Don't worry, I'm coming!
— Principal of the Thing

The Principal Whistle is an inventory item in Baldi's Basics Plus.


The Principal Whistle is a 3D model of a red whistle with a cropped-out background.


When used, it makes a loud whistle sound twice. This will lure Principal of the Thing to where the player is when the whistle was blown.

This can be used to lure Principal of the Thing to It's a Bully to unblock a hallway. The item can also be used to get the player themselves in detention. This can be beneficial if Baldi is about to catch the player, especially in a dead end, if they want to access the tape player, or if they want to attend the party event.

If Principal of the Thing reaches the chunk where this item is used, his speed will go back to normal, however if something interrupts him on his path to the player, such as It's a Bully, then the Principal will revert to normal speed prematurely. It also happens when he sees the player breaking a rule before using this item. He also reverts to his normal speed when the Principal tries to send It's a Bully to detention.
