WA Monkey Bar Business sets up e-commerce online store

In response to growing demand for its backyard playgrounds, Western Australian family company Funky Monkey Bars has launched a new e-commerce website so that buyers can now purchase and arrange delivery online

The new website displays the entire Funky Monkey Bar range which now includes its Original Funky Monkey Bar, a host of extra pay equipment from which you suspend from its ‘meccano’ style frame as well as complete playground packages.

With plenty of photos, details on dimensions, materials, weights and colours for all its play equipment now provided on the website, parents and carers can easily work out what’s going to fit in their own backyard and make a purchase with confidence.

Funky Monkey Bars Director, Shane Roberts, said the website is Funky Monkey Bars shop-front as many of his customers are now buying from interstate and overseas and he wants them to almost feel like they can touch and feel the products.

“One of the big benefits of our monkey bars is their size, strength and stability and we wanted to create an online experience where customers felt they were almost able to reach out and touch our products.

“When we display our monkey bars, or when families visit our Showroom, the first thing they instinctively do is to walk up to a monkey bar and give it a shake and they see that it is as strong as we claim – we wanted to give that reassurance to online buyers,” Shane said.

The start-up family business has been overwhelmed by support for its outdoor playground equipment and credits its success with the connection with parents - just like them - who want to see their kids getting outdoors doing the things they cherish from their own childhoods.

“We’re all about getting kids outdoors and challenging them with play equipment that is age appropriate because in pushing themselves kids grow. And we know that it works because it’s our own kids that led us to start-up this business four years ago and they, and their friends, remain our ultimate reviewers.”
