5. Two clear soft plastic suction cups, measuring approximately 1" in diameter.

The merchandise is put up together for retail sale as a set and is designed for age 4 and up.

The sample, as described above, is a set for Customs purposes and has the essential character of amusement colors in a set. It is classified in accordance with the General Rules of Interpretation (GRI) under GRI 3 (b).
