Pair find it really can be child's play.

THE world of play is helping an entrepreneurial North East duo climb the ladder of business success.

Infinite Edge was set up by Helen Law and Sam McGeever in Newcastle two years ago after they saw a gap in the market for more creative play spaces for young children.

The parks take their inspiration from children's story books and TV shows and come complete with their own stream, climbable trees, colourful padded areas and little hills.

The duo are currently putting the finishing touches to a park at St Joseph's RCVA Primary School at Wallsend Road, North Shields, and said that they are confident of growing the business despite the imminent cuts to education spending.

And to develop the business further they have started to sell den-making kits and arts and crafts packages and lead creative workshops for children.

Mrs Law has a background in theatre prop and set management, with a spell at Northern Stage in Newcastle, while Mr McGeever is a freelance artist and designer and previously worked as the lead artist for Stanwick Lakes Country Park in Northamptonshire.
