- Teethy One (Stella Salumaa, 2014) used for a music video.

“Some puppets in the show will be nice and smiley, some bizarre, even scary or freaky, as some say – so just leave your puppet fears from childhood behind and get ready for another journey into the world of imagination”.
The show is part of the Leytonstone Arts Trail.
