How old is too old for a toddler bed

Just looking for opinions. What age do you think is too old for a toddler bed with the crib mattress?

Whenever they exceed the weight on the bed or outgrow the length.

Yup I think this has more to do with it than age.

Re: How old is too old for a toddler bed

My dd is 3.5 and still has plenty of room. She didn't start sleeping in it until she was nearly 3 (cosleeping), so I'm glad to get at least some use out of it!

My DD is 3 and sleeps in one fine. But my 5 yr old is too tall.

My 6 year old is still in his Ikea toddler bed (Kritter). He has PLENTY of room . The mattress length is 63 inches and he is 46 inches, so I think weight or length is what one should go by.
