RE: The tariff classification of dog toys from China

Dear Ms. Aldinger:

In your letter dated June 5, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is identified as the “11-Pack Dog Combo” (referred to in your letter as item #959996 and on the description sheet as A72T00096), which you state comes is three similar assortments; we received the “Blue Snowman,” and this ruling applies only to the Blue Snowman assortment we have received. It is packed in a plastic carrying bag, which is considered normal packaging.

The “Blue Snowman” assortment consists of:
