    I checked out some reviews and ordered one for Esther. I thought the Christmas Box was a good way to try it out and see if it's worth a subscription. This review in particular sold me on trying it out:

    UK to USA Shipping Time & Cost WORTH IT!
    by Diana written 2 months ago
    Yes, if you live in the States, the Happy Bunny Club boxes cost a bit more in shipping than for GB customers and for EU customers. No, if you live in the States, you won't get your box immediately after the monthly ship-out date (the 21st of each month), like GB customers do, and nor will you receive it as quickly as EU customers do. YES, Happy Bunny Club is WORTH IT! House Rabbits NEED: • New, diverse, toys, for fresh mental stimulation. HBC: √ • SAFE, all-chewable, all-edible, nontoxic toys. HBC: √ • Chews in many flavors & textures for dental care. HBC: √ • All-natural, all-ORGANIC, all-VEGAN, treats. HBC: √ • Decidedly hard-to-find, organic leaves & flowers. HBC: √ While being a US subscriber to UK-based HBC has minor drawbacks (like the £ to $ exchange rate, for example), HBC boxes not only provide diverse, vegan, non-chemically treated toys, treats, and foods - made from bunny-safe hays, grasses, herbs, leaves, sticks, wood pieces, flowers, fruits, veggies, fibers, and vines - US customers are able to receive UK-brand, trusted, quality, house rabbit products, which are otherwise rather difficult to find in the USA. Those products which may be found elsewhere, AND deliverable to USA addresses, often cost much more than what the same products cost, delivered by Happy Bunny Club's surprise monthly boxes. Additionally, a small portion of all proceeds, from every monthly box sold, is donated by Happy Bunny Club to a verified charity which helps bunnies - whether they be shelter bunnies, disabled buns, elderbuns, low-cost rabbit veterinary specialist clinics, low-cost bunny spay/neuter programs, etc. Happy Bunny Club means that for the price of caring for one's own bun, one also helps buns in need of care! One of the best perks I really appreciate about HBC boxes: Inside the nontoxic-inked, chewable cardboard box that is received, is a newsletter. In the newsletter, Happy Bunny Club... • Suggests an Unboxing, 'How-To,' (in case your bunny is funny!); • Thoroughly describes the charity-of-the-month that was selected to receive a portion of HBC box proceeds for financial support, and what the charity does to help rabbits; and, perhaps, best of all: • Describes each product included in the box, including brands, parent-company manufacturers, and... EVERY INGREDIENT found in EVERY INCLUDED PRODUCT - so you know for sure EXACTLY what you'll be giving your bunny to play with, chew on, forage through, and eat!!! That's the kind of trustworthiness & transparency that everone with a House Rabbit - heck, even everyone who has any kind of pet - really wants (and what pets need!).​


    They just began shipping Christmas Boxes today but I'll let you all know what Esther and I think about it when it gets here.

    Interesting concept, along the physical product "loot crate" vein. I am curious have others here (aside from lilnaugrim) tried other "box" type mail-order products before?

    I've tried a couple - one for dogs and one with cosmetics (not from the big name box company because they include cosmetic products tested on animals). I found I didn't use the makeup quickly enough to make it worthwhile to continue butI got some good products. With 3 dogs, the dog treat/toy boxes were great but I've got one who has megaesophagus and can't have the treats included. I switched it up and started getting something for each of them at the local pet store. I probably pay a bit more for everything individually but I don't like seeing a sad greyhound. lol

    It was just the Bark Box :) the usual one ^_^
    https://barkbox.com/

    It went to my best friend's dog who is basically my nephew :-D I unfortunately don't really recall what was in it, it was just for one month, don't think we continued with it but it was some neat things. I'll have to dig up the photo later to see what was inside, I know she took a picture of it.

    So we got our Happy Bunny Club Christmas box last week. I promised my significant other that we would wait until the weekend when he would be home to see the unboxing too so we had an early Christmas for Esther on Saturday. We took a video of the whole thing but I'm attaching a picture so you can see what came in the box. The toys seem to be high quality and she's definitely enjoying them. Esther isn't very interested in the treats just yet but she's very slow to warm up to new foods and will likely have to sniff them for several days before she gives them a taste-test. I've watched several unboxing videos online and all of the other rabbits seemed SUPER excited about the treats.

    In the picture, I've tried to circle the items that came in her box as there are lots of other items in her room. The boxes have some variety so even if you ordered one, this shouldn't spoil the surprise. The toy she's checking out is the Cupid & Comet Cracker. She LOVES this! Next to that is a set of "book and pencil" chew and toss toys. She's done a little flinging around with the "pencils." To the right of the book and pencil set is a willow ball toy which Esther is also really enjoying. Hanging on the outside of her cage are pine cones covered in parsley and coconut for chewing. To the right of her plastic keys, you'll see the other two treat items. The large cube is the "golden gift box" and includes a cube of marigold and herbs that is stuffed with hay and sprinkled with coconut. The small round object is a Snowball treat (the box included a large bag of these). The Snowballs are made of alfalfa, carrot and timothy topped with coconut.

    Esther seems to really be enjoying it! As a one-off item, it was pretty expensive (~$45US) including priority shipping to the USA, but if you sign up for a year (which I'm considering), it averages out to about $30US a month. Everything came in the box you see filled with pink tissue paper. They use safe inks so the bunnies can play and chew on the boxes too! We also got a letter explaining the ingredients in each item, the bunny charity being supported and more. If you have any questions, please let me know!

    Yes! Just got ours last night and I took a video of it. Wiki was mostly enthused about it, he really liked the paper XD
    I'll edit the video and post it here when I can!

    Does anyone get these? I think it would be really fun, but it is so expensive! Also what are some other boxes y'all like?
