Squawk Box March 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: non-bird pet can also enjoy these box, such as squirrels or hamsters! Of course, the bird is not included with the box, you have to provide your own diva!

Everything is packed with paper and both the box and packaging are bird safe. So bigger birdie will have a blast with the box!

There is no information on the content of the box, but you get a nice DIY Parrot Treat, a Did You Know about parrots (they are closely related to the crocodiles), and the Rescue of the Month. For March, part of the money from the sale of each Squawk Box goes to Happy Wings Sanctuary in Virginia!

Planet Pleasures Tropical Teasers The colorful fiber is made out of bamboo for some intense preening action!  It’s threaded on a metal wire so it’ll be sturdy.

Dolphin Bell. A simple hanging toy with soft wood and a square bell.

Either a part of the toy was missing, or it’s a DIY toy, but the wooden piece was easy to remove from the chain and there was nothing to hang it. I’m sure that anyone with a bird has some of those twisting metal c-lock that comes with most of the toys hanging out in their place. That’s what I used to keep the wood on the chain.

Planet Pleasures twister. A favorite among the chewers, this toy is made with natural products such as palm leaves and there’s no metal, plastic, or synthetic ropes. Kiwi likes to have one out on the couch to play with when we watch tv.

Dream Catcher. Kiwi loves destroying these little colorful sticks. I think she prefers them to bells (and she has an obsession with bells).

Walnuts. This month’s treats are Walnuts! Kiwi is not a fan, but she likes to steal my food if I look like I’m enjoying it, so I’ll try with these.

I left the box on HER couch (it’s mine, but she’s trying to build a nest inside) while doing something else and she was already on it, checking on the goodies.

She really wanted this toy, so I took it out of the box.

And she went right to work on it!

There’s already pieces of the wood inside the couch!

Kiwi and I love Squawk Box as it is great to discover new toys, and maybe new favorites. We really enjoyed the variety of texture, colors, and types of toys that we receive in every box, there’s always something she’ll like!

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 received the same toy only a couple of times. 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!

Chirp!
