Still putting stuff in their mouth?

How old were your kids when they stopped putting random things in their mouths?

I am a little concerned for my almost five year old...he still puts random things in his mouth...like today he bit down on a glow stick so hard it broke open...I had to call poision control and thankfully it wasnt poisonous. 

He also licked a Gain Pod for laundry once....he ate a piece of soap about a week ago.. 

Is something wrong with him? :(

My 4 yr old was chewing a berry she saw hanging from a tree.  She freaked me out, thank goodness poison control said one berry wouldn't do much.  She also licked a tree trunk.  She has gotten better than when she was younger, I'm hoping she will have great judgement by 6.

Just last night I caught my almost 8 year old rolling a magnent around in his mouth. My almost 4 year old still puts everything in his mouth. I am constantly saying if it is not food or a toothbrush it does not belong in your mouth.
