Squawk Box January 2019 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 happy to stick around to see the new toys she received! Fun thing: I’ve given two toys from this box to my niece’s pet hamster and he loves them! 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 feathers), and the Rescue of the Month. For January, part of the money from the sale of each Squawk Box goes to Parrot Education Adoption Rehoming League located in Pittsburg.

Prevue Tropical Teasers Party Time. Your bird will get a lot of enjoyment from this toy, no matter its preferences! You have a bell (a favorite!), some paper, rope, wood, plastic straw, and coconut shell. Perfect to preen, to destroy, and to sooth!

Featherland Paradise Chipboard Treasure Box. A nice foraging toy, it includes a cardboard box with a straw ball inside, and holes to get the bird to work to get to a hidden treat inside! It also has popsicle sticks easy to chew, with colorful paper.

Planet Pleasures Hex Tower. Lately, Planet Pleasures toys have been MY favorite toys to give to Kiwi. They have no ropes to get stuck in little feet, no metal parts, making it perfect to play quietly. This is a toy I gave to Kiwi in her “special-needs cage” (a plastic container with no perch and a couple of toys so her foot can heal).

It’s made with colorful palm leaves, easy to chew, easy to destroy, and perfect for preening needs.

Flower Toy. The petals are made with a soft rubbery material, a bell, and a straw ball.

And what do you do when you see a toy?

You happily attack it!

What about the foam flowers?

They are fun to chew on, and it’s better for your bird’s health than your poor, poor computer cables or remote controller buttons… if you still have some left! This toy was Kiwi’s favorite from this month’s box!

World’s Best Treats – Chamomile Flowers. This month’s treats are these lovely chamomile flowers.

You can give them as is to your bird, or flavor some lukewarm water for some fun tea time! Yes, you can give chamomile tea to your bird as it doesn’t contain any caffeine or theine.

Kiwi is surveying the content of this month’s box, and she was quite pleased!

Kiwi and I love Squawk Box as it is great to discover new toys, and maybe new favorites.

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!
