Dear Mr. Sanshuk:

In your letter dated April 6, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of your client, Scenario LLC.

It measures approximately 5”W x 3”H x 3”D. The outer skin is 89% polyester textile fabric/11% spandex, the inner bag is 100% polyester textile fabric, and the inside stuffing is 100% polystyrene beads.
