monkey bars

When your kids are stuck at home 24/7, there isn’t a lot for them to do and it starts to show. You’ve let them have more daily screen time. You don’t love that, but it feels cruel not to. Without other ways to keep them busy, the constant whining and cries of “I’m bored!” mean you keep giving in. Screen time helps… for a while.

But with active kids like yours, by the end of the day, they’re bouncing off the walls.

You wish you had the time to take them somewhere they could run around, or maybe just the room for them to spread out and play. You sometimes daydream of having an indoor jungle gym for them.

And also for you — you’re spending more time online than ever before, cramped in a chair that you know is doing your body no favours. But in your home, you’re sure that there simply isn’t the space.

Look up.

What if you could install a piece of equipment that lives discreetly in your hallway or on any ceiling. One that engages your kids, gets them exercising and expending all that surplus energy, while also helping you build upper body core muscles strength, supporting your heart and lung function — all while having a lot of fun?

LarZan Monkey Bars are the perfect solution for playful kids and adults who want to increase their daily exercise — without having to buy a home gym or set aside hours for classes.

Fitting discreetly against your ceiling (in a space you’re not already using) LarZan Monkey Bars are custom-made to fit your home. They blend in, so that even your 6-foot grandpa could walk past and forget that they are there (just like ours does!) 

Live in a rental? No problem! Installing LarZan Monkey Bars is just like installing a bookshelf, so you can take them down without structural damage. In fact, we can even build you a free-standing version that doesn’t require wall-mounting.

Best of all, the price includes delivery and installation. No need to follow complicated instructions doing it yourself. No need for tools or special screws.

Family Photo

This is what our playful family looks like in the midst of a photo shoot.

Four years since our first version went up, we’ve discovered that the appeal of these bars doesn’t fade. Our kids use them every time they enter the hallway. 

Let’s face it, it’s way more fun to swing than it is to walk!

When friends come over they always run straight to the monkey bars — because who else has a playground inside their house??

Adults love getting a full body stretch or doing pull-ups. Doing this doesn’t just benefit you: as a parent, role-modelling lifelong exercise is one of the best ways to influence children to make healthy choices. Plus, it feels great!

10 minutes

As little as 10 min of exercise per day will make a big difference to your long-term health. This is even more true for your kids. Exercise is essential for their physical development, their mental health and their immune system.

Illustrated lungs

Kids need to exercise in order to develop lung capacity so they can take in large amounts of oxygen and push out carbon dioxide. When kids spend too much time on devices, they tend to crouch in and shrink their lungs rather than expanding them, so the stretches they get when using the monkey bars can counteract some less-desirable effects of all that extra screen time.

Hanging, swinging and stretching with the help of gravity is a powerful and effective form of exercise that’s fun enough to become a daily habit.

LarZan Monkey Bars

Use our ‘pulling’ muscles, not our ‘pushing’ muscles, so hanging offers a unique strength and movement input

Take pressure off our heart and lungs and gives them more space to work

Improve core strength and create grip strength

Lift our arms above our head, which offsets hours of those static arm positions we use in front of computers, and activates our lymphatic system that plays a crucial role in maintaining our immune function

Increase wrist bone density – a key site for bone loss

Improve the health, function and mobility of our shoulders

To maintain healthy bones and muscles and to prevent osteoporosis, we all need regular exercise. LarZan Monkey Bars can be used by children, teens and adults so that the whole family can stay active year round.

How to order your custom-made monkey bars

First, we’ll ask you to measure the length of your hallway or the area where you want the monkey bars installed so we know which size will work best in YOUR home.

Then, you’ll take a photo of the chosen hallway or area so we can know how best to design YOUR monkey bars to fit into YOUR home.

After that, you’ll choose an installation date and you’ll pay the 20% deposit to secure your Monkey Bars on the date you’ve asked for.

The final step? Do a happy dance with your kids while you count down the days to getting them up in your home!

We’ve set up the process to be as easy as possible, so that your kids can enjoy swinging from bar to bar within a week.

Your LarZan Monkey Bars are fun for all ages. Your kids will continue to use them as they grow. If you plan to move into a new home. No problem! For a small fee, we can move them for you.

When I first became a parent, I dreamed of turning my home into an indoor playground. I even wanted to replace the stairs with a slide! Once my babies started walking, reality hit as I realised my house also had to function for adults. The fireman’s pole I’d hoped for just wasn’t going to work.

Seeing my kids play on the monkey bars in the park, I got an idea. My vision combined with Matias’ design know-how and carpentry skills led to our first set of indoor monkey bars. The kids LOVED them. They quickly became the centre of attraction in our house — and the preferred method for getting to the bathroom.

What I hadn’t anticipated were all the different ways the monkey bars get used, from abs exercises to multi-player games. Best of all, unlike most new gadgets, the appeal of these didn’t wear off. Four years in and our kids still use them every single day — and we do, too!
