They are zashiki-warashi. I am too tired to paraphrase, so I'll just use wiki's definition.

wikipedia wrote:
...also called Zashiki Bokko (Japanese: 座敷ぼっこ, literally "guestroom basker"), are spirit-like beings told about mostly in the Iwate Prefecture. They are said to be gods that live in zashiki or storage rooms, and they would perform pranks, and those that see one would be visited with good fortune.

There are also legends of how they would bring fortune to families. They are also known from Kunio Yanagita's Tōno Monogatari, Ishigami Mondō, and stories about them appear in the 17th and 18th chapter of the Tōno Monogatari and the 87th chapter titled "Zashiki-warashi" of the Tōno Monogatari Shūi, and in this 17th chapter it is written "families with whom this god dwells are freely able to prosper at will" (kono kami no yadoritamafu ihe ha fūki jizai nari to ifu koto nari) and "zashiki-warashi are also called 座敷童衆."

In recent years, they are also known from television programs and magazines that reported about various Iwate Prefecture ryokan where it is said to be possible to see a zashiki-warashi such as the Ryokufūsō, the Sugawara Bekkan, and the Warabe.

I am teh sad I won't be watching this. Another title that I'm not interesting in buying, but want to stream legally. AS is not in the equation for me.

OVA 1 release 1st episode to be exact. They'll be semi-regular in appearance now that they've been co-opted into the ensemble OP theme song (just as they were in the OVA renditions).
