RE: The tariff classification of a flimsy costume from China.

Dear Ms. Ford:

In your letter dated April 17, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You have requested a ruling on the following textile costume set, which is being returned upon your request.

Item TRU 96667, Dream Dazzlers Ultimate Princess Set, is a textile costume set that consists of pink color-coordinated articles, including a short sleeve dress made of woven polyester with a nylon knit overlay, a pair of gloves and a purse made of the same construction as the dress, and plastic toy shoes, a plastic crown, a plastic wand and plastic jewelry, with the dress imparting the essential character. Although the dress has three styling features (multiple layer top and sleeves and a peplum) and three well-made embellishments (rick rack on top, a sewn bow and a brooch), it has flimsy loose single stitching at the neck and waist, loose stitching at the seams, thin elastics at the arms and top, a flimsy hook and loop tab closure with overlock stitching and flimsy overlock stitching at the arms, closure, peplum and two skirt layer edges.

The applicable subheading for Item TRU 96667, Dream Dazzlers Ultimate Princess Set, will be 9505.90.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Festive, carnival or other entertainment articles, including magic tricks and practical joke articles; parts and accessories thereof: Other: Other.
