Dear Ms. Hobbs:

In your letter dated April 9, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The entire item is constructed of plastic; there are no lenses in the frames of the eyeglasses. The frame of the glasses wraps around the ears and one side of the hollow tubular frame extends past the mouth to act as a drinking straw. The sample will be returned, as requested by your office.

The Silly Straw Wacky Glasses are not manufactured or marketed to serve as eyewear. The product is distinguishable as a toy designed purely for amusement purposes by its construction and manner of packaging.
