RE: The tariff classification of “Paper Doll World” from China.

Dear Mr. Marinescu:

In your letter dated July 12, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You submitted a sample of “Paper Doll World” identified as item number 8826, which is being returned upon your request. “Paper Doll World” is an educational toy craft set that consists of one spiral bound 36 page instructional book that has illustrated panels and measures approximately 10" x 9" and a plastic container with cardboard backing that is attached to the spirals on the cover of the book. The plastic container is divided into compartments that contain 1 designer stencil, 28 stick-on gems, 1 bag of sequins, 1 bag of seed beads, 1 tube of glitter glue, 1 ribbon, “sticky stuff’ reusable adhesive and furry yarn. To use, a child will choose a clothing design and a paper doll from one of the book pages or use the stencil sheet and trace a clothing design onto a sheet of colored paper and create their own design. Then the child will either remove the clothing design from its perforated outline on the pages or cut out the stenciled shape from the colored paper and glue it to a paper doll using the “sticky stuff” adhesive. Additionally, several pages of the book depict scenes, such as a child’s bedroom, the beach, the park, etc., which a child can decorate with the paper dolls and various accompanying accessories. The assorted components are intended to stimulate play by encouraging the creative senses of a child six years of age and older as they “design” clothing and accessories for the paper dolls and play with these dolls in the provided environment.

The applicable subheading for the “Paper Doll World” identified as item number 8826 will be 9502.10.0060 which provides for "Dolls representing only human beings and parts and accessories thereof: Dolls, whether or not dressedOther." The rate of duty will be Free.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.

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 Alice Wong at 646-733-3026.
