RE: The tariff classification of costume headbands from Taiwan

Dear Ms. Balice:

In your letter dated December 20, 1995, received in this office on December 27, 1995, you requested a tariff classifi-cation ruling.

Two samples were submitted with your inquiry. Style #73629 is for a "Shamrock Headband" which consists of a plastic headband with two spring antennae attached. Affixed to the top of each antenna is a glittering, green, shamrock. Style #74542, "Bunny Ears", is a plastic headband covered with a white plush material. Sewn to the top are two fabric bunny ears that may be adjusted by a wire which runs around the ear frame. The headbands are made of flimsy construction and serve as an instant costume.

The applicable subheading for style #73269 "Shamrock Headband" and style #74542 "Bunny Ears" will be 9505.90.6090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for festive, carnival or other entertainment articles, including magic tricks and practical joke articles; parts and accessories thereof: other: other: other. 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 the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Alice J. Wong at 212-466-5538.
