In this house, we are avid lovers of Amazon Prime. I use it non-stop for my business, (you can see how I’ve featured it as a must-have: The 6 Direct Sales and Networking Tools You Should be Using Daily) and my husband uses it for just about everything else. So, when Prime day arrives, it’s pretty much a holiday for us. Ok, I’m exaggerating, but we did take advantage of it to get some items we’ve been needing, and some we will be needing in the future. This includes a new stroller. Which is how we found the Pockit Stroller.
Our stroller for the baby is actually pretty great, aside from needing to Tetris it into my trunk if we want to fit anything else in there. It’s a click-connect, so our car seat just clicks right in, and we easily can switch the baby back and forth from car to stroller. All while she is sleeping, because all we want as parents is to keep our babies sleeping. So, our stroller is great for that.
What our stroller is not as great for is, maneuvering through crowds or being carried for any length of time. (Seriously, this particular one needs to be broken down into three parts. Super handy.) Also, trying to pack the car for a trip with the whole family, and everyone’s overnight bags. Especially if we are going anywhere for more than a night.
So, we happened to be in the market for a stroller that is easily managed and fits in the trunk with other things, like, a large grocery order.
We almost forgot we were in the market for one, but luckily remembered just in time on Prime Day to score our newest favorite thing.
I mean, seriously?! He’s not even professionally trained. That’s how quickly it opens and closes, and that’s how small it gets. That’s 12″ x 7″ x 20″. Apparently it’s in the Guinness Book of World Records as the smallest folded stroller, and I imagine it’s closest to the lightest at under 11 lbs. The description on Amazon boasts that it fits in any overhead compartment and under almost any airline seat. I can’t comment on this yet, but will update when I can.
Here’s a photo or two. (Two photos)
So, you can see why we were immediately super excited. This will free up a ton of room in my trunk for traveling. (We always use my car because it is a hybrid. So, you know, gas money.)
Another reason we were so excited? I am 5’9″ and my husband is 6’3″. A regular umbrella stroller hurts our backs after an hour. This is tall enough that neither of us have to bend over to comfortably push it. We can walk as if we are pushing a full sized stroller.
The real question then is, how sturdy is it? Well, it strolled around our house super easily. The turn radius is non existent, as it turns on the spot. This will make it so incredibly easy in crowded spaces. It is solid materials and feels sturdy and well constructed.
We put the baby in it, (it is for her, after all. It may be for several months from now, but we thought we would let her feel it out.) and it holds her up in position well, and appears that it will be comfortable when she is the right size. In another point for safety, it has 5-point straps for a secure fit.
Overall, I have to highly recommend this stroller. Did I mention it has a strap connected to it for easy carrying? It’s incredibly light. I can not wait to have this with us at Disney in the Spring.
While you can’t use it for an infant the way you can a larger stroller, it is perfect for once your baby is steady sitting up on their own. If you are looking for a stroller that is easy like an umbrella stroller, tall enough that you aren’t breaking your back to push it, and way sturdier than an umbrella stroller; this is it.

**Update: We brought this with us to Disney, and it was a life saver. Both our almost 4-ft 3.5 year old and our smaller-than-most 1 year old fit in the stroller.
We were able to attach a longer strap so we could carry it like a messenger bag when not in use, and it folded up quickly every time so we could hop on teams and rides. I can not imagine using a different stroller at Disney, or at other crowded area ever again.
We did not fly there, so I don’t have a review of how it did on the plane/in the airport, but I have no problem believing that it would fit overhead as a carry on easily.
Seriously, five stars for this stroller!
