I killed the Seagull! Crying or Very sad No 
It wasn't made in plastic. It's a white material. Probably that's plaster or quartz, or something like that.

Now i want to fix it. Suggestions? bounce bounce

Oh no! Poor seagull! affraid pale 

I'm not sure what you have in Italy, if it's the same here in the US, but for this material I would suggest "Quick Grip" - it holds like hot glue, but you can remove the bubbly mess that you can see from gluing it back together, where you can't with hot glue. Also, it's not hot! So you can touch it all you need to fix it before it dries (and you can fix it after as well!). It washes off easily with soap and water.

The other one I use is "Zap-a-Gap," it's basically just super glue. This would probably be your best option - whatever brand of super glue you can find or have at home already would be fine.

I'm sure if you're good with hot glue, and won't get it to show, it would work well.

I hope you can fix the poor seagull! Crying or Very sad :)

Glued.
The lines are due to the glue Razz
I'll clean it in some days. When it will be perfectly dry. :)

I can barely tell it's glued! Very Happy cheers  If you're really bothered by it, try a little paint to cover it up a bit. What kind of glue did you use? Just curious. :)
