A new event business is taking Launceston toddlers by storm with the freedom of unstructured play.
It's Toddler Time founder Natalie Jones said her son had been the inspiration behind starting the unstructured play events.
"My son Tucker is really active and we struggled going to other events. He has a lot of trouble sitting down and following tasks and the rules, that sort of structured environment he really struggled with," she said.
Ms Jones wanted to make an environment that would cater for her son's needs, and that is when It's Toddler Time was born.

The founder put a post on Facebook explaining her idea, and she had many people reach out to her to say they would support the events.
"There was a big gap and something missing within the community," Ms Jones said.
"I thought I was the minority when I was the majority."
It's Toddler Time is completely unstructured play, so children do not have to do any activities they do not want to or follow a set schedule.
"It is probably a bit loud and fun, like you're walking into a little bit of chaos, but that's the point," Ms Jones said.
"[This is for] the kids that are a bit much for other events."
The first It's Toddler Time event was held on June 8, and was dance party themed.
Ms Jones said the event received an incredible turnout, with a line up the street.
"It was an absolute hit. The hall was full and there were so many excited kids," she said.
"It was made for them. They came in running and ready to dance and it was just so fun."
For the mother side of Ms Jones, it was a great moment to see a space where her child felt free to do what he liked.
"Tucker fit in straight away, and I found there is obviously a lot of mums who felt they couldn't take their child anywhere else," she said.
"He was just in his element and got to run wild with like-minded children."
It's Toddler Time is held weekly at St Catherine's Hall, in Norwood. The weekly session changes each week to cater for the different working days of parents. Each session runs for an hour.
No sign-up is required to attend, but entry is $5. All of the money goes back into the event.
The event will grow as the months become warmer to incorporate more outside activities such as picnics and parks.
The founder also highlighted the events were not just for loud children, but also quiet ones who have trouble getting involved in playtime.
"There is something for everyone," Ms Jones said.
It's Toddler Time is recommended for ages 1-4, but other ages are welcome. To stay up-to-date with when events are being held, follow the Facebook or Instagram page by the same name.
The event is also looking for more volunteers to help out.
