These are Hako Robo (Robots-in-a-cube) by toymaker Sega Toys. Not only are they cute desktop accessories, but they simulate real-life family relationships by moving in relation to each other, depending on who favors who, who protects who, etc. Did your mom bully you while your dad ran away? Did you always tag along with grandpa because he was a guiding source in your life? Watch how these robot families interact: As soon as you take them out of your case, they start running towards each other, away from each other, or a few steps behind. And like any family, they get stressed out and exhausted if they spend too much time together, so you have to put them back into their boxes before they pass out.

Robot-In-A-Cube Relationship Sim Toy – TokyoMango

家族間の関係性を再現する玩具なのだそうで、非常に興味深いが、何故か公式HPにはそのようなことを説明してる箇所が殆どない、というか分りづらい。
