RE: The tariff classification of Water Bombs from China.

Dear Ms. Marlow:

In your letter dated June 17, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You submitted an assortment of Water Bombs identified as item number 04510, which are being returned upon your request. The Water Bombs are multi-colored spongy balls with a textile outer surface that measure approximately 3-1/4” in diameter. Each ball absorbs water that is released as it is thrown and caught, soaking the recipient of the ball. The Water Bombs are intended to provide frivolous amusement and are packaged in an assortment of three inside a mesh bag with a hangtag.

The applicable subheading for the Water Bombs identified as item number 04510 will be 9503.90.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Other toys; reduced-size ("scale") models and similar recreational models, working or not; puzzles of all kinds; parts and accessories thereof: Other: Other.” 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 Alice Wong at 646-733-3026.
