In Toybubble Loher directs Saori Tsukada as a red and a blue character inside two bubbles. After following their daily routine as Japanese toy-characters, they discover each other behind the glass and try to escape their enclosed environment - the bubble.

For a molecule of time they appear in each other‘s bubbles, which demonstrates a desire of an impossible dream, then they immediately return to their daily routines, to perform the tasks for which they were programmed.
