Visitor Tips and News About Plywood Big Baby
The huge picture of the baby and parents in Goodyear, Arizona are actually pictures taken by a local farming family who run the Duncan Family Farms. They conduct agricultural tours for schools and provide an education experience on farming for visitors. The signs will probably be removed to make way for the City of Goodyear to purchase the business because the tours are being conducted at the end of the flight path of Luke Airforce Base. Seems there may be a problem with those planes maybe losing some ordnance.[Dean Howard, 03/30/2003]
Giant Boy with Tractor
Looks to be a 20+ ft tall boy playing with a lifesize tractor. Three smaller figures are present, one guy running away, one guy sitting on the tractor the boy is playing with and "mom" trying to get the situation under control![Rodney Holmes, 08/23/2001]
These seem to be giant photos/paintings on plywood, which if photographed in certain lighting conditions appear to be Photoshop counterfeits. At least that's what we first thought when we saw this submission! But others have reported seeing it.
When you leave Phoenix headed west on I-10 toward L.A., don't miss the giant toddler playing with a lifesize farm tractor. He's in a farm field on the north side of I-10 about 10 miles west of Phoenix. This twenty foot tall youngster is sitting down in the field playing with a life size tractor. I didn't catch the exit number, but it's somewhere near Avondale. It's plainly visible from the freeway, but sort of sneeks up on you just northwest of where the freeway goes over an overpass. So, keep your eyes peeled for a glimpse of this wonder boy.[K. Ward, 09/22/2000]

- North side of I-10 between exits 125 and 124 where the interstate crosses over a viaduct. If you get off at exit 124 and go north, then turn right at the first intersection, the figures will be off in the field to the right.
