According to commentary by writer Don Mancini on the DVD of the first film, the reason the rest of the "Child's Play" films are released by Universal instead of MGM/UA (despite the first film being highly successful for them), was that United Artists was about to be bought out by a company that wanted to abstain to a "family friendly" slate of films. The property was then gladly sold to Universal. Ironically, Qintex, the company that made the bid to purchase United Artists, dropped the deal not long after the film set up shop somewhere else.

Anyone who has seen the original should know what to expect in "Child's Play 2". A particularly nasty scene takes place in Andy's (Alex Vincent) classroom; seriously, was the boy even allowed to watch the movie after that scene?!. A real surprise here is the presence of Jenny Agutter (the nurse in "An American Werewolf in London") and Gerrit Graham (Beef in "Phantom of the Paradise") as Andy's foster parents, particularly with what Chucky does to the dad on the staircase leading to the basement.
Yes, it is a sequel, so it's even harder to take seriously than the original was, but this is truly a good time. You probably won't be sorry that you watched it. As long as you can handle some of the scenes (of course you can; that's why you watch these sorts of movies!).
Also starring Beth Grant and of course, Brad Dourif as the voice of Chucky.
