Toys get broken. But do to worry because many can be easily repaired.
I didn't want to use the store bought glue that has poisonous chemicals to fix my son's toys especially when he is still putting a lot of his toys in his mouth. For his safety, I was looking for something in the pantry and here is what I did.
What you need:
- 1 tablespoon of white vinegar
- 1 teaspoon of gelatin (I used Knox Original Unflavored Gelatin)
Before you start, clean and dry the surfaces to be bonded. Boil vinegar in a saucepan. Once it starts bubbling, turn off the heat. Add gelatin, then stir until it's dissolved.
Apply a thin coat to each surface. Wait about a minute before mating surfaces. Let it dry before your child plays with it again.
I used this homemade gelatin glue on several toys by now and they all are holding up just fine. I completely recommend this method to fix baby toys!
