RE: The tariff classification of a Sleeping Dog and Pillow from China

Dear Mr. Blacques:

In your letter dated June 11, 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You are requesting the tariff classification on an item that is identified as a Sleeping Dog and Pillow. The size of the item is 12 inches long, 9.5 inches wide, and 4 inches in depth. Both the pillow portion and the toy dog portion are constructed of textile material. The pillow and dog are permanently glued together and would be considered one product. The principal use will be as a toy for the amusement of both children and adults. The proper classification will be in Chapter 95 of the HTS as toys representing animals and their accessories. Photographs were submitted, in lieu of samples.

The applicable subheading for the Sleeping Dog and Pillow 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.
