## Material

The Pink Tower consists of ten cubes that differ in size by 1cm from one to the next. The largest cube is 10cm cubed and the smallest is 1cm cubed.
They are usually painted pink, but are sometimes left as natural wood. The important thing is that they are all the same color so that the only difference between them is the size.
