Monsters for 4th graders?

Hi. I've used a Monster theme for the past two years with 4th graders. I never get a clear pic. of whether they like it or not and my room is not immersed with the monster theme. Students make their own monster and use it to keep track of their AR points. The welcome board is monsters. I give out monster bookmarks and read books/poetry about monsters at the beginning of the year.

Every summer I second guess the theme because I'm worried it may be too juvenile for 4th graders. I love monsters and think crazy monsters are so imaginative. Monster can look like anything you want and are colorful!

So, PTers...should I move on to a new, "older" theme this year? I want my students to enjoy our room and feel comfortable and not babied, but I want to have fun!
