Jewelry designers Leen Faris and Carmela Pipicelli from Design Institute Amman helped both in guidance and the actual execution of the piece.

Lena Hussein created a Play Therapy puppet that can help children express how they feel internally as well as externally. This helps child therapists in identifying and treating anxiety in children in an easier way. Costume Designer Hanadi Khorma created the puppet, and Sirsa Qursha (Child Development and Parenting Specialist) sat with them at the start of the project to help guide them in the right direction
