RE: The tariff classification of a nursery care kit from China.

Dear Ms. Mihalek:

In your letter dated April 16, 1999, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The kit consists of a plastic nasal aspirator, a plastic oral medicine syringe with a stopper, a thermometer, a plastic medicine spoon, metal nail clippers and metal scissors. These items are packaged for retail sale, but they do not all contribute to one specific need or activity. Therefore, the items are classified separately.
