The Ultra-Compact Stroller for the City Traveller!
Do you have a passion for city travel and exploring? The GB Pockit Stroller recognised in 2014 by the Guinness World Records as the most compact stroller will meet all your city travel needs without a problem.
It is the smallest and most compact stroller on the market when folded – 11.8 x 7 x 13.8inches to be precise; how compact can it be again? The stroller folds up into a compact, feather-light, handbag shape which makes you switch from pushing to carrying in seconds.
The GB Pockit Stroller is ideal for trips by train, plane or simply visiting your favourite cafes. It is perfect for when you are on the move, and practical and easy to stow away when you’re not. It even fits into any plane or train overhead compartment. It is easy to push and steer easily with one hand.
This stroller is incredibly small and light, yet, holds a child up to 55pounds, so you know this is one sturdy stroller. The convenient storage basket holds up to 11pounds of gear. This stroller meets the city hopper’s needs in many ways and some.

The GB Pockit Stroller is a small, lightweight stroller that meets all your basic stroller needs including safety and comfort.
The first and mind-blowing feature about this stroller is its compactness and weight. We are yet to see a stroller that beats this feature. The height-adjustable safety harness with protective comfort shoulder and bottom pads make it comfortable for your baby. It is easy to manoeuvre with its front swivel wheel and can be pushed by multiple height users. The stroller folds up into a compact, feather-light, handbag shaped package in only two steps. We also like that there is a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty.
We Don’t Like
As great and breathtaking as this stroller is, we are disappointed that the seat does not recline and no parent console for this one but we will pick this stroller over many others for several reasons.
Children or babies learn to mimic the vibration of the adults who surround them long before they learn to mimic their words.
