What about the one for plates? They can get them off the floor or a table.

For picking up, you don't need an animation really (more correctly, you need only 'holding' overlay which is used when object already picked) - you do it via BHAVs, [prim 0x0074] Reach/Put primitive. Usually pickable object contains CT-Reach-Grab and CT-Reach-Drop trees which contain these calls. So you should read bhavs for a pickable object, extract those bhavs, import to your package, and call - via [prim 0x001C] Run Tree by Name primitive - when needed.
