You probably know there’s a new Jurassic World coming out this year, and there’s lots of branded merchandise coming along with it. At the Toy Fair this weekend, Mattel introduced a bunch of Jurassic products, including the “Pterano-Drone,” a quadcopter with a dinosaur on top.

It works just like any other drone with a hand-held remote control, although it includes additional kid-friendly features like self-landing and auto-circling. It also automatically shuts off if kids try to grab the motors by squeezing its plastic case. The drone should last 15 to 20 minutes in the air and charges through Micro USB. It doesn’t pair with any companion app.

The Pterano-Drone will cost $119.99 when it’s released this spring, closer to the new movie’s release date.
