With an infant, a one-year-old and a four-year-old in tow, air travel can be a huge challenge. So, anything I can use to make the journey more bearable gets my vote.
It’s no wonder then that the GB Pockit + has become my new travel essential.
Weighing in at 4.9 kgs. and with a folding size of just 32 x 20 x 38 cm., this second-generation German-designed, stroller fits into the overhead compartment of any airplane. A two-tier folding mechanism makes it shockingly easy to fold and clip into place. You can easily carry it in one arm as you cradle your child in another.
Its older brother, the original Pockit holds an actual Guinness World Record for being the most compact stroller on the market. The new version is available in six colours and is only marginally bigger but offers additional functions, such as adapters for the addition of a GB or CYBEX car seat.
It also dons an adjustable backrest, which is convenient on the off chance you have a child that actually naps when you leave the house. Some things money can’t buy!
The Pockit+ (999 dhs) is available to buy at retailers across the UAE including DB Babies, Babyshop and Mumzworld.com.
