at what age do toddlers stop needing naps?

Hi there. I have a 2 1/2 yr old boy who has been giving me a hard time with naps lately. It is really hard to get him to take them. If he wakes up past 8 am he won't take his nap and then by the time dinner comes he is a mess and cranky. Even when he wakes up unusually early (before 8:00 is unusual for him) he will fight me on naps and even though he is stuck in his room he won't go to sleep a lot of times. Today I got him to take his nap by taking eveery single book any toy out of his room so he wouldn't have anything to play with for nap time. It seems to have worked but I am just wondering if he is getting to that age where he may not need them anymore.
