I love traveling with my kids. There’s nothing like watching them discover and learn about new places and things and the impact that experience makes on our family. Every adventure we embark on is a new memory and it’s important that we take every chance to create those memories. Of course that’s not to say traveling with little ones isn’t trying at times, especially with all the gear you have to pack and lug around for them to be comfortable.
Thankfully we have a gb Pockit stroller which makes our on the go, spontaneous adventures much more manageable! The gb Pockit stroller is the first of it’s kind in that it can fold down to the size of a handbag! It’s lightweight yet sturdy build and compact size make it ideal for any traveling family and will fit children up to 55lbs. The gb Pockit stroller can easily be found at your local Babies ‘R’ Us or online on their website for $249.99.

They had me at “No Assembly Required “! Of course being the record breaker for smallest folding stroller doesn’t hurt either. 🙂 Excited to test out the new, gb Pockit stroller from @gbglobalofficial as we travel to @seaworldtexas this weekend! #IC #FamilyAdventure #FamilyTravel #gbFuturePerfect #gbPockit #ad #baby #babygear
The gb Pockit stroller is certainly a traveling parent’s best friend and designed with family adventures in mind. While using it on our own adventures, I’ve come to love a few major features of the stroller.
1 – Compact fold
When they say it’s compact they aren’t kidding, the gb Pockit offers a two-step folding technique that takes the stroller from push size to purse size. There are two folded positions, one that is self-standing and the most compact with the wheels folded in which lets you fit it easily in a large diaper bag. For me, the standing position is the easiest to put it down in. I’ve had a little trouble getting the wheels to fold right for the smallest fold but it just takes a little practice.
2 – Easy navigation
The gb Pockit’s double front swivel wheels are ideal for creating a smooth riding and pushing experience. I absolutely love how the stroller basically glides over any surface and the braking system works great. Turns are no issue and the front wheels are lockable giving you added stability on harder terrain. It’s so nice to not be left fighting with the stroller when trying to get it to go certain directions because the wheels get stuck.
3 – Adjustable harness
I really like that the harness on the stroller is adjustable and super easy to click in and out. Plus, it includes shoulder pads so baby doesn’t have to worry about feeling the straps.
4 – Super light and durable
Weighing in at only 9 lbs, the gb Pockit is definitely easy to tote around, not to mention it’s made from durable materials that give it a strong and sturdy frame. This allows the stroller to withstand harder terrain and other obstacles your travels may encounter.
5 – Stroller has a basket
Unlike most compact travel strollers, the gb Pockit features a small basket under the stroller that’s just big enough for a large wipes holder some diapers and a small purse or some toys. This is great considering most lightweight travel strollers do not have this option.
6 – Baby is comfy
The set of the gb Pockit is made of a stretchy, breathable material which gave my baby a very comfy seat. She seemed to love sitting and being strolled in it which to me, is the biggest win of all!
Wished for features
With the gb Pockit made for get out and go endeavors, it does leave a few things on my stroller wish list.
1 – Does not recline
Like most umbrella and lightweight strollers, the gb Pockit doesn’t recline. It would be nice if even a small recline option was available.
2 – Small sunshade
With the angle the seat is at, the sunshade only covers about 50% of my baby’s body, it would be nice if it would be able to cover the legs a nit more
3 – No cup holder/pocket
Although I understand it’s a travel stroller, I feel a fabric cup holder on the back of the stroller would be a major help.
4 – Seat area is a bit short
One of the things I noticed was that the seat area of the stroller seemed a bit short, so if you have a larger baby, they may not fit in it for too long. I feel if this were extended just a bit it would give the owner a little more use out it.
Great ride for any traveling family
When it comes to family adventures, we are always on the go with our kids. The gb Pockit stroller has certainly made a difference with us and given us the option to explore new things without the worry of not having a stroller for the right occasion. Whether your flying across country or just visiting you local aquarium, the gb Pockit stroller is a great choice for adventurous families everywhere!
