Abstract
Describes the issues in robotics from a viewpoint of edutainment through a series of activities in the Robot World Cup Initiative and related events, such as the International Robot Games Festival (Robofesta) supported by the Japanese government to promote creative and imaginative education programs, RoboCup Jr. which is designed for kids and the younger generation to play RoboCup games with easily constructible platforms, development of small legged robots for pets in the house or games, and education projects in system engineering. Finally, concluding remarks for future activities are given.
