In your letter dated January 29, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The bear figures stand approximately 16” in height and are dressed in textile fabric costumes. You indicate that the items are constructed of 50 percent acrylic plush, 20 percent wood, 20 percent other materials, and 10 percent polyester fiber stuffing.

Although you propose that the items be classified under HTSUS subheading 9503.41.0000, which provides toys representing animals or non-human creaturesparts and accessories thereof: stuffed toys and parts and accessories thereof. The items are actually intended for decorative purposes, not as playthings. The wood and wire construction of the figures militate against use by children.

The applicable subheading for the decorative bears will be 6307.90.9889, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other made up textile articles, other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem.

The samples will be returned as requested.
