The toy is considered a stuffed toy that represents an animal, classifiable in Chapter 95 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States. The sample will be returned, as requested.

The applicable subheading for the stuffed toy cat will be 9503.41.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Toys representing animals or non-human creaturesand parts and accessories thereof: Stuffed toys and parts and accessories thereofStuffed toys.” The rate of duty will be free.
