Repair handle on bounce horse Answered

I am needing to repair the handle of this children's bouncing horse.  I don't know if the handle is original but it is the one that came with it.  I need advice on how to attach the handle.

i agree with moem. Fiberglass + resin will do the prettiest strong job. If you want quick, a pvc flange may suffice.

One could even embed a steel ring in the resin to reduce wear.

I would use fiberglass mats and polyesther resin to fill up the hole in the horse's head, and enclose the handle in that. I'd use a lot of layers to make it sturdy because it looks like that spot gets a lot of wear and tear.

If you paint over it afterwards, doing your best to match the colours, it will look nice.

Maybe you did while trying but here is nothing to see.
All you need is to copy the link to the image into the text here and hit enter.

Any pics of it to upload so we can see what you have? Wood, plastic or metal?
