RE: The tariff classification of a toy glove from China

Dear Mr. Marshak:

In your letter dated December 3, 1992, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of your client Integ Inc.

A sample of the "Vrrroom Sound Glove" was submitted with your inquiry.
The glove, made of textile material, has cut off fingers and a permanently attached sound unit on top of the hand. A hook and loop fastener is located at the wrist permitting adjustment for size. The sound unit requires batteries which will not be sold with the glove. The product is intended to be worn by a child while riding his/her bicycle or tricycle. Wearing the glove, a child activates the sound by moving his wrist downward or upward to produce sounds of acceleration or screeching brakes. The item enables a child to pretend that they are driving a "real" vehicle. A single glove, with sound unit attached, will be sold in a blister package. Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the "Vrrroom Sound Glove" will be 9503.90.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other toys (except models), not having a spring mechanism. The duty rate will be 6.8 percent ad valorem.

Section 304 of the Tariff Act of 1930 as amended, states that all articles entering the commerce of the United States must be marked with the country of origin as permanently and conspicuously as the article will permit. Please ensure that these requirements are met.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
