Most plastic toys will break sooner or later. Although you might be tempted to just throw the broken toys in the trash bin I suggest you read about my “drill and cable tie” technique.
First off you need to drill the hole to pass the cable tie through. Pick a drill size just a bit bigger than the width of the cable tie. Drill straight through in the same place as the, now broken, snap fastener. Push the cable tie through and fasten it firmly. Cut the unnecessary length with a nipper and you’re done! Now you understand why you need more different colors of cable ties than just the plain black. The great thing about this technique is that the fixed toy is even sturdier than the original one, thus you might want to do this even if the toy is not broken – just as a precaution.
Smaller toys might need to be only glued. The tale wing on this helicopter was broken, super glue fixed the problem.
