Parents wanted.

Congratulations! It's a 15-foot, 350-pound baby that was conceived, designed and carved at a studio in Queens.

Playwrights Horizons, which was founded in 1971, had the giant prop created by its set designer for a recent production at the theater along 42nd Street in Manhattan.

The prop was used on the Off-Broadway stage and it's up for "adoption" on-line.

The prop appeared in "Mankind" by Robert O'Hara. The original work was commissioned by Playwrights Horizons and had its world premier in December 2017.

The play is described as an "audacious, hilarious allegory envisions an uncannily familiar future."

150 inquiries have come into their ad on Craigslist. They'll make a decision by the end of the week.

Playwrights Horizons General Manager Carol Fishman says they want the prop to have a good home and the new family needs to have a truck big enough to carry it.

Playwrights Horizons Marketing Director Kyle Sircus says people have called to ask about putting it on their front lawn.
