GB Pockit Review. #awesomesauce

Ummm… Hi!!!!!! It’s been a while, I know. A little something called LIFE has got in the way of my blogging. As the saying goes… Family First. I know you all can relate!  I can’t remember if I ate breakfast these days, let alone write a blog post…

I am FINALLY back and ready to get this party started…again.

So, here I am with the awesome GB Pocket stroller. The Pockit is pretty stellar for a few reasons and I will list them out for you…

  • It folds up SO SMALL it fits in one of my diaper bags. For real. I stored it in my Ju Ju Be Super Be diaper bag in my entry way closet and actually thought I LOST the darn thing because I couldn’t find it for 4 days!! Oh wait, that’s right, it’s so tiny I thought it would be cool to put it in a diaper bag for storing. Then I forgot where I put it. AH!!!! I laughed out loud when I found it because I was happy I found it. What stroller fits in diaper a bag!?!?! #thepockitdoes
  • The push is better than expected. For a stroller that’s so lightweight and features such a small footprint, it pushes surprisingly well!
  • It’s perfect for everyday use and travel! If you’ve got a small car or you bought all of IKEA, your little Pockit will still fit perfectly behind a seat in any car. Traveling? No need to gate check the Pockit,  you can just bring it with you on the plane and store it in an overhead bin! #parentingwin
  • Light weight. Although this stroller light weight and has a small frame, it’s strong as all get out! It hold sup to 55 lbs and the basket can hold up to 11 lbs. Just because something doesn’t feel heavy-duty doesn’t mean it candle handle a beating. Good things come in small packages my friend!

It’s kind of amazing how they made this stroller and the way it folds. The fold is 2 step, but it’s easy and I like doing it. I feel like I’m doing a cool magic trick in the parking lot every time I fold it.. HA! Who doesn’t like Magic?

This little gem of a stroller definitely does what it’s supposed too. I’ve gotten a lot of questions about the canopy and the lack of recline on the stroller. You need to remember this is NOT a full size stroller. It’s a lightweight everyday/travel stroller. It shouldn’t have a huge basket, flat recline, etc. If it did, it wouldn’t be called the Pockit and fold up to the size of a cell phone. Ok, over exaggerating there, maybe not a cell-phone from this day in age; maybe more like the size of Zack Morris’s’ cell-phone from Saved by the Bell. You get my point though. The lack of recline was somewhat of a concern for me because H & B still take naps in the stroller, but clearly from the photo below that was a non-issue for Brody.

Overall, I 100% recommend the GB Pockit for a travel stroller or everyday stroller. The price can be off-putting for some but what do expect from a stroller that’s made in the Guinness World Records for smallest fold. Hell, if I had been the creator of this ride I would be charging double the price! #justsayin
