In the 1998 Joe Dante film “Small Soldiers,” Alan’s house was not actually a real house, rather a set constructed on the Warner Bros. Ranch in Burbank, California. The set was built specifically for the film, but remains standing to this day and has since been used for other productions, including “Pleasantville” and the TV series “Pushing Daisies.”
This Warner Bros. Ranch is separate from the main Warner backlot and unfortunately not open to public tours at this time.

Another set from the film, The Inner Child toy store, is located over on the main studio lot of Warner Bros. and can in fact be seen on their studio tour. The building was famously later used as the coffee shop where Emma Stone works in “La La Land.”
LOCATION: 4000 Warner Blvd, Burbank, CA 91505
Some of the establishing shots of the town were filmed at Orange Circle. A popular filming spot, Orange Circle has also been featured in such films as “That Thing You Do!,” “Big Momma’s House,” “Frailty” and many more.
