When the Guinness Book of Records says a stroller as being the smallest in the world, then you know you won’t find anything smaller. And that stroller is the gb Pockit Stroller.
We borrowed a gb Pockit Stroller for a week’s trip to Mallorca for a best friends’ wedding. This nifty travel companion of ours made our trip that much easier and was taken from the airport to the villa to the beach and every restaurant. We have never had a stroller that has been so easy to use and take along for the ride when on holiday.
What You Will Love About the gb Pockit Stroller:
It folds up seamlessly. Not like those strollers you see the shop assistant fold up with ease but then spend 30 minutes on the pavement in front of too many onlookers trying to fold up yourself.
It weighs next to nothing. My 2-year-old, who is a tiny tot herself, managed to lift it. It weighs a mere 4.3kgs. You won’t find a lighter stroller out there.
It is teeny-tiny when folded up. It is the world’s smallest folding stroller after all and can easily fit in the overhead hold of an airplane. The exact dimensions when folded are 30cm x 18cm x 35cm.
It is attention seeking. Not only does it come in a range of colours, it is also good to look at. Fold it up at a restaurant and you are guaranteed to have other parents ask you about it. I know we did.
What Takes Getting Used To With The gb Pockit Stroller:
The brakes shouldn’t be overloaded on a hill. We found that we the brakes couldn’t cope with our older child (Bug) on the hills of Mallorca. She weighs 15kg which is near the upper weight limit of 17kgs and so we just kept an eye out in said situations.
It is not a cart horse. Unlike bigger, sturdier strollers, this little guy wasn’t made to carry a kid plus the kitchen sink. Be careful with loading the arms of the stroller with shopping bags. However, there is a handy basket below the seat to throw in a few nappies and wipes.
The pros far outweigh the cons for us and my husband was the one who was the most impressed by gb Pockit Stroller. So much so that we are considering purchasing one for ourselves before we head to South Africa for a month over December.
