RE: The tariff classification of Sesame Street Peek-A-View from China

Dear Ms. Frennea:

In your letter dated January 19, 1999 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You submitted a sample of the Sesame Street Peek-A-View.

It is intended for use in a motor vehicle. It is a back seat mirror for seeing a rear facing infant. A mirror is embedded in a “doll-like” likeness of the Sesame Street character “Elmo.” It attaches to the back seat of a motor vehicle by means of a Velcro and a safety pin.

The applicable subheading for the Sesame Street Peek-A-View will be 8708.9.8080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Parts and accessories of the motor vehicles of headings 8701 to 88705: Other parts and accessories: Other: Other: Other: Other...Other. The rate of duty will be 2.5% ad valorem.

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 Robert DeSoucey at 212-466-5667.

After January 28, 1999 the telephone number will be changed to 212-637-7035.
