RE: The tariff classification of a plastic storage organizer from China.

Dear Ms. Wierbicki:

In your letter dated July 21, 2004, on behalf of your client Tara Toy Corporation, you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample is identified as item number 20056. It is a hanging toy car organizer that measures approximately 48 inches long by 24 inches wide. The toy car organizer incorporates pockets for individually storing and displaying “Hot Wheels” miniature cars. The storage organizer is constructed from dark blue polyvinyl chloride (PVC) material that is backed with man-made fiber woven textile fabric. Twelve sections of clear polyvinyl chloride (PVC) material are vertically heat sealed onto the organizer, creating eleven horizontal rows of twelve small pockets and one horizontal row of seven pockets.

The third row features one large center pocket and three smaller pockets at either end. The front center pocket is emblazoned with the “Hot Wheels” logo, complete with the flame. The storage organizer is designed for hanging over the door by means of two 12-inch long nylon straps. Each strap incorporates a metal hook. The bottom of the organizer has an adjustable nylon strap with a metal hook to firmly secure the storage organizer to the door. The plastic components impart the essential character to this storage organizer.
