The 5 Pods Free Standing Pod Climber is our second tallest model of individual freestanding pod climbers. It has five circular pod steps which allow children to move all around the central post, climbing from any direction. The steps also have open spaces near their edges which allows them to double as hand grips for easier climbing. There is a central post which runs through each of the steps and into the ground, making them extremely sturdy. At the top step this post becomes a vertical handrail, which allows children to hang on as they stand on the top step. This is a particularly important safety feature, since children will naturally want to climb all the way to the top. These pod climbers go great when installed together, allowing children to easily move from one to the next. You can build your own custom climbing areas by combining multiple Free Standing Pod Climbers in just about any arrangement, and with just about any colors.
