You only want the best for your children. This starts with their first stroller. You want it to be safe, convenient, and easy to assemble. You want to be able to buy it without taking out another mortgage. Your child’s comfort and safety in a stroller is paramount. That’s where the GB Pockit Lightweight and Plus come in. Below are our GB Pockit Stroller reviews. Let’s take a look at them.
The GB Pockit Lightweight stroller is the original compact stroller. It is officially the world’s smallest folding stroller, according to the Guinness World Records of 2014.
When folded, it is the most compact stroller currently on the market. It only takes two steps to fold this bite-sized stroller. When folded, it is about the size of your average handbag – and it weighs 12 pounds.
This is the perfect stroller if you’re a busy parent who finds themselves often on the move. When you do stop for a break, the GB Pockit Lightweight is practical and easy to store.
The weight of a stroller isn’t the only thing you have to consider. That’s why the GB Pockit Lightweight comes with a sun canopy and padded, adjustable harness system to accommodate your growing child.
While it has swiveling wheels on the front, these can be locked for safety. This is an essential feature because you want the ride to be as smooth as possible. Even if you live in the city, there is a high chance of uneven pavement and sudden, sharp turns.
This stroller is the perfect option when growing a young family and focusing on saving space.
This GB Pockit Plus takes a growing family into account. This means that it understands the reality of your child going through different developmental stages.
This edition of the GB Pockit is even more lightweight than its former version, with additional features. It is a travel system that accommodates for a newborn capsule with optional adaptors that can click on a compatible GB car seat.
Because it is designed differently to the original Pockit, this model offers two folding options. You can either quickly fold it if you’re in a hurry and just need it to be able to stand it somewhere. Alternatively, you can choose the folding option that requires one further step to transform the stroller into the size of a handbag.
The advantage of this edition is that you can use it with your child from birth. Because it allows for a compatible capsule to be attached, the GB Pockit Plus is the perfect way to walk around the city with your child, whatever stage they’re at.
Now that you’ve learned about the latest addition to the GB Pockit family, let’s see how the two models are different:
Pish Posh Blog explains that the newer GB Pockit Plus has some advantages over the original model that makes it more convenient for your growing family.
As well as being compatible with a GB newborn capsule, the Pockit Plus has a baby seat that can recline. This is essential if you’re going to use this stroller from birth.
Once your baby can sit, you’ll want to get them out of the capsule and into the baby seat. Having a stroller seat that reclines means you’ll still be able to allow for naps and diapers that need changing on the go.
Another great addition to the GB Pockit Plus is the sun canopy. It’s a lot smaller on the Pockit Lightweight model, which puts your infant at risk of being exposed. The more extensive sun canopy on this model also offers SPF 50+ sun protection, so you know that your child is safe.
The GB Pockit Plus has more room than the original GB Pockit stroller – but this doesn’t mean it’s still not compact. This hasn’t compromised its ability to be folded up and stored just about anywhere.
The perfect stroller requires comfort, safety, and convenience. Some strollers might be sturdy and safe but pose a storage problem.
Enjoy adventurous walks in the city without having to break a sweat with this effortlessly lightweight stroller.
