Goodyear, Arizona: Plywood Big Baby (Gone)

Giant cutout scene by artist John Cerney, created in 1998.
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.
June 2013: Reported gone due to construction.

Big Plywood Baby

Sadly, the entire stretch of I-10 West between exits 24 and 25 has been bulldozed to accommodate the construction of an overpass ramp. In fact, exits 24 and 25 do not currently exist. I can only hope that the baby is safe in someone's garage, somewhere (I had come from Philadelphia and was really disappointed to not see it). Perhaps we haven't seen the last of him.

Giant baby and tractor.

Big Baby

Both tractors are still there (the one that the baby plays with and the separate piece). However, the fleeing farmer is missing. Photo from 2012.

The giant baby and accessories have been around since at least 2001, although they have gone through several moves, vandalism by morons, and repairs. The one consistent has always been the giant, unsettling baby.

Giant Baby Boy

Although baby is still sitting out there in the middle of this field, the tractors are gone. This giant-size baby is not a Photoshop image -- it's a real piece of wood painted to look like a baby!

Giant Baby with Tractor

Out in a field in Goodyear, Arizona, there use to be a giant billboard-like picture of a baby holding a tractor with smaller billboard-like figures of mom trying to get the situation under control, one fellow running away and one fellow sitting on the tractor that the baby is playing with. These were actual 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.

What I found. though. was a giant baby with graffiti as high as those doing the dastardly deed could reach, and the fellow, who was trying to run away from the tractor, was doing it without a head and half of his left leg. Mom was nowhere to be found! "The Spoilers" found this fun and unique attraction!

Giant Boy with Tractor

The giant boy and tractor are now situated right next to I-10 at an overpass. We tried to get close to take a picture, but there are no access roads to the structure. There has been obvious road work and you need a 4X4 to jump an 8 inch curb and drive across a farm field. So be ready with your camera as you travel the interstate.
