RE: The tariff classification of Video Now Player and various accessories from China

Dear Ms. Santos:

In your letter dated February 24, 2003 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The first item, # 72647, is called Video Now Player. It is a personal Video Player with a black and white display. It is sold with a specially designed 85 mm mini disc, which play clips from popular children’s television shows. The Player can not play normal MP3 discs or standard CDs. Its limited use indicates the item is a toy.

The second item, #66716, is a three pack Disc Assortment. These are additional discs to use on the Video Now Player.

The third item, # 66715, is called Video Now Light. This is a light attachment, sold separately, which is specifically designed to clip over the top of the player.

The fourth item, #66712, is called Video Now Headphones. Used with the Video Now Player to allow for silent listening and sold separately, the headphones are not specifically designed for use with the player and can be used in most electronic devises.

The fifth item, for which there is a sample, is the Video Now Carry Case, item number 66705. It is designed to fit the Video Now Player and has a pocket on the outside for storing the Video Now discs. Made of man-made fiber with a clear plastic window for viewing and the nylon mesh pocket, it has a clip at the top to allow attachment to a backpack of belt loop. The Carry Case is sold separately.

Your Video Now Carry Case sample is returned by the shipping label you provided.
