The other assortment includes: a polyester stuffed sock, a polyester stuffed catnip mouse, two EVA balls, a plastic dumbbell, and a textile fabric stuffed catnip “pillow.”

The applicable subheading for the stuffed polyester tree, the stuffed polyester sock, the stuffed polyester mice, and the textile fabric stuffed catnip “pillow” will be 6307.90.7500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for toys for pets, of textile materials.

We are returning any related samples, exhibits, etc. If you decide to resubmit your request, please include all of the material that we have returned to you.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
