  • THE BASE FRAME THAT CAN GROW

    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.

    • Super strong and stable, Australian galvanised steel frame that’s completely free-standing.

    Hands down the best money we’ve spent for our kids

    Assembly was simple and the finished product looks sleek. Don’t waste your money buying cheaper versions. The adjustable height was a huge selling point for me, along with the fact they are made right here in Australia. We really should support more businesses like this one. The quality is worth every cent. My five year old son could hardly go across once without any assistance.... 3 weeks later, he goes back and forth with ease and confidence. Friends of ours are so impressed with these Monkey bars, they will be getting some for themselves!! My biggest regret is not buying a bigger set. Thank you Funky Monkey.

    AMAZING!

    We have had so much fun using the monkey bars and even my youngest loves to hang off the twirl bars. We can not wait to add to it when we move to a bigger place!

    Best fit for a small space.

    We purchased this for our son in lieu of a birthday party (thanks to covid). It fits perfectly in our small space and we’re very impressed with its sturdy construction. It has kept him busy and active daily. Great to build his skills and confidence and encourage him outdoors. Also got the cricket/ soccer net which has had a lot of use in honing his kicking skills.

    The original and the best!

    We bought The Original recently during Victoria’s isolation and it’s the best investments we’ve ever made in our family’s fun. Both kids and adults have enjoyed them as the kids play, we exercise. It’s a great reason to go outside when we live on an empty block with nothing else. Love the quality and design.

    Lockdown remedy

    Great quality product, well made and very sturdy. Has been used everyday since purchase – even on wet days after a wipe-down. Kids are addicted to it and has been a real lifesaver being in hard lockdown in Victoria.
