RE: The tariff classification of a plastic dinnerware set, a plastic shower massage, a plastic shower organizer, three plastic picture frames and a 25 piece kitchen organizer from China.

Dear Mr. Coe:

In your letter dated February 24, 1994, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You have submitted photographs and descriptions of five items. Item F-1246 is a five piece child's plastic dinnerware set. It consists of a plate, cup, saucer fork and spoon. The fork and spoon appear to be metal with plastic handles. All five items have a similar motif and the words "hugs and love" on them. The set appears to be intended for a child to eat with and not for use as a toy.

Item F-1441 is a shower massage of plastic. It is hand held and has a short length of flexible tubing.

Item F-1520 is a plastic shower organizer. It has two shelves and a mirror.

Item F-1573 is a set of three molded plastic picture frames.

Item X-1593 is a 25 piece kitchen organizer set. It is composed of a plastic holder or organizer which contains all the rest of the items in the group. The organizer holds 4 plastic measuring cups, 5 plastic measuring spoons and five other plastic utensils. In addition the organizer holds 6 glass spice bottles with plastic lids, a can opener, bottle opener, wire whisk and a vegetable peeler.
