What is a good age for the "big boy" room?

I was thinking about this, and barring necessity, like a new baby who needs the crib and the baby bedding...what is a good age for the child room "re-design", converting to toddler bed or twin bed and updating the room for the older child? (Figure between ages 2-5)

  • We took DS out of his crib and into a toddler bed when he started trying to flip over the side, figured climbing out of bed all night was better than flipping out and landing on his head. For him that was about 18 months, when it's time you'll know.

  • He will start to have favorite TV shows, or show a special interest in something, cars, firetrucks, cowboys, football, etc.

    (We're doing his room in OU stuff when he gets into sports... probably about 3 or so..)
