Don't Starve Wiki


Is junk, I think.

Wolfgang, examining a Gnome

Trinkets are a group of Items that can be found around the Constant through various means such as digging up Graves using a Shovel, picking Tumbleweeds, befriending Catcoons, trading fish with the King of the Merms, fishing in the Oasis, or salvaging Ocean Debris.

Generally, the only use for Trinkets in Don't Starve is to be traded to the Pig King or Yaarctopus in exchange for Gold Nuggets, and for decoration. In Don't Starve Together, trinkets can also be traded with the Antlion in the Summer to obtain Desert Stones.

Some trinkets have special uses in DLCs:

  • (DST) Knight, Rook, and Bishop trinkets can be traded to the Pig King in exchange for their respective figure sketches.
  • (DST) Beach Toy can be traded to the Antlion in exchange for a Blueprint for The Lazy Deserter.
  • (DST) Hardened Rubber Bung and Bent Spork can be used in Sea Fishing Rods as floats or lures respectively.
  • (Ham) The Can of Silly String is used to craft the Skyworthy.

Trinkets are not to be confused with the similar-looking Lost Toys.
