. These items have certain properties that will help the Player progress through the school and collect all of the notebooks for the Player's friend in the classic edition and completing each floor in the full game. A single item in the inventory will be taken upon approaching It's a Bully for a pass.


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