A History Of Our Funky Monkey Bars

It all started twelve years ago when a little girl asked for a set of monkey bars in her backyard, just like the ones she played on at school. So, her determined dad, Founder Shane Roberts, set off to find the best monkey bar playset he could find, only to discover that the only ones available for retail sale required bolting to concrete or digging up the backyard. 

After strategizing with his builder brother, together they dreamed up a vision for a concept and design that would later become the very first Funky Monkey Bars playset. The original simple metal frame they created served as the launching point for what would become the world’s first free-standing and adjustable modular monkey bar set. 

Free-Standing and Adjustable Monkey Bars

Our free-standing Funky Monkey Bars have been independently awarded for their innovative design and require no bolting to concrete. The base frame for all of our sets is the original and comes with four Twirly Whirly Bars designed to brace the frame against movement and allow it to stand by simply pegging it down to the grass. 

Because our Monkey Bars require no bolting to concrete, they’re easy to move to different areas within your yard or pack up and take with you on your next move. All of our Monkey Bars are height adjustable and come in different dimensions from 1.2 metres to 2.3 metres in height (and some sets like the Gorilla Plus Climbing Net extend as high as 3 metres). So no matter which frame you choose, it’s designed to grow with your child to keep them engaged and challenged.
