RE: The tariff classification of a spider on a web from China.

Dear Ms. O'Beirn:

In your letter dated September 22, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You are requesting the tariff classification of an inflatable spider on a web, item number BW60. The item, which will be used at Halloween, is composed of 70% nylon, 20% PVC, and 10% other materials. The product is a representation of a spider on a web with an inflatable insert and lights included. Since this item is designed primarily for the amusement of children or adults, it is considered a toy, classifiable in heading 9503 of the tariff.

The applicable subheading for the spider on a web will be 9503.49.0025, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for "Toys representing animals or non-human creatures...and parts and accessories thereof: Other...Toys." 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).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Thomas A. McKenna at 212-466-5475.
