RE: The tariff classification of a plastic body sponge from China.

Dear Ms. Liu:

Your letter of inquiry states that this article will be imported in three assorted styles, a dog, a bear and a horse.

The sample is returned as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the plastic body sponge will be 3924.90.5500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides forother household articles and toilet articles, of plastics, other, other. The rate of duty will be 3.4 percent ad valorem.
