- Ralph: Ya know, I can remember every toy I had as a kid. Gabriel: And they remember you, Ralph. Toys are very loyal, and that is a fact.

David Bower: Fuck you, clowny!
- For the scenes in the attic, Carolyn Purdy-Gordon portrayed the character of Isabel. Bunty Bailey had already been let go by the time the attic sequences were shot.
This film was actually shot before Stuart Gordon's next film, From Beyond (1986), and was shot on the same sets, but released almost a year afterwards due to all the doll effects in post-production.
Guy Rolfe had to bleach his hair white for this film. He wasn't particularly happy when his hair originally came out yellow.
The close-up shot of Enid grabbing her "Boy Toy" belt was actually Carolyn Purdy-Gordon's niece filling in for Cassie Stuart, who was not available at the time for the shoot.
The whispering sounds of the dolls were done by a group of Stuart Gordon's friends and family, including his kids and his wife, Carolyn Purdy-Gordon.
