Funky Monkey Bars awarded a Good Design® Selection


We are proud to announce that Good Design Australia has selected The Original Funky Monkey Bar for a 2017 Good Design Selection and we are now in the running for the coveted Australian Good Design Award, to be announced on June 8, 2017.

The Jury of 35 Australian and international design experts awarded only the very best entries with a Good Design® Selection.

On receiving the Good Design® Selection for The Original Funky Monkey Bar, the Jury commented: “Clean and simple design has resulted in a no-fuss, fully customisable and modular product for outdoor exercise and entertainment.

“The use of materials, fit and finish are well resolved and work cohesively to deliver a high quality product that is a joy to behold.”

The Original Funky Monkey Bar is now in the final selection for a Good Design Award in the product design category.

Funky Monkey Bars Director, Shane Roberts, said it was an honour to be recognised for the design of The Original Funky Monkey Bar.

“The nomination has confirmed what more and more kids in Australia and overseas are already telling us – that we’ve got it right and they love it,” Shane said.

“Kids and their parents love Funky Monkey Bars because it gets them outdoors having fun, climbing, exercising and hanging out with friends.

“Parents have the peace of mind that our play equipment is solid and secure, high quality, Australian made and can be customised to suit their backyard and their kids.

“The best bit about our design is it is modular so The Original Funky Monkey Bar is just the beginning, with The Original you can add more and more exercise and play equipment as kids get stronger and they develop new interests.”

“We are hopeful of a great result when the Good Design Awards are announced in June – it’d be the icing on the cake for the reward we already receive in seeing more kids, just like ours, hanging outdoors and growing in strength and self esteem.”
