My three year old son has a very active imagination. He has "pet" komodo dragons, lizards, butterflies, spiders, tons of bugs basically. Tonight I put him in bed, and he was out for a few hours, and I hear him talking. So I walk up stairs and before I get to his room I hear him say something about a black gun. I went in and asked him who he was talking to. He said Lightning McQueen. He has a Cars tent in his room, and he was sitting straight up in bed with his back to the wall facing Lightning McQueen and talking to the tent. Sometimes he wakes up and see's "monsters" and I make him beat the monsters up. One of his favorite movies is Monsters Inc.
My question is... Does he have a super over active imagination, or is this normal for his age? It kind of creeped me out tonight.

My oldest had 2 imaginary friends. "Little Hannah" and "Pawney". Her name is Hannah, so I thought "Little Hannah" was cute. I think "Pawney" was a boy a couple of years older than her. My youngest is now 4 and has not had any pretend friends. She is very literal.
