Pink tower like multiple size green box.

I love the concept of pink tower in montessori. Its consist of 10 blocks with increasing size, ranging from 1cm3 to 10cm3, differing in 3 dimensions. These cubes increase progressively in the algebraic series of the third power. Therefore, the second cube equals 8 of the first; the third cube equals 27 of the first etc .
I have been wanting to have these for the kids to muse with. Instead of buying the actual pink tower I thought of having boxes with that concept therefor I went on and order the boxes with increasing sizes.

Amazingly these boxes can be use for multiple activities as well. 

Stack em.

The kids invent these boxes cover stacking and call them pyramid.

Nest em'

And once the box cover is nested it shows a great 2D multiplication image.

Yeay!!!!! Good try baby!!!!
