Dear Mr. Levy:

In your letter dated January 23, 2001, you requested a tariff classification ruling, on behalf of Knowledge Kids Enterprises, Inc, your client.

The phonics game features an interactive teaching aid that talks, an Activity Guide with 34 games, manipulative parts for all activities, including 2 game boards, 8 bingo boards, 2 decks of letter cards, 1 deck of picture cards, dice and pogs. There are also four batteries included that are needed for operating the game and for using the headphones. Children learn the alphabet, letter sounds and word creation through six learning modes, with a guiding voice that makes learning engaging and fun. The sample will be returned, as requested.
