Open Door Designs has been commissioned to build a variety of custom puppets for TV and theatre.
Please feel free to contact us with any requests.


These puppets were commissioned by Breakthrough Entertainment for the Kenny v Spenny Christmas Special finale in 2010.

This group of six puppets was commissioned by a Barbadian NGO The Future Centre Trust. They required a number of characters based on illustrations in a series of books that will be used in schools for eco education.
