Ponal holds really well for structures. Expensive though. For anything smaller or flimsier I use a glue gun.

Elmer's school glue is fine Ponal is great for heavier items.

PVA is ok for some things it's just not always strong enough.
Like Serendipity I use Ponal for things that need a stronger glue that's safe.

You want to be careful with hot glue as if it’s eaten it’ll cause a blockage unlike other types of glue. Generally most hot glue is non toxic so technically safe (but check label!) but be careful and make sure no glue shows if you do use it.
