Taking The Fun Back Outside

Funky Monkey Bars is the brainchild of Shane Roberts, who back in 2009 resorted to designing his own set of monkey bars for his two young daughters after failing to find what he wanted in pre-fabricated sets.

Bombarded by requests from neighbours and friends to build one for them too,Shane developed Funky Monkey Bars into a business and in 2014, Shane was joined by Colin Burdle, a structural engineer from the UK who saw further possibilities for the concept in both additional flexibility and features that now make ‘Funky Monkey Bar’s fully customisable to the requirements of each individual family.

The design and quality of the Funk Monkey Bar playgrounds have caused the company sales to skyrocket and their Yangebup,Perth-based business has recently been awarded the Business News Rising Stars Award, recognised as one of the Top-10 fastest growing companies in Western Australia.

With their quality construction and flexible designs it’s no wonder these modular sets of colourful monkey bars are turning the heads of practical parents who are looking to get kids outside and active.
