Visitors to an event in Toa Payoh Central could be forgiven for wanting an early night, as it features a mega-sized children's bedroom.

Retiree Leong Fong Mei, 66, and her seven-year-old grandson Aegen Chiang were among those who admired a giant patchwork blanket covering a 7m-by-5m bed at the Whimsical Arts Wonderland outdoor installation on Sunday.

It forms part of this year's PassionArts Festival 2018 - a nine-week nationwide community arts event.

The event was launched by Senior Minister of State for Education and Trade and Industry Chee Hong Tat.

The blanket, part of a Bedtime Stories exhibit, was stitched together by 1,000 residents. The exhibition will be open to the public until Saturday.
