RE: The tariff classification of 3 styles of bath scrubby toys from China.

Dear Mr. Stinson:

In your letter dated April 17, 2003, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You are requesting the tariff classification on 3 assorted styles of bath scrubby animal toys. The scrubby toys represent a hippo, a fish or a bear. The scrubby bath toys are composed of textile materials on both the exterior surfaces and in the stuffing. The correct classification is in Chapter 95 of the HTS as other toys representing animals because the product will serve to amuse a child while bathing and the scrubby part (the cleaning implement) is secondary. The samples will be returned, as requested.

The applicable subheading for the 3 styles of bath scrubby toys (Hippo, Fish, Bear) will be 9503.41.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for toys representing animals or non-human creatures...and parts and accessories thereof: stuffed toys and parts and accessories thereof. The rate of duty will be free.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Tom McKenna at 646-733-3025.
