Batuu 101 – Toydarian Toymaker

Black Spire Outposts Market is full of interesting shops but by far the most interesting shop concept is the Toydarian Toymaker. This whimsical workshop is filled with handcrafted toys made by local Black Spire Outpost artisans. 

Location

The Toydarian Toymaker is located in the Black Spire Market across from the Creature Stall. If you are coming from the entrance of Batuu the Market is just past the X-wing to the left. If you are coming from the Black Spire Outpost area the Toydarian Toymaker is up the stair past the Millennium Falcon. To the right is Docking Bay 7 and to the left is Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities. Just past Dok-Ondar’s to the right is Ronto Roasters, which is the entrance to the Market.

The Atmosphere

The Toydarian Toymaker is filled with toys that kids throughout the galaxy would play with. Everything appears to be handmade. Zabaka the shopkeep can be seen in silhouette inside the shop making toys. The shop is really fun and has the look of an old-time toy workshop. We spent quite a bit of time in this shop taking in all of the small details. All of the plush style toys including dolls of famous Star Wars characters such as Yoda, Rey, and Darth Vader look hand-sewn and stitched together as if a real-life Batuuan made them. Some of the toys are also made out of wood. There are figures of Stormtroopers, Boba Fett, Admiral Ackbar, and C-3PO and R2-D2. You can also purchase a wood TIE fighter or an X-Wing.

The Story

Zabaka is a female Toydarian who runs the Toydarian Toymaker located inside the Black Spire Outpost Market. Zabaka’s toys appear to be handmade. All the children of the galaxy would love to have any number of toys that she offers in her shop. Zabaka usually gets along with everyone but it is rumored that she is in a small feud with Bina, the owner of the nearby Creature Stall. Bina’s creatures are known to escape from their cages at night and sneak over to the Toydarian Toymaker to steal Zabaka’s toys. Inside the Creature Stall in the middle display of the Loth-Cat, you will find the Loth-Cat snuggling with a porg plush from the Toydarian Toymaker. The sneaky Loth-Cat must have snuck over to the toyshop and stole the adorable porg plush. No wonder Zabaka is so upset.
