This set includes eleven painted bars. They are 1" hardwood dowels 23-1/2" long painted with non-toxic paint. About 1/2" of the bars' ends are intentionally left untreated for better gluing while assembling the monkey bars and vertical ladder.
The bars are painted with bright colors (red, blue, green and yellow) and they are a great addition to Do-It-Yourself kit. Seven of the painted bars are for assembling wall bars and the rest are for monkey bars.
