RE: The tariff classification of a Totally Taylor Take Along Tote and a Disney Princess Project & Draw from China.

Dear Ms. York:

In your letter dated May 16, 2006, on behalf of your client, Target Stores, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You submitted the following two samples, which are being returned upon your request:

Item 35135, Totally Taylor Take Along Tote, which consists of a 4” plastic poseable doll (Totally Taylor), and its accessories (a skirt, two coats, a sleeveless dress, a shopping bag, a purse, a wide-brimmed hat, a scarf, a hand mirror and a comb). The Totally Taylor doll and her accessories are packaged in a handbag-like container of clear vinyl sheeting, approximately 9” across by 8” deep with 2” expandable edges and bottom made of stretch knit fabric. The vinyl is 6 mil in thickness, indicating that it is suitable for prolonged use. It has sewn seams, a vinyl handle, and a snap closure.

Although packaged with the doll and her accessories, the tote bag is not considered normal and usual packaging for the doll and will be classified separately.

Item 90517, Disney Princess Project & Draw, is a portable pink and purple plastic drawing projector with a lens, a projector arm that locks into place, a side storage drawer, an on/off switch, 7 markers, a marker/crayon holder and a dry erase surface. The Disney Princess Project & Draw also includes six “Princess Disks” with over 40 character images that slide into a slot above the lens, which allows the still images of “Disney Princesses” to be projected onto the dry erase surface. The user then traces the image on the dry erase surface with the dry erase markers. The Disney Princess Project & Draw requires four AA batteries, which are not included, and is packaged in an illustrated cardboard box with a window display for retail sale.
