My youngest ds would love a "Cars" themed room but I don't think I could handle it!

I voted for other. My boys (ages 9 and 2) have sock monkey/surf monkey groove in their room but even that is just limited to the bedding. The walls are navy blue with a bright lime green contrast wall and all the furnishing are neutral. I figure it is easier to accomodate any changes we make as the grow older.

Monkey. . .how can you not love a monkey? :P

I did my son's with a boat theme. It is timeless in a way.

How about no theme? Just some really nice colors that he likes and some of his favorite things.

We are re-doing our kids rooms right now and the boys are wanting dragons. I found some cool kites at Cost Plus imports that are really inexpensive.
So I put other... DRAGONS RULE!

I voted other...all of these themes/interests will be 'outdated' before you know it. Do some cool primary colors and decorate with some freamed posters of his current interests that you can interchange as they change.

Out of the options, I'd do outer space.

We just moved and did my ds's room (he's 3.5) in pirates. Sure, the way it's done, he'll likely outgrow it in a few years. We did consider that. But then I factored in the fact that he's still a preschooler and not exactly easy on his belongings, it will probably need replaced/updated anyway.

I voted other.

Come up with your own design, incorporate cars and construction without characters from the movies.

I have done a mural in dd's room with fairies and birds and butterflies and dragonflies trees and flowers.

Other- Do you really need a "theme"? Just let him pick out colors or prints that he likes and go from there. That way it'll grow with him.
