Have her call his ped. That's who told me two and a half.
That's a great idea! I've seen him (unsuccessfully) try to get out of his crib on several occasions, but she hasn't, so she doesn't think there's anything to worry about. Maybe his pediatrician can give some us concrete information.
It's funny that so many people say 2.5 is a good age to switch - it just so happened that DD over the past few months has gotten very tall (38 inches now) and it got to the point where I had trouble physically lifting her into her crib. I strained my back several times trying to get her long legs over the railing. So we decided to switch literally on her 2 1/2 year birthday, and it went fine. She "helped" us set up the bed and get it ready, and other than very early waking for about 4 mornings, it was no problem at all. It was just coincidence we did it at 2 1/2 but it worked great. So I would have to agree with the other posters!
This has caught up my attention very well. I think that a child should switch up to a bed when there is a good transition available. When the child is comfortable, and when it is already good to accept changes. It would definitely take time, but it would be patience that you need to intake.

my daughter is 2.5 years old and she has been in her toddler bed for almost a month now. husband and i really don't have a choice for her transition because i am pregnant with her brother (due in May). we wanted her to be comfortable and not wait for the last moment to start the transition. she also had no interest in climbing out of her crib, and when she did wake up in her crib, she would make up stories, play with her stuffed toys or dance around. i think you are at a perfect time. good luck.
