A common device in tales of horror is to make the mundane and ordinary creepy. The more innocent the thing or character, the more shocking its transmutation to evil. Many horror movies or films features evil children (Damien in [ http: //en. wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Omen The Omen]), dolls (Chucky in [ http://en. wikipedia.org/wiki/Child%27s_Play Child's Play] ), puppets ([http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puppet_Master_%28film%29 Puppet Master] ) and other toys. [[Clowns]] and Santa Claus (in [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silent_Night%2C_Deadly_Night Silent Night, Deadly Night]) also feature as childhood icons turned evil.
Jensen and Jared both report finding the dolls in [[ 2. 11 Playthings]] scary.
'''Jared:''' Dolls. That was spooky. Just walking into a room full of dolls.<br>
'''Jensen:''' Walking in with a bunch of dead eyes looking at you.<br>
'''Jared:''' Every now and again, one of them was missing one eye, or there was one that didn't have either eye.<br>
'''Jensen:''' Just two empty sockets.<br>
'''Jared:''' And Jensen was like, "Put your fingers in her eyes." And I was like, "I don't want to. What if something gets me?" For whatever reason, we couldn't force ourselves to.<br>
'''Jensen:''' Because you're a pansy.
