Squawk Box January 2020 Subscription Review

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

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 what’s new and fun in her box. 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 Parrot Pudding), and a Did You Know about parrots (A bacteria-resistant feather pigment). Every month, Squawk Box donates part of their profits to a new bird charity. This month’s donation is to the Chloe Sanctuary in Fallbrook, CA!

Kiwi didn’t waste any time picking up her favorite toy from this month’s box! Once again, I couldn’t get any pictures with her that weren’t blurry. She was way too excited about all the toys to stand still and pose!

Once again, Kiwi found a toy worthy of her attention within second of opening the box.

Before I could do anything, she already had her beak on it and wouldn’t let go.

Planet Pleasures Bamboo toy. Made with bamboo and natural ropes, this toy is great for your favorite chewer. Kiwi went nuts for the bamboo, trying to make little strips of wood to tuck in her tail. She’s quite hormonal, so she needs a lot of chewing toys to keep herself from destroying everything else in the house. I like that this is both a foot toy that she can play with outside of her cage, and a toy we can hang in her cage.

Super Bird Creations Crinkle Crinkle Little Star  It has everything to please a little bird : vines, crinkles, colorful beads, and a bell.

Calypso Creations Pacific Perch A bamboo perch with slits full of colorful papers. The perch itself has different texture with the smoother end, the braided rope and all the slits. It can be attached to the cage with a metal screw and washer. We received a similar perch in the September 2018 box, but bird are destructive so this old perch might have not survived (it did not in this house!)

Featherland Paradise Small Triple Foraging Toy. Great to prevent your bird to get bored, you can hide little treats in the boxes and let them have a blast destroying and foraging to get to their treat!

You can put more paper, seeds, nuts, or anything your bird really likes.

NutriAve Royal Coconutty New Year’s Mix. This month’s treat is a mix of royal raisins, cashews and coconut.

The raisins are quite big, and Kiwi didn’t want to have anything to do with them. I’m glad we get a new treat every month, it forces us, the hoomans, to work with our bird to get them to accept new foods and new experiences. Last month’s treat was a success, so there’s still hope, even with old grumpy birds!

This was an other great box. Kiwi’s favorite was definitely the Planet Pleasures one with the bamboo sticks. She started destroying it before I even had time to take everything out of the box for the pictures, that’s how much it spoke to her!

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! It’s also a great way to get your bird less afraid of new things, and more curious about things around it.

I’m impressed by the variety of toys available out there as Kiwi has been subscribed to Squawk Box for a long time now and she received the same toy only a couple of times. And it’s usually a toy she loves and has destroyed, so it’s a win. 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!
