    The Original is the base frame for all our fabulous Funky Monkey Bars frames and the beginning of our modular range of fun.

    It’s our original free-standing, height-adjustable monkey bar that has made the dreams of children everywhere come true – to have a monkey bar in their own backyard.

    Three metres of monkey bar provides plenty of swing and challenge with nine rungs spaced the perfect distance apart to make it challenging yet achievable. The monkey bar is 900mm wide which allows the kids to easily cross paths and swing together.

    Kids love to spin over the twirly-whirly bars that have the dual purpose of making your frame free-standing, which means no need for concrete and you can move it around the backyard.


    • 3m x 900mm, nine rung, height adjustable monkey bar that grows up with the family from 1.2 to 2.3 metres.
    • Four 900mm twirly-whirly bars provide spinning fun and stabilisation.
    • Continue to add-on to The Original as it’s the base frame for all Funky Monkey Bars modular frames. You can add more swing frames and convert to a larger frame.
    • Popular add-ons are the Adjustable Height Gymnastics Bar, Dip Bars, Soccer Net, Netball Hoop and so much more.
    • Super strong and stable, Australian galvanised steel frame that’s completely free-standing.
    • No need to concrete the footings into the ground, just peg onto grass at each anchor point.
    • Stabilised by Funky Monkey Bars unique design and the fun and functional 900mm twirly-whirly bars.
    • Footprint is adaptable to your space anywhere from 4-5m (L) x 2-2.7m (W)

    Great product

    It was very easy to put together and the kids are loving it! I do not have to worry that it will not hold up the weight. Although not standing on a complete flat surface (uneven ground/fake turf) it is very stable.

    New monkey bars

    Excellent, our son loves them! They also look good in the back yard. I was afraid they would look a little bit industrial (like scaffolding) but they have a quality finish and are extremely well made. Delivery went very smoothly and they were easy to install (well, for my husband anyway!).

    2 Thumbs Up

    We’ve had ‘The Original’ for almost 3 months and it’s been a purchase we’re really happy with – the kids are still giving it the same amount of attention as they did on day 1. One of the factors that helped with the decision to purchase one was noticing how many homes in our suburb had one, some of which had been around for a long time (we’d been thinking about getting one for a few years now). When I finally decided to order one, I found the process smooth and easy. The delivery was quick and the frame came in well-packed boxes. Installation of the frame was fairly straightforward as it comes with the required tools and some spares. The installation guide was clear and there were some helpful online videos too - fully recommend watching these before you have a go at installing. I did have a problem with one of the parts and a replacement was sent out to me free of charge. The overall experience I’ve had with Funky Monkey has been great. You can tell the team at Funky Monkey have put a lot of thought into making sure the customer experience is fantastic. Thanks team, keep up the awesome work!
