Dear Mr. Shostak:

In your letter dated October 18, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You submitted the following samples:

Item #6520220, Pumpkin Push Ins,™ consists of twenty colored plastic pieces depicting eyes, ears, mouths, noses, and horns that can be pushed into a pumpkin to create a jack-o-lantern-like face in lieu of actually carving the pumpkin. The item is intended as a home decoration for the Halloween holiday.

Item #6546190, “Bugaboo” Antenna, is a decorative headband designed for use as a costume on the Halloween holiday that consists of a pink rigid horseshoe headband covered with pink faux fur with two attached spring antennae. Affixed to the top of each antenna are two matching purple foam balls.

Item #6546390, “Princess Wildfire” Tiara, is a styrene hair slide decorated with blue faux fur, blue flowers, and three shades of blue ribbon. The tiara is of the kind that normally serves to enhance one's appearance by holding the hair in place.

The applicable subheading for Item #6520220, Pumpkin Push Ins,™ and Item #6546190, “Bugaboo” Antenna, will be 9505.90.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Festive, carnival or other entertainment articles, including magic tricks and practical joke articles; parts and accessories thereof: Other: Other.” The rate of duty will be free.
