Things break around here. A lot. Maybe a little more often, or a lot more often, then they break around your place. I really don’t know. Kat is the queen is destroying things. Plastic things in particular. Charging cords are the number 1 fatality with her. But little toys that Risi is in loved with despite them being cheap, or plastic framed glasses when insurance only covers one a year… those break too. Which, is damn annoying I’ve gotta say. So what can I do? Super glues only work so well. Trust me, I’ve done that for years. But you get tired of fixing things ineffectively time after time.
As the handy person around the house, I needed something better than super glue.
So… enter Bondic!
Recently, Risiel grabbed Lisi’s glasses and that snapped. Ugh. These damn plastic glasses. Why do they give these things to kids when they just break so darn easily?! Thankfully, I remembered that I’d gotten my package recently! Ohh yay! I could see if this stuff would actually work.
Risi is obsessed with the fact that my sample package came with all sorts of little repaired things along with my Bondic pen and instructions. Go figure. 😉
One thing I noticed is the smell. As someone who does nail art, I knew exactly what Bondic was just by the darn smell when I opened up the pen! Hahaha. It’s UV Acrylic. Or is it UV Resin? It smells like it could be either. They’re pretty similar in scent to me.
Yeah, I dunno why that didn’t connect with me when they told me about the product. But there ya go! So, you get the little pen full of the material, and the handy little UV light. It does set up in about 4 seconds. I usually err on the side of caution though and wait for a count of 10. Because… well… I just do. >.> Better safe than sorry for me!
Thankfully the Bondic worked very well in fixing Lisi’s glasses. I always buy a backup pair for the kids on an online site that does inexpensive glasses, so it wasn’t like she was without glasses for days on end. But it was still nice for her to have her main pair back!(that she decided she liked better than her backup pair she wanted sooo badly. Kids..)
I was thankful to see how well it also worked for repairing these little plastic motorcycles that Risiel got at Silverwood. She managed to get them apart and was so upset that they then would not stay together. Ugh. I put Bondic on any place I could easily reach with the pen tip, and set it up.
We’ve had no issues with anything breaking since then. Aside from stuff Kat has accidentally like, sat on, or dropped something heavy on. In which case… I don’t know what I can do to save things from that!
