Dear Mr. LoBello:

In your letter dated January 28, 2002, on behalf of Malte Haaning Plastic A/S, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You submitted numerous pictures and various components. We are ruling on the following samples:

The plastic beads are pressed into the pegboard, the ironing paper is placed over them, and then “ironed” by a hot iron to adhere the beads together to form the animal shapes.

Item #204, Hama® “bottle of plastic beads”, consists of a bottle of 15,000 assorted colored plastic beads that measure approximately 1/8” in height x 1/16” in diameter and are used for insertion on a plastic pegboard (not included).
