  • The Chimp is very popular as it incorporates extra play equipment into the Funky Monkey Bar design with The Original monkey bar at its core and a supporting swing frame from which hangs a trapeze and a sling swing. The Chimp monkey bar is height adjustable from 1.2 up to 2.3 metres so that the whole family can enjoy the fitness benefits. In time, by adding a Double Swing Frame, the Chimp can be turned into the Gorilla.

    The monkey bars and twirly-whirly bars are powder coated in the colour of your choice. The legs and swing frames of all our products are powder-coated silver, creating our unique industrial look.

    Birthday that keeps giving

    Great quality Monkey bars we bought for our boys 7th birthday. He is a bit of a monkey and often spends time out swinging in these bars. Gets him outside and more active than before. I’d highly recommend any of these bars for anyone that is thinking about it. They will be used! Also I got a pull up bar, so it a win win for kids and dads alike. Great service from the Funky Monkey team in CHCH, they made it super easy.

    The chimp!

    The chimp is amazing, perfect surprise birthday present for our 5 year old! She loves it, spends a lot of her day now practicing what she can do and learning new things! It’s very sturdy, safe, well made, took hubby a little while to put together so just making sure you allow for set up time, can’t wait to add accessories in the near future. Jane was really lovely & helpful.

    The BEST Piece of Play Equipment!

    We love our Funky Monkey Bars. We’ve had ours for almost a year now and the enthusiasm for the Monkey Bars has only got stronger as our girls have got older. They love doing tricks for us and they spend so much time practising! We love the accessories available and the option to keep adding to the Monkey bars over time. We must make special mention of Jane. We ordered our FMB the day before Level 4 lockdown last year and she pulled out all the stops to get it shipped before lockdown began. We were blown away by the service! Buy a set - you won’t regret it!

    Great starter set and hours of fun!

    Our daughter got it for 2019 Christmas present and absolutely loves it! She would spend a lot of time outside playing on the Monkey bars, trapeze and sling swing. I myself would sit on the sling swing and watch her playing on the bars! Best investment and Christmas present we have purchased for her. Gives us some quiet time during 2020 lockdown for sure! We just bought the add-on of the combat ladder and double swing frames to gives her more variety of fun outdoors!

    This was the best buy of the year for our family! It was easy to order online, delivered on time, with all the pieces and my husband was able to put it up easily the day before Christmas. Yes, this is not a cheap product, BUT I am excited by this purchase as I know it will last for many years to come. Buy the best and buy once!!

    Funky Chimp

    So we eventually bought some Funky Monkey Bars. What a treat for our daughter and her friends! The Chimp is great fun. It does sway somewhat but with guidance from the team and my husband's determination it is alot better now. Nothing wrong with the unit - our soil is just very soft so we toughened the soil up! All good and we will be buying more attachments! Excellent service from ordering to delivery to answering my 'swaying' queries. Thank you all.
