Depends.  If you have cats or brats...a.k.a., destructive forces...roaming about, and you wouldn't consider your polytropolis to be 'collectable'......I'd try moo-glue: Elmers.   It'll help the structures to withstand some tremors, invasions of evil-doers, and bumps in the night.

Also, there's Plasticville, and then there's Plasticville.  IOW, they're still making the stuff.  Newer P-ville is not of the same polymer, hardly considered "collectible".  If you have older, bought-new-been-in-the-family-since-God-knows-when P-ville that still has marks of sentimentality...like spray-on 'snow', chipped corners, hot bulb warpage, candy-cane residue from sticky 'ittle fingers, etc., etc....then moo-glue would be my choice, anyway.

If you're a military family, I'd probably forget the glue....you're probably going to have to pack up and move...again.

While not about To Glue or Not To Glue, the title of this thread is pretty generic.

Here is a Plasticville question: A friend of mine called and said that he picked up a "rare" yellow walled Plasticville Cape Cod. I don't know about how "rare" this is as I've had one on Warrenville for many years.

Not counting "modern" Plasticville (where I've seen these with blue walls), did they make Cape Cods in any colors other than white and yellow (grey for the "House under construction)? How "rare" is the yellow walled version?

I've seen red roof issues with red windows & doors, brown roof issues with white windows & doors and brown roof issues with white windows & doors. Modern issues with a light tan roof and white windows & doors and brown roof issues with light tan windows & doors.

Sorry for geeking out here, but I'm curious as to what is out there.

I found other variations:

White with green roof, windows & doors, white with light blue roof, windows & doors, white with green windows & doors, peach with white windows & doors, peach chimney, turquoise with roof &brown windows &doors, white with dark blue roof, windows & doors and white with brown roof and yellow windows & doors.

Anybody  here collect these variations?

Thanks for the info CArolina Shagger, I'll check it out.

I don't usually geekout about things like this but I find the Cape Cods interesting - I guess they remind me of the housing boom right after WW2. I'm thinking Levittown here in NY.

Here are two truly one of a kind enlarged Plasticville Cape Cods I made. Yes, I glued them (LOL).

Beautiful Cape Cod's John, you 'made improvements' just as many homeowners in Levittown adapted to growing families, new cars, or the neighbor Jones.  Next up could be dormer's.  BTW, I have painted my Plasticville several times over the decades, and they are all glued too.  I think I will follow your lead next time I get into bashing.  Thanks for sharing. Chuck
