Surely you're starting to get the idea. Simply tap into your little boy's fondest interest and have a custom children's bed maker design and build him a big boy bed inspired by that theme and he'll be naturally drawn to it, compelled to leave his crib behind in exchange for this awesome new vision of his fantasies made real.
Introducing characters into the bedroom is another choice that you have. Movies, TV shows, and famous characters can become inspirations for creating a bedroom after them. Choose your child's favorite character and design the bedroom with that character in mind. The colors and the accessories can be carefully patterned after that character. Make sure that you guide your child when he or she is in the task of choosing the character. After you have explained to them the rules that you have, you have to let them choose on their own.
If you wish, you can keep his bedding the same for a while, to give him the comforting feeling of some sort of continuity in the transition. Or you can have brand new custom bedding designed to match the theme of his big boy bed. Which option is best depends really on the child.
