Squawk Box December 2018 Subscription Review

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! They now ship to Australia!

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, Kiwi the Lovebird, is always impatient to dig in and will walk around the box until I get to the point! Fun thing: I’ve seen a pet Squirrel enjoy this box a lot! So don’t be shy to order it if you think your non-bird pet will enjoy the treats and toys!

Everything is packed with paper and both the box and packaging are bird safe. So bigger birdie will have a blast with the box! Of course, the bird is not included with the box, you have to provide your own diva!

There is no information on the content of the box, but you get a nice DIY Parrot Treat, a Did You Know about parrots (this time about their feet and how they can use them to eat), and the Rescue of the Month. For December, part of the money from the sale of each Squawk Box goes to Connecticut Parrot Rescue, in Stratford, CT.

So, right after pretending to be cute for the pictures, Kiwi saw one of her favorite toy ever.

I’m not kidding. She can’t choose between getting mad at the bell or chewing on the balsa wood. This is a toy we bought multiple time in previous years.

Super Bird Creations Candy Cane. This is made with small pieces of dyed balsa wood separated by green plastic beads with two fully working bells on each ends. I remember buying her this toy about 10 years ago and she still loves it (and usually destroys it in about two days).

She didn’t care about anything else on the table.

As you can clearly see here, there’s a bell!

Planet Pleasures Mini Brush. A cute quiet toy for grooming and destroying.

Feather Addictions ‘Tis the Season Preening Delight. A balsa Joy Sign, two rattan balls, a vine star, some balsa wood, and maize preeners. A lot of different textures and colors to keep a beak busy!

Paradise Toy Rope and Bell toy. Since Kiwi has been subscribed to Squawk Box, it never happened once that I looked at a toy and said no.

It has a bell, but the bell is in really bad shape, so is the ring inside the toy. Also, since Kiwi broke her leg, we have to be careful with ropes, and we are afraid that her foot could get caught in the rope from this one.

Golden Feast Healthy Treats Whole Star Anise. Every month, we get a treat or two to try, or to enjoy. Kiwi is in the category “will hate anything that is not millet or pellets”. I’m still adding them to her pellets!

Kiwi and I love Squawk Box as it is great to discover new toys, and maybe new favorites. For the first time in over two years of being subscribed, this box contains a toy that I would not give to Kiwi, but everything else is awesome, and fun with some noisy toy, and some great ones for a quiet time.

I’m impressed by the variety of toys available out there as Kiwi has been subscribed to Squawk Box for over two years now and she only has 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!
