  1. Amazing My First Nokona

    (Posted by John R on 28th Jan 2016)

    Absolutely perfect! Could not wait to order this glove once we found out we were having a baby. I ordered the glove 10 minutes after my daughter was born! My wife lived the glove!!!

  2. Build quality of an adult glove

    (Posted by Tom B on 2nd Dec 2015)

    I was supremely impressed with the build quality of this "My First Glove," purchased to commemorate the birth of my son. The leather, detailing, and embroidered stitching are all top-notch. Now I just have to wait until he's big enough to wear it! Well worth the wait to have it customized.

  3. Great find

    (Posted by OKC Gramma on 7th Nov 2015)

    Several months ago my husband showed me his "dream" glove; a Nokona. He plays senior baseball, so I told him it's time to stop dreaming and get it. He did. I checked out your website and came across My First Nokona by accident and was so excited because our two year old grandson was learning to play catch with one of those vinyl type of gloves that is all you can find. His birthday was coming up; what a perfect gift. I emailed Nokona to see if it could be assured to come by his birthday. Melissa told me she would put a rush on it to get it to me by my grandson's birthday. The wonderful people in the factory got it done in plenty of time and it is beautiful! It was personalized exactly the way I requested. This is going to be the best glove you will find anywhere for your toddler. My grandson is playing catch with us now and is having a great time with his new glove. This glove is quality, I am so glad to have found it to start my grandson off properly playing baseball.

    Great customer service. Really great product. Perfectly personalized! Looks like a glove, smells like a glove, feels like a glove!! Looks great next to her daddy's Nokona glove (used from little league through high school). Perfect first birthday gift for this little "Nokona" girl - our granddaughter.

  8. I made two young mothers cry (tears of joy)

    (Posted by Dave Weseman on 1st Feb 2015)

    I have a long-time fondness for the quality leathers Nokona uses in their ballgloves and Ihave bought two of them, one for (a girl) softball and one for (me) baseball which will go to some deserving young prospect someday. So when I saw "My First Nokona" I was kind of smitten with the idea. When a co-worker told me his two-year-old boy was imitating the pitchers he saw on TV during the World Series I decided to put thought into action! Now I have done it twice, two moms and four kids(two boys and two girls are very happy. And two Dads think their buddy is pretty cool.

  9. Perfect 1st Glove

    (Posted by Susan Meyer on 19th Dec 2014)

    The gloves we had ordered were outstanding! The keepsake personalization was top notch! Great way to start our grandsons off in the family baseball and softball tradition. Nakona gloves are, by far, the best out there.

  10. The best gloves in America!

    (Posted by Chuck Resnick on 16th Dec 2014)

    I have always used Nokona gloves growing up and still use one at age 63, playing baseball in the MSBL. I have also purchased several Nokona’s for my daughter growing up, including her time playing collegiate softball. So, it seemed natural for me to continue our Nokona family tradition and order a “My First Nokona” glove for my granddaughter. It is GREAT. While a little expensive, it is well worth the money and is an exact replica of the real golve, just smaller. I will be purchasing another one real soon for my new grandson!
