About Us

Robot vs Sloth is a small shop dedicated to bringing Seattle the very best handmade, animal-themed gifts for all ages.

Owner La Ru (Lauren Rudeck) started her Pike Place Market story in 2012 when she partnered with a fellow Seattle artist to operate a small shop on Western Avenue called Ugly Baby and La Ru. After outgrowing her space, La Ru moved to First Avenue, where she launched Robot vs Sloth in 2018.

The shop offers a curated selection of textile works and collectibles featuring art by shop owner La Ru (Lauren Rudeck) and talented artists both local and beyond. You’ll find stickers, t-shirts, mugs, quirky toys, kitchen gadgets, and more.

Come down and see it for yourself! Find them on the corner of First Avenue and Pine Street next to the Taproom at Pike Place.
