Squawk Box Subscription Review – April 2018

Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure

Squawk Box is a monthly birdie care package of 4-6 bird treats, toys, and more delivered straight to your door. Because parrots, big and small, need a great amount of stimulation to thrive, Squawk Box will deliver a new selection of toys every month. Every crate is carefully curated to keep our feather friends happy and healthy!

The box is available in four sizes: Little Birdie (great for Lovebirds, Parrotlets, Cockatiels, Parakeets, Green Cheek Conure sized), Middle Birdie (great for Quakers, Conures, Senegals, Pionus, Timneh Greys, Caiques, some Mini Macaws & some small cockatoos), Big Birdie (Amazons, Cockatoos, Eclectus, and Congo African Grey sizes), and Jumbo Birdie (large Amazons, Macaws, Moluccan Cockatoos). The monthly subscription starts at $24.95 for the Little Birdie to $44.95 for the Jumbo Birdie, with significant discounts for longer subscriptions. Knowing that parrots have a long life ahead of them, and that they will destroy everything around them (including couches, books, important papers, walls), the longer subscription is definitely a must!

Also, for each Squawk Box ordered, a percentage goes to parrot rescues. Not only do you provide fun new treats to your own bird, but you help other parrots as well!

This review is for the Little Birdie. My assistant reviewer is Kiwi the lovebird. As soon as she sees the box, she’ll follow me around to get me to open the box for her! (I’m not kidding, she crawled under the door of the room where I left it!)

Everything in the box, including all the yellow paper squiggles that would make some bird really happy. Oh, and the box is also safe to destroy.

There is no information on the content of the box, but you get a nice DIY Parrot Treat, a Did You Know about Parrot’s vision, and the Rescue of the Month. For April, part of the money from the sale of each Squawk Box goes to Hurlins Parrot Rescue in Traverse City, MI!

And we have a new sticker!!! (Try to read it without singing the song! You’re welcome!)

She was so excited when I opened the box!

I got bitten when trying to remove the yellow squiggles!

She was inside the box before I could remove the toys for the pictures!

“I stay here! All mine!”

Nutri-Berries featuring Popcorn. I can’t count the number of times I found Kiwi stealing popcorn from my bowl, when she doesn’t just dive in it. Don’t worry, it’s always popped on the stove with nothing added to it, so it’s safe for her to eat.

So these ones come in handy, she can have HER popcorn while I keep mine! (Who am I kidding, she’ll still think mine are tastier). It contains popcorn, caramel flavor, peanuts, millet and other seeds. They are not as crunchy as my own, but they are sweet and quite tasty (yes, I tasted them. I will taste everything I give to her.)

Lattice Ball with Bell. A winner everytime. I’m pretty sure there is a heaven where these toys disappear because I can’t find them, not even under my couch, after a couple of days. But I hear them. It’s weird, but definitely a fun toy!

Super Bird Creation – Dainty Doily. It’s the first toy she tried to destroy when I opened the box. She likes it. And there’s a bell!

Bonka Bird Toy. Bells. A lot of Bells. Handing from metal rings, but bells. This is not the toy you give your bird when you have a headache, just sayin’. But Kiwi loves bells. She loves this toy. Enough said.

Featherland Paradise Bird toy. A ton of colorful popsicle sticks for the pleasure of any discerning destructive beak. This is when Kiwi and I started to think that this box was made for her. Like someone at Squawk Box read her reviews and made a box just for her. Full of popsicle sticks and bells!

What do you think of this toy, Kiwi?

“I iz busy.”

A happy beak!

This was an awesome box for a bird like Kiwi who likes bells and colorful popsicle sticks! She even tried the popcorn!

Kiwi and I love Squawk Box as it is great to discover new toys, and maybe new favorites. I’m happy to say that having new toys every month got Kiwi even more curious about new things, and less stressed out when something different happens. And seeing that Kiwi recognizes the box every month makes me think that she really enjoys getting new toys to love or hate!

I’m impressed by the variety of toys available out there as Kiwi has been subscribed to Squawk Box for a while now and she only received the same toy once or twice! It’s fun to get a box of new toys and treats to discover, instead of spending countless hours at the pet store in front of a very limited selection to end up buying the same toy over and over again! And sometimes, your bird will surprise you by loving a toy or treat you were sure it would hate!
