RE: The tariff classification of a plastic snack tray and a baby automobile mirror from China.

Dear Ms. Edwards:

In your letter dated December 8, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The first sample submitted is identified as a Fisher-Price Snack Tray, item number 50266. The plastic snack tray is fashioned with two attachment clamps that fit most car seats and strollers. The snack tray consists of three sections for holding articles such as toys, snacks or drinks such as sippy cups, juice boxes or bottles. The center lid swivels to cover either compartment. The universal clamp fits most forward-facing car seats. The Fisher-Price snack tray is designed to make it easy to feed children while traveling.

The second sample submitted is identified as a Fisher-Price Rainforest Automobile Mirror, style number 50283. This mirror is a convex plastic mirror that attaches to the back seat for wide-angle viewing of an infant in a child safety seat. The mirror also provides entertainment with sights, sounds and music. It features a timer that can be set at 20, 40 or 60 minutes to allow sounds and music to play. An adjustable mobile rod is attached above the mirror that holds three entertaining hanging characters. The mobile rod is composed of 100 percent polyurethane foam and the three hanging characters are composed of 100 percent polyester fabric and stuffed with 100 percent polyester fibers. The front panel is 100 percent polyester and the back panel is 60 percent polyester and 40 percent cotton blend. The dimensions of the assembled product are 12.5” long by 1.5” wide by 15.75” high. The mirror has multiple attachment options for viewing rear-facing infants, including a patented tether attachment.
