In lieu of comments here are the lyrics to Soft Cell's "Tainted Love"

Sometimes I feel I've got to
Run away I've got to
Get away
From the pain that you drive into the heart of me
The love we share
Seems to go nowhere
And I've lost my light
For I toss and turn I can't sleep at night
Once I ran to you (I ran)
Now I'll run from you
This tainted love you've given
I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all
Oh...tainted love
Tainted love
Now I know I've got to
Run away I've got to
Get away
You don't really want IT any more from me
To make things right
You need someone to hold you tight
And you'LL think love is to pray
But I'm sorry I don't pray that way
Don't touch me please
I cannot stand the way you tease
I love you though you hurt me so
Now I'm going to pack my things and go
Tainted love, tainted love (x2)
Touch me baby, tainted love (x2)
Tainted love (x3)


robots = 5


^ thats a stupid reason to give a design a good score.

overall, i do like the design, especially for the red cross. but i think that RC-1 should be clearer on the rest of the robots so you can see its the same robot, and not multiple ones.


i totally didn't get the red cross connection until i read the comments. because i am challenged today, apparently. but i was going to give it a great score anyway. because the robots! are so friendly! i can't put my finger on what it is, but your design brought a smile to my face. thanks.


this love care realationship reminds me much of hero bear and the kid. really nice work glad to see something other than hearts and flowers. Hopefully it will stand out.


oh also if kapow cant understand its the same robot kapaow shouldn't be allowed to leave comments


Great characters! The kid is fantastic like out of a 50's comis strip!! Great idea, one of the best subs i have seen for this comp! LOVE IT... just not on that pink :)


Would anyone in the general population understand that this design has anything to do with the Red Cross?


Great design with a great robot !

I'm not looking at this just for the Red Cross
contest since each entry to the Red Cross is
also available for the overall Threadless
competition. Those red pajama kids are so
cute too. Very nice submission, starr226 .

And Yay for "Hero Bear and the Kid" !


I like the originality. The only thing I would change is the robot in the lower right corner next to the sleeping person...looks like the robot is stepping on him with that one leg. Move that one leg over a bit please.


this more or less rocks. :P


pick just one. any of these images might look better on its own.


Cool style

The lyrics aren't Soft Cell's. It's a cover song.

NIce robot.


Aww, it's cute and it made me happy! I have several friends who are into childcare, and they should not be without this shirt. And woe is me for not having a bottomless closet! $5

you're right, joan, but i tend to doubt anyone on threadless has ever heard Gloria Jones's 1964 version, unless it was on GTA San Andreas, and I doub t anyone really knew what was going on with it to make a connection.


One of the best here, good job.
How about RC-125 ?


$5 and print it, print it, print it! Wonderful execution of robot/human pairing theme.
