I got Pink Treehouse last week. I noticed that there is lots

but I'm trying to figure out if it is possible to fit 15 trios
 in the box.

It's a pretty neat packing problem, props for posing it.

The answer, is to not constrain yourself to storing all the
pieces in 3-piece nests. I can only pack 14 nests in the box.
Without the nesting constraint...


The pieces you can't see easily in that picture are nested
inside the base pieces of the stacks.
