** Sadly, Wybie's grandmother might have been developing dementia at that point and had forgotten that she didn't want any families with kids living in the Pink Palace.

* The phrase "Beldam" may be a reference to "La Belle Dame Sans Merci (The Beautiful Woman Without Mercy)", a poem about a knight charmed and abandoned by the titular dangerous fairy. So does that mean that the Beldam does not necessarily prey only on children?

\n* Wybie said that his grandmother, Mrs. Lovat, never rents the Pink Palace to families with children. Why now did she decide to rent it out to a family with a child? Well, Wybie's the same age as Coraline and he loves to wander around, sometimes a little to close to the Pink Palace. Wybie is just a susceptible child as Coraline was to being lured to the Other World. Is it then, out of fear over her kin, she rented out the flat to a family with a kid, to use as a ''scapegoat''?

** While it wouldn't assuage whatever guilt Grandma Lovat has, it might be as simple as Sweet Ghost Girl having lost a proverbial coin toss. If Other Mother can't or won't cater to more than one child at a time (no matter how much their interests might overlap), then she somehow arbitrarily chose Sweet Ghost Girl over her sister. It might have come down to which twin found the doll first.

\n* The bed that the Ghost Children hide in has a large puddle in the middle. They have literally pissed the bed with fear.

** To expand this further: when you think about it, Coraline's life isn't particularly miserable. She's bored and disgruntled at the beginning of the film, yes, but most of the problems causing this (moving stress; parents too busy to pay attention to her) are temporary. Now think about how someone in a terrible, inescapable situation (growing up with abusive parents, for example) would react to the offer of this seemingly perfect world, where all their life's problems were solved?

* In the beginning of the film, Wybie said that the cat would visit him a lot. Considering the cat knows about the other world, it's likely that he does so to protect Wybie from it.
