A TWO-YEAR-OLD is proving she has what it takes to become a top saleswoman.

Single parent Tanya Uernlianin has been taking her daughter Belle to work with her since opening her business, ABC Babi, in Redcar.

The shop is an expansion from her home-based idea of selling washable nappies, adding hand-made wooden toys, organic baby food, bedding, bean chairs and special occasion cakes and Belle has a real role to play.

Tanya said: "I would rather bring her with me and she's a super salesman - a real charmer."

The business was helped by the West Redcar Single Regeneration Budget's enterprise development worker, Adrian Beadnell.

The shop was opened yesterday by Redcar and Cleveland council's Mayor, Councillor Vilma Collins.
