The ghost has blinking eyes powered by a “AA” battery that is not included. The article is intended as a decoration to create a scary environment for the Halloween holiday.

The applicable subheading for Item #3, 17” Blacklight Responsive Plastic Ghost, 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.
