The Creative inventory is filled with a wide variety of items.

Anitem is an object that exists only within the player'sinventory and hands, or displayed in item framesorArmor Stands.


Some items, when used, place a blockorentity version of themselves into the game world. Put simply, they are an item when in the inventory, and a block when placed. For example, boats turn into an entity when placed, and beds turn into a group of blocks when placed. When selected in the hotbar, items briefly display their names above the HUD.

The only method by which an item can be properly displayed within the game environment is to place it into an item frame.

If an item that does not become a block is dropped, it becomes an entity represented by a sprite that floats above the ground for 5 minutes in a loaded chunk before despawning, unless the player walks over it to pick it up before it despawns.
