RE: The tariff classification of animal toy bath sponges from China

Dear Ms. Quinn:

In your letter dated August 5, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The item will be sold in four different styles as follows: Flamingo, #05-731, Pudel, #05-735, Frog, #05-733, and Monkey, #05-732. Although the bath sponges function as washing implements their primary function is as a source of amusement for a child, during bath time. Copies of photographs of the actual items were submitted, in lieu of samples.

The applicable subheading for the animal toy bath sponges, #’s 05-731, 05-735, 05-733, and 05-732, will be 9503.41.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for toys representing animals or non-human creaturesand 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.
