Looks cool! Do they fit inside each other for storage? :think:

Yes @mailing. They stack inside each other. The big one is 600mmx600mm square and 600mm high. The middle one is 500mmx500mm square and 400mm high and the little one is 400mx400mm square and 200mm high.

These are great @Poppop. I love that they are stackable both inside and on top of each other. I also imagine they would be quite sturdy for young ones to step from one box to another. Have they been put to good playtime use?

Yes. They went to a Day care centre and are used daily

These pailings are H3 treated. Copper chrome arsenate (CCA) is a water-borne solution of up to 25% copper, up to 45% chromium and up to 37% arsenic

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Chemical Authority (APVMA) advise that copper chrome arsenate treated timber must not to be used in Australia for high-contact structures such as playground equipment, garden furniture, handrails, picnic tables etc.
