Mattel will soon be releasing Jurassic World-themed robotic dinosaurs. Available for purchase this spring, “Blue” the velociraptor and the new Indoraptor are the latest high-tech toys that teach kids STEM while they play.

After assembling the plastic pieces into their dinosaur of choice, users simply download the free Kamigami Jurassic World mobile app to choose their bot’s eye color and sounds as well as program its movements by dragging and dropping code, making it dance, run, play tag and even battle other robots.

Mattel will also sell a Pterano-Drone, a flying toy modeled on the Pteranodon from Jurassic World. Priced at $60 for the bots and $120 for the drone, these learning toys are intended to expose kids to the logic rather than the technicalities of STEM in an enjoyable way.
