The rocks will be imported in four designs: Smart Alec, M.C. Dawg, Susie Cheers, and Gross-Out Gary.

The applicable subheading for Item #251064, Talking Rock Buddies, will be 9503.90.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other toys; reduced-size ("scale") models and similar recreational models, working or not; puzzles of all kinds; parts and accessories thereof: other: parts and accessories. The rate of duty will be free. The rate of duty will remain unchanged in the year 2002.
