RE: The tariff classification of a children’s activity kit from China.

Dear Mr. Hoffacker:

In your letter dated June 29, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of K.B. Toys of Massachusetts, Inc.

A sample identified as a “Disney Princess Personalized Desk Set with Bonus Bracelet” (Item # 24489) was submitted for our examination and is being returned to you as requested.
