At this year's Toymaster show Yogi Parmar celebrated his birthday with members of the buying group on one of the evenings usually set aside for a fancy dress event.

On the night the birthday boy was greeted by around 500 people wearing specially-made Yogi Parmar paper masks.

The next day around 80 people gathered in the Yogi masks, with Yogi, to pose for a photo (below) in front of the Majestic Hotel where the event was held.

To commemorate the event, Orchard Toys has had the photo made into a special puzzle called 'Where's Yogi?'

Simon Prest, Sales Director at Orchard Toys, recently presented Yogi with a Where’s Yogi? wooden jigsaw made from the group photo at the Toymaster headquarters.

Simon said: “Rather than present Yogi with the usual framed print of the group shot, we thought that it would be an original idea to have the photo made into a jigsaw puzzle. This was brilliantly done thanks to Wentworth Jigsaws.”
