Miracle Glue will repair most toys. You can glue hard plastics. Action figures. Lego. Dolls – all kinds of dolls! Diecast cars, planes, trains and other play toys bond together very well with Miracle Glue. It won’t melt the plastics as there is no solvent in Miracle Glue and it won’t discolor as Miracle Glue dries clear. Any kind of wooden toy can be repaired easily with Miracle Glue. If the wood is unfinished – very porous, moisten with water and you’ll find that you’ll need much less glue and the bond will be much stronger.
Pewter statues and toys like this will also bond extremely well.
Using super glue or Krazy Glue on vinyls, plastics and foams doesn’t work very well as these two types of glue contain solvents which make the glue crystallize, get brittle and discolor. Additionally, it will melt foams like Styrofoam and neoprene. Miracle glue is safe on all of these things as it contains not solvents. But the really nice thing is that Miracle Glue has a much longer shelf life than Superglue or Krazy Glue. It has a three year shelf life if kept in the refrigerator.
Outdoor swimming toys that are made from vinyl – swimming pools and floats can be mended – Miracle Glue works very quickly with these materials and it remains flexible.
The soft plastic toys such as some trucks that are made from polyethylene cannot be repaired with Miracle Glue. In fact I don’t think there are any glues that will actually glue polyethylene. (Same stuff as Tupperware or a plastic gas tank.) I’ve been asked also if Miracle Glue will repair Briar horses. Not well. I believe there are two different kinds of materials – plastics that they are made of and one seems to be OK and the other not so well. They are made from pretty slick plastic so once repaired you probably aren’t going to be able to play with them. Just put them on a shelf and leave them there.
We are also now carrying Miracle Glue Un-Cure. It is also very effective in cleaning up Miracle Glue, Super Glue and Krazy glue. It can also be used if you made a mistake and need to get something apart. It is safer to use on plastics as there is no solvents. Acetone will damage/melt plastics.
