RE: The tariff classification of a textile Santa from China.

Dear Ms. Aldinger:

In your letter dated July 14, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is identified as item #972075, Musical Cowboy Santa. It is composed of acrylic plush fabric. It is filled with polyester stuffing and plastic. The item measures 11 inches in height. The right hand of the Cowboy Santa has a chip inside. When the hand is pressed, it sings and moves one hand. A rope with a loop in one end is attached to both of Santa's hands. Santa is wearing a brown pile fabric hat with a plaid band and green holly leaves. He is dressed in a cowboy outfit; brown vest, plaid shirt, blue jeans and a black belt. There is an opening in the back of Santa with a plastic box that holds two "AA" size batteries. This area has a hook and loop closure.

The applicable subheading for the Cowboy Santa will be 9505.10.5020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for festive...articles for Christmas festivities and parts and accessories thereof: other, other. The rate of duty will be free.
