You imbue an inanimate figure with mobility and a semblance of life.  The figure must be prepared in advance and can be of any quality as long as it retains its humanoid form.  The animated figure then may move about in a manner you designate.  The figure is unable to attack or perform any difficult task.  The figure may lift up to one pound or push 2 pounds.  The animated figure can be of any non-magical material -- wood, metal, stone, fabric, leather, ceramic, glass, etc.  This spell is normally used to entertain small children.
