Social helper robot

"At school, this robot helped or played with everyone near me. Everyone was a little scared at the start but accept the presence of this new 'friend'. He speaks, walks, moves like us but is smaller. He helps me with my work and is recharged using little solar batteries in his 'hair'. He helps with everyday problems, mum overworked with her job and the house (making meals). He winks his eye when we share a secret." —Girl, 11, France
