For the item, see Baldi's Least Favorite Tape.

The tape player is a noise-producing structure from the Baldi's Basics series.


It is simply a 2D photo sprite of a black-tinted cassette player, in the same graphics as everything else.


The tape player when used.

It can be used in conjunction with Baldi's Least Favorite Tape to temporarily cause Baldi to stop hearing any sound. The tape player lasts for 30 seconds before stopping playback, so the player must move quickly to use it to full effect.


Main gameplay

The tape player is always seen in the Principal's office, where it is found on one of the big desks.


  • The tape player is absent in the Speedy Challenge only, but it still cannot be functioned as there is no Baldi's Least Favorite Tape in any challenge.

Other appearances


  • The tape player's sprite is edited from a GE 3-5027A cassette shoebox player.
Baldi's Basics Plus
Baldi's Basics Classic
  • In V1.0, the tape player played recorded messages instead of the static noise. The tape player would give the player some advice on what each of the characters do.


  • In the first version of Full Game Early Demo, the tape player still remained open, even if Baldi's Least Favorite Tape was used. This was fixed in V1.1.
  • Desk passes through window.png
    Since Baldi's Basics Plus V0.3.5, a table with the tape player passes through a window.
