The animal design on the front of the bag consist of a felt body and polyester stuffing in the head. This backpack closes with a nylon zipper across the top. It is carried by two grosgrain material straps which allow it to be worn on the back.

The applicable subheading for the child's backpack, item #11142020, will be 4202.92.4500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated, which provides for trunks, suitcases, vanity cases...traveling bags...sports bags...and similar containers...other...with outer surface of sheeting of plastic...travel, sports and similar bags...other.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations.

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
