Training Blue takes time and patience. But as you level up, you and Blue can interact more. This manual shows you how to teach Blue to move and turn in different directions, spin, roar, and eventually attack on command! Unlock more features and actions as your training skills improve, and check out Owen’s Tips for special hints and tricks. 


How do I get started?

Before first use, you must charge Blue with the included 6.6V charger and charge the controller with the included USB cable. You should also check for an update by plugging Blue into your computer and following the on-screen directions that appear. Note: Blue’s micro USB port is for updates only; it is not a charger.

Where can I use Blue?

Blue is an indoor dinosaur. Make sure to operate her on smooth surfaces—she is not intended for use on carpeting. Do not take Blue outside, operate her in water, or leave her near heat or in direct sunlight. If Blue does get wet, wipe her with a towel and allow to dry completely overnight.

Blue is charged, but not responding. Why not?

Blue listens for clicker commands and will look in the direction of the sounds she hears. If Blue isn’t responding to you, make sure you’re within 3 feet (1 meter) of her microphones and that she is not in motion or making a sound.

I’m within 3 feet, but Blue still won’t respond. What’s wrong?

Make sure the controller and Blue are both turned on and charged. Check and see that the battery cover is closed and secured with a Phillips head screwdriver. When Blue starts to lose power, she may lose functionality or performance. If Blue’s batteries get too low, she will automatically turn off. Radio interference can also affect Blue’s performance, including other Wi-Fi or Bluetooth sources.

What are Blue’s different modes?

In GUARD mode, all of Blue’s sensors are engaged and the controller will vibrate if Blue detects movement within 6 inches to 1 foot. You can then use the controller to move her to react to the intruder. In TRAINING mode, you work to level up so that you can expand your interactions with Blue. In TOTAL CONTROL mode, you can direct all of Blue’s movements. In PROWL mode, you can use the joystick on the top of the controller to walk Blue around.

Blue isn’t following my commands. Why not?

During the training process, you will experience successes and failures. When you are training Blue effectively, the controller will flash green and vibrate. If she doesn’t understand your commands, the controller will flash red and vibrate. Keep trying! If you don’t pay attention to Blue, she will go into sleep mode. To restart her, you can touch either of her head sensors.

I’ve tried everything and still can’t get Blue to respond. Help!

We’ve perfected de-extinction—but sometimes things go wrong. If this doesn’t work, you may need to do a factory reset. See the Trainer’s Manual to learn how to do this.
