RE: The tariff classification of an electronic toy from China

Dear Ms. Aldinger:

In your letter dated April 24, 1995, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Item #96192, referred to as a "Wall & Door Plaque", is an electronic scarry greeter made of plastic and cloth. The article depicts the head of a creature wearing a black shroud over the back of its head. The product operates on two "AA" size batter- ies which are not included. When activated, the creature's eyes light up and a Halloween greeting is conveyed. Walking past a hidden sensor will trigger the unit into operation provided the switch is turned to the "on" position.

The applicable subheading for the electronic "Wall & Door Plaque", will be 9503.90.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other toys (except models), not having a spring mechanism. The rate of duty will be free.

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.
