Boston (PRWEB) March 14, 2016
The stroller that sparked a viral internet sensation just made its first appearance in stores.
The gb Pockit holds the Guinness World Record for the world’s smallest folding stroller. It folds down to the size of a handbag, fits under an airplane seat, weighs only 9 lbs and even comes with a sunshade and storage basket.
“When the gb Pockit made international news, parents immediately asked when they could get one,” said gb Director of Marketing Communications Jen Johnson. “Today, gb is happy to announce that the stroller is at Babies“R”Us,” she said.
Parents and parents-to-be were amazed when the gb Pockit appeared unannounced at the ABC Kids Expo, viewing a video of its incredible fold more than 13 million times. The gb Pockit went on to win the prestigious iF Gold Award from International Forum Design, among winning entries from BMW, Apple and Nike. The iF jury said it had “never seen a stroller that folded into such a compact package and yet was so quick and easy to deploy.”
“The Pockit is part of gb’s mission to provide parents with stylish and easily operated baby gear with the design of tomorrow built into today,” said Johnson. “Our inspiration is to help parents go anywhere with their children, and we can’t wait to see the adventures they’ll enjoy with the Pockit,” she said.
The gb Pockit can be used by children six months old, until they weigh 55 lbs. It is available at Babies”R”Us for $249.99: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=90221976
