We’ve posted about a few innovative items invented to make the lives of travelers that much easier. There’s been the carry-on bag that doubles as a stroller, the luggage that you can ride on, the world’s best travel jacket, and even what might be the most perfect carry-on ever. But this, I think, has the potential to make the life of traveling parents the easiest yet!
Goodbaby International has been creating stroller, travel systems, car seats, and baby home gear for over 25 years, and this is, I think, the most innovative thing they’ve ever done. It’s called The Pockit.
The Pockit is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s most compact stroller. When folded, it’s the smallest stroller available on the market, at just 11.8″ x 7″ x 13.8″ (38 x 19 x 33 cm) and 9.5 pounds (20 kg). That means it can fit in a carry on bag, knapsack, a shoulder bag, or you can just pop it straight into the overhead compartment.
For parents who want to travel with their kids, be it to another country or just to the mall, it could make switching from “using a stroller” to “not using a stroller” that much easier. And you don’t have to gate check the Pockit on a plane if it fits into your carry on, right?
Although light, The Pockit is strong and can hold a child up to 55 pounds. The storage basket on the bottom can hold up to 11 pounds of gear, on top (well, on bottom) of that!

We have this and it’s been to Alaska, England, Switzerland, you get the picture and we always get comments, we love it, our son love it, BEST INVENTION EVER!!!
We have this stroller. It’s as amazing as advertised in its compact footprint. On the other hand, it’s not terribly durable and not good for off-roading. It has become a little harder to fold over time (though still not so hard as to even think about buying something different). We’ve had it in 10 different countries this year alone and it has served us well overall. Definitely doesn’t become our everyday stroller at home because you can’t really hang anything on it nor fit much in the bottom, but it’s perfect for travel and frequently gets amazed looks and comments from parents beyond the stroller stage who lament that there was nothing like this when their kids were young.
I bought mine from Amazon has “Used – Like New (damaged packaging)” and it came with the tags and absolutely like new. Saved a nice chunk over the going price on that.
