The Descender is a skateboard deck mounted on four tracks of banded wheels that look like those on the bottom of an army tank. If you've ever watched your child (undoubtedly while shaking your head in disbelief) try to ride their skateboard across the grass, this may be product for them. Its sturdy wheels are clad in heavy-duty, tank-like tread that allow it to navigate nearly any terrain from grass to gravel alike. In a world where it seems that children are constantly bombarded by products that encourage them to exercise only their fingers and thumbs, it is always nice to see a toy that gets kids excited about active outdoor play.
