MICHAEL Jackson’s creepy jungle gym where he invited terminally ill kids to play is up for sale for £1.4million.
The alleged paedophile had the hollowed-out tree installed at his Neverland Ranch in California from 1994 to 2005.

It is surrounded by a collection of bronze animal sculptures which are also part of the £1.4m sale, TMZ reports.
According to the report, the site was popular with children and the pop singer allowed many sick kids to play inside the replica tree.
The Thriller star, who is accused by at least seven different people of molesting them as youngsters, had a special plaque added to the sculpture which had a message written by Michael.
It reads: “Magical children don’t worry how, don’t delay – this moment’s now.”
Among the animal sculptures is a warthog, an ostrich, a hippo, an orangutan, a giraffe and a crocodile.
Jackson, who died in 2009 of a drug overdose, was this year accused by two former child companions – James Safechuck and Wade Robson – of grooming and rape in a four-hour documentary Leaving Neverland.
His estate has vehemently denounced the documentary as a cruel “character assassination”.
Michael Jackson strongly denied all allegations of sexual abuse made against him.
Last month, it emerged that the singer wept as friend Marlon Brando confronted him at Neverland about child abuse allegations.
Film legend Brando – who befriended the King of Pop in the 80s – told authorities in 1994 that he had quizzed Jacko about his sex life.
It came as Jackson faced accusations of sex abuse by 13-year-old Jordan Chandler – a case that was later settled out of court for $23million.

Brando revealed in the recorded interview: “I had asked him if he was a virgin and he just sort of laughed and giggled.
“He said, ‘Oh, Brando.’ I said, ‘Well, what do you do for sex?’ And he was acting fussy and embarrassed.”
He added that Jackson was uncomfortable with the “f-word” and was too shy to speak openly about sex.
The Godfather star went on to challenge Jackson about rumours of child abuse – which Jackson had always denied.
Recalling the conversation, which took place at an undisclosed date, Brando told prosecutors that the pop icon then broke down in tears.
Brando said that a crying Jackson began explaining how he hated his violent and authoritarian father Joe Jackson.

The actor added: “With this mode of behaviour that’s been going on, I think it’s pretty reasonable to conclude that he may have had something to do with kids.
“My impression was that he didn’t want to answer because he was frightened to answer me.”
The bombshell conversation with prosecutors investigating paedophile claims against Jackson has now been uncovered by a US podcast.
It has been made public for the first time in the series final of Telephone Stories: The Trials of Michael Jackson.
