  • Robin Harrison: (voiced by Julie Lemieux) A 7-year-old human boy, Robin thinks the arrival of the robots in his background is the best thing in his life.
  • Daisy Harrison: (voiced by Annick Obonsawin) A 7-year-old human girl, Daisy isn't as wise as her age in contrast to him, despite believing the contrary.
