This post was sponsored by @GBChildUsa as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received the gb Pockit Stroller to facilitate my review.
I’ve got two very active little guys (ages four & three) and my hands are full at all times. Being a photographer, lugging kids and gear and big bulky strollers is not always ideal. That’s why I jumped at the chance to get my hands on the gb Pockit Stroller!
I will often take my kids out and about here and there for fun & for photo ops. Who am I kidding… every excursion of ours is a photo op! Albiet they are getting older, it is still much easier to go with at least one stroller in case someone gets tired or needs to be otherwise contained.
That said, lugging our big ol’ full size stroller can get to be a bit much. Especially when it’s just me, my kids and my camera gear.
Well enter the gb Pockit Stroller. This stroller is unlike anything you’ve ever seen! It’s extremely lightweight at 9.5lbs. (that’s less than my cat weighs you guys) and folds up ridiculously small and compact. I’m in love. This makes outings so much easier!! I can actually fit this stroller into my tote bag if I need to. I mean really, think about that for a minute.
Just look at how much space it [doesn’t] take up in the back of our car. Half the reason we bought this huge vehicle, despite needing to be able to transport five kids, was to be able to also take along our big full size stroller. Um hello! There’s actually room for luggage now on vacation!
I’ve been using this stroller non-stop since we received it. It makes quick trips to the store super easy. I would rather fold this up and lug this stroller any day over our full size one. It’s honestly even more compact and easier to deal with than a traditional umbrella stroller. It collapses as easily as it unfolds.
I mean look at how compact it is when folded.
We recently put our gb Pockit Stroller to the test on a day trip into Boston. I am happy to report it lived up to all my expectations. I was even pleasantly surprised at how much the little basket underneath could hold. For a small stroller I didn’t have high hopes and lets face it, we live for that little basket underneath the strollers right Mom? It’s never going to hold the whole diaper bag but at one point we had three water bottles, a couple diapers and at least two of kids’ sweatshirts stuffed in there.
The stroller handled the city like a charm.
I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to own this stroller! As the kids have gotten older they want to walk all the time but you know that’s not how it actually goes down. I would sometimes forgo the stroller when I knew I really shouldn’t just because I didn’t want to deal with extra time and bulkiness of it all. Now I just grab my gb Pockit Stroller and go. It’s such a relief to have it around whenever someone needs a ride.
Hubby says we should plan a trip just to try it out. Can you imagine how much easier air travel would be with a stroller that you don’t need to gate check? I think I hear vacation calling! This thing would fit in the overhead bins or under your seat. It’s like a dream come true.
My only complaint is that I didn’t have this stroller like three years ago!
The gb Pockit Stroller is available now at Babies ‘R’ Us!
