GB Pockit+ Lightweight Baby Stroller Review

When it comes to traveling with a little one, the last thing parents want is a heavy, large stroller to lug around along with everything else we need (which is basically anything ever made for a child!). We came across the GB Pockit+ Lightweight Baby Stroller, which in 2014 earned a Guinness World Record for being the most compact option on the market, and we knew we had to test it out.

So, we took our 16-month-old on an adventure around the city to see if the umbrella stroller (meaning it folds up like an umbrella) was a win. Did the product make our life easier, or did it fail us in our travels? Read on to see what we thought.

Why use it

This stroller held up during our adventure around the city. We were a bit concerned about how it would do on bumpy sidewalks and walkways given its size and weight, but we were pleasantly surprised with its sturdiness.

Now, while we loved everything about its size and portability, we did have a few areas for improvement. The first is the sun canopy. It’s fairly small and didn’t give our toddler much coverage and protection when out and about—pretty much defeating the purpose of it.

The storage basket is really small and can only carry the essentials (a wallet, wipes, some snacks, and water)—definitely not a large diaper bag or shopping bags from running errands around town. We tried hanging our normal diaper bag on one of the padded handlebars, but it really weighed down the one side of the stroller.
