My take:  Now my kids aren’t Family Guy fans but don’t worry, these were passed onto some older boys who I know will be thrilled to receive them.  I let my boys pick from the remaining items which to build first and they both immediately chose Plants vs. Zombies Wild West Skirmish Building Set.  Here is a picture of all the pieces that were included:

Now I will tell you that before working with K’NEX products, I wasn’t really such a big fan of assembling small pieces but the big clear instructions make it very easy for this mom to help build.  My youngest son and I spent a very pleasurable hour putting this set together.  The only problems we ran into were the Zombie men.  No matter how hard we tried we could only get one Zombie to stand up straight so we improvised and had the other two sitting down which worked great.

Both of the boys enjoy trying to knock the zombies off their platforms and have even hit a moving target quite a few times.  Great fun for a summer afternoon!
