RE: The tariff classification of a toy dog from Hong Kong

Dear Mr. McManus:

In your letter dated September 8, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You are requesting the tariff classification on a product that is described as a stuffed toy dog. No style number has been designated for this item. The outer shell will be a textile material, however the interior will be filled with 100% polystyrene beads. You are also inquiring about the HTS classification if the toy dog should be imported as an empty shell, to be filled after importation. The classification will be in Chapter 95 of the HTS as other toys representing animals, whether the dog is imported filled, or unfilled. The sample will be returned, as requested by your office.

The applicable subheading for the toy dog will be 9503.49.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for toys representing animals or non-human creaturesand parts and accessories thereof: 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 Tom McKenna at 646-733-3025.
