Dear Ms. Borges:

In your letter of September 27, 2002 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The Play-Doh LUNCH TO GO Modeling Compound Set with carrying bag consists of one 5 oz. and four 2 oz. plastic cans of Play-Doh Modeling Compound; plastic toy knife and spoon modeling tools; a plastic juice box that breaks-in-two to form handles for plastic bread, tomato, lettuce, meat, cheese, cookie and pretzel shape-cutter molds; and a Play-Doh bag of soft vinyl sheeting with sides of two-layer and top and bottom of three-layer construction measuring 8-1/2”L x 6-1/2”W x 3-1/2”H. The bag is divided into three perman-ently sewn compartments for specific items; is not insulated; and is intended for play only. All items are sized for use by children ages 3 and up. The child molds the different shapes and carries them in a make believe lunch box for play fun. Your samples are being returned.
