Squawk Box February 2020 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 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 (chocolate is bad, but carob is good!). Every month, Squawk Box donates part of their profits to a new bird charity. February’s donation is to the Wires Wildlife Rescue in Australia!

“This is the toy I like.”

Bodacious Bites – This toy is made with soft wood, easy to chew. There’s colorful plastic beads between each pieces, and everything is on a metal wire. Kiwi has a lot of experiences with this type of toy and she’d like to remind you to always look to see if the metal loop are closed as some bead could get stuck on them.

“LOOK! BELL!” It also has a bell.

Planet Pleasures Rose Bouquet. Fully shreddable toy, there’s no plastic or metal in this toy, only woven palm leaves. You can hang it in the cage, attach it on the side of the cage or just on a flat surface. It seems like we get a Rose Bouquet every February to celebrate with our favorite birdie (s)! They are so cute that even if your bird is not a fan, it’s a lovely decoration for spring time!

Feathered Addictions. We love feathered addictions toys as they are 100% natural with materials such as vines and palm fiber.

This toy is in the shape of a basket so you can hide treats in it and your angry ball of feathers can pull everything out of the basket. I’m not sure what is the type of material the squishy pink cylinder is made of, but I trust this company and Kiwi will have a blast destroying it (instead of the foam on the couch as it almost has the same texture).

Nature’s Instinct ForageWise Party Bag. This fun toy is almost DIY as you can hook it to the four little party bags with the rope the way you want.

Each bag is made with colorful pieces of paper.

And you can hide more toys and treats inside the bags. Also, a full lovebird can fit snuggly inside a bag (I was too late to take a picture, but it happened).

Talon Treats – Carob Chips. This is the closest treat to chocolate your bird is allowed to eat! They taste sweet, and they almost taste like chocolate, but they are not chocolate. They are human-grade treats, so you can bake them in a healthy muffin to share with your bird if you don’t mind the taste. As usual, Kiwi noped away. She’s a picky, grumpy bird! 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.

This was another great box. Kiwi’s favorite was definitely the bell. She liked the toy it was attached to, but the bell is the definite winner. The DIY party bag toy was also a win as it’s made with paper, and she likes destroying paper.

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!
