Squawk Box Subscription Review – November 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! 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 taste buds), and the Rescue of the Month. For November, part of the money from the sale of each Squawk Box goes to Sanctuary of Ohio Animal Rescue in Cincinnati, OH!

Planet Pleasures Pineapple! A lovely pineapple, about as big as Kiwi, made with tightly constructed palm and sisal.

You can hide treats (safflower seeds, sunflower seeds, little pieces of millet, dried fruits and veggies) in it. It’s a great toy for any destructive beaks. Won’t save your favorite book from a lovebird, but it’ll delay the inevitable!

Super Bird Creations Paper Party Bird Toy, Medium. Colorful lollipop sticks tucked in a soft piece of wood that you can safely attach to the side of a cage.

I like that you can attach it on the side or on the top of the cage. It’s quite versatile and keeps your bird guessing.

Kiwi’s favorite color is yellow closely followed by orange. Yep, she went straight for it!

Prevue Pet Chime Time Cyclone Toy for Med/large bird. Made with aluminum chimes, colorful ground calcium wafers, and plastic beads.

Kiwi was quite interested in the orange plastic chain links.

But then, she got distracted by the shiny metal chimes! They are not noisy and it’s quite calming to hear them from the cage instead of bells!

World’s Best Treats Sweet Potatoes. Every month, you’ll receive one or two treats for your bird. It’s always nice because it helps your bird to try different things.

I know Kiwi is really, really picky when it comes to food, so I’ve started to hide her favorite treats (safflower seeds and millet) among dried fruits and veggies to force her to interact with something new!

But let’s see how she reacts to the sweet potatoes. She seems curious.

She licked it. She hated it.

So she went for the finger instead! (Ouch!)

She still enjoyed everything else in the box!

Kiwi and I love Squawk Box as it is great to discover new toys, and maybe new favorites. After she broke her leg earlier this summer, I was happy to have toys adaptable to her situation (like the pineapple from this box, which is safe as a foot toy).

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!
