GB Pockit Stroller Review


This year, I was lucky enough to be able to go to ABC Kids Expo where I saw a lot of amazing new strollers.

One of the strollers that blew me away was the GB Pockit. Since this stroller is not out yet and I can’t do a full review on it, I decided to give you a small overview with as much information as I could get so far.

The new GB Pockit model is the most compact stroller in the world. In fact, it has been named the ‘world’s smallest folding stroller’ by the Guinness World Records. How cool is that? Its folded dimensions are only 12″ x 14″ x 7″. Tiny!

Weighing only 9 lbs, this model is perfect for traveling and public transit. It will easily fit into the overhead compartment of the train or the plane. It can be taken as a carry-on on ANY airline because its folded size is much smaller than the maximum carry-on size. I think that Mountain Buggy Nano, Babyzen Yoyo 6+, and GB Qbit have serious competition now. 

Since there is no recline, you can use it from 6 months and up to 55 lbs. Very high limit for such a compact stroller. Obviously, it does NOT take a car seat, but I didn’t expect it to be for such a light model. The canopy is very small and I think could be improved. Surprisingly the basket was a decent size and very easy to access.

Another thing that I really liked was the wheels. While being only 4.5″, the wheels provide a pretty smooth ride and the stroller felt very stable and sturdy.  Overall I was very impressed with this stroller.

It offered a lot of great features while being so compact and light. This model comes in six colors and retails for around $199.

The canopy is tiny and not going to provide much shade. It would be a great idea for GB to make a removable canopy with a large sunvisor. That way, it wouldn’t affect the compactness of the fold while providing good sun protection.



It has interesting handlebars that are looking more outward and forward than usual. They are covered with nice soft foam. As you probably have guessed they are not adjustable. They are located 39″ from the ground which is an average height for non-adjustable handlebars.


The seat is very roomy and since the canopy is almost non-existent, you can fit in a very tall child. The seat is 11″ wide with a 21″ seat back and a measurement of 25″ from the back of the seat to the top of the canopy. Because there is no recline, you can use the seat from 6 months and up to 55 lbs.



There is an adjustable padded 5-point harness with a center release buckle in the middle and a crotch padding.



The basket is a really good size for such a compact stroller. You can probably fit your medium size diaper bag. You can easily access it from the back and it can hold up to 11 lbs!



There is a one-step brake located on the right rear wheel that will lock both of the rear wheels in place. It’s not flip-flop-friendly. I really like that they’ve made all of the action pieces like brake, folding buttons, and front wheel locks white color so they stand out. This reminds me of a Bugaboo design where all of the action pieces are also white.



It rolls on 4.5″ EVA wheels with swivel front wheels that can be locked straight. These wheels are designed for flat surfaces and not going to handle rough terrain that well.



The fold is super compact. You can almost put it in your pocket! It will definitely fit into my large diaper bag. This is great news for traveling parents since now they will be able to take this stroller on board ANY airline.

The Pockit is way below the maximum size for the carry-on. It has folded dimensions of 12″ x 14″ x 7″. Weighing only 9 lbs, it’s very easy to carry it on your shoulder when not needed. I think my purse weighs 9 lbs. Ha!

There is no automatic lock, but there is a manual one. There is also standing fold which is probably not going to be used much since it’s just easier to hold it in your hands than bending down to the ground.


Here is me holding it without breaking a sweat.


-No recline. There is no recline so you have to use it from 6 months. This is a very basic model that doesn’t have that many features. It’s designed to get you from A to B. This model is probably best for an older baby that is already walking.

-Small canopy. The canopy is tiny! I wish it had a removable canopy with a large sunvisor. Maybe you could remove that canopy before folding the stroller and roll it into a small package that can attach to the stroller with a Velcro. That way it won’t take that much space and there will be no additional weight. Or, maybe a softer canopy that would fold like a sunvisor into the seat.  Just a thought.

-No suspension. I am not expecting the smallest stroller in the world to have a suspension, but I just want to let you know. Some umbrella strollers like Maclaren have suspension.

-No automatic lock. There is a manual lock that you can use to keep the stroller secure.

  1. It’s amazing stroller as a secondary one for travels. We took it to NZ – no problems on the plane – easy fold, and very light. Good for eveyday use, because it’s suprisingly solid. I would recommend it to everyone who travels with kids. We bought it on – they were giving free baby carrier. Stroller came after 4 days, and the carrier came after about 10 days, which we didn’t mind as long as it was free haha

  2. We saw this at babies r us and it blew me away. Such an easy fold down which is nice when you have to travel or put it in a car. I would recommend to anyone who has 1-3 year olds. This is a great product and my favorite stroller yet!
