Dear Ms. Edwards:

In your letter dated November 28, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is identified as “The Fisher Price Bathtub Corner Cubby.” You state that it is an organizer that is designed to be used in the bathtub to hold toys. It measures approximately 15”W x 8”H x 10”D and fits securely in the corner of the tub by four adjustable suction cups. The bottom and front of the cubby are made of a polyester mesh knit fabric. You indicate that the purpose of the polyester mesh is to allow water to drain out of the organizer. The top of the cubby is open to allow for easy access and storage of tub toys. The back panel’s composition is an 85% polyvinyl chloride/15% nylon combination and is decorated with screen-printed characters.
