    From the publisher: Chibi-Robo is not your typical video game hero. For one thing, he's less than a foot tall. For another, he spends most of his time cleaning up around the house. His main objective is not to recover magical crystals or to overthrow an evil tyrant. For Chibi-Robo, success is simple. His goal? To Spread the Happiness!

    Chibi-Robo is a massive adventure game on a miniature scale. The game opens with a cinema scene set in the Sanderson family living room. For her eighth birthday, Jenny receives a gift from her toy-fanatic father -- a little robot named Chibi-Robo. Chibi-Robo’s sole purpose is to bring happiness to Jenny and her family.

    Chibi-Robo accomplishes this goal by picking up trash, scrubbing the floor, smoothing over family drama, and other everyday tasks. His battery life is limited, so he needs to recharge by plugging himself into wall outlets.
