RE: The tariff classification of children’s game and puzzle books from China.

Dear Ms. Tomasio:

In your letter dated December 5, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Two of the books subject of this inquiry, “The Great Barrier Reef” and “Clue School The Lost Lunch Mystery,” consist of a children’s reader together with a puzzle that reinforces the information in that book. The remaining two books, “The Long Ride” and “The Penguins’ Perfect Picnic,” are composed of reading text and game cards, game boards and game pieces. Each of the books fulfills the provisionary language of multiple tariff subheadings requiring that they each be classified according to their essential character.

The applicable subheading for the “Clue School The Lost Lunch Mystery” and “The Great Barrier Reef” will be 9503.60.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Other toysPuzzles and parts and accessories thereof: Other. The rate of duty will be free.

The applicable subheading for “The Long Ride” and “The Penguins’ Perfect Picnic” will be 9504.90.9080, HTSUS, which provides for “Articles for arcade, table or parlor gamesOther: Other: Other.” 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 Tom McKenna at 646-733-3025.
