This item features two "Goosebumps" hands as book holders, motion activated sound effects, a digital alarm clock, an AM/FM radio, built in antenna, volume switch, tuner switch, and is powered by three "AA" batteries.

The applicable subheading for this radio will be 8527.19.1000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for reception apparatus for radiotelephony...: radiobroadcast receivers...: other: valued not over $40 each, incorporating a clock or clock-timer, not in combination with any other article, and not designed for motor vehicle installation. The rate of duty will be free.

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