RE: The tariff classification of “My Wrap” activity kits from China, Korea, Taiwan or Vietnam

Dear Ms. Schreiber:

In your letter dated November 5, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of your client, Fundamentally Kids, LLC.

Photos were submitted of three activity kits identified as the “My Wrap Custom Gift Wrapping Paper Activity Kit”, “My Wrap Custom Gift Bag Activity Kit” and “My Wrap Custom Gift Box Activity Kit. The photos will be returned to you as requested.

The three educational activity kits have theme based projects that are geared toward two age groups, according to their educational capability, from ages three and up and seven and up. Each kit is specialized in recognizing the differences among age groups in regard to their reading, cognitive and fine motor skills. The activity kits supply partially completed and colored graphics with text on paper, bags and boxes. The instruction sheets guide and encourage children to create unique designs and complete various activities using coordinating stickers, stencils, crayons and markers. The kits that are packaged for the three and up age group contain crayons and the kits packaged for the seven and up age group include markers. As per your letter the kits are put up for retail sale in a clear hard plastic package that allows the consumer to see the contents of each kit.

The applicable subheading for the “My Wrap Custom Gift Bag Activity Kit” will be 4819.40.0040, (HTSUS), which provides for other (than certain enumerated) sacks and bags of paper. The rate of duty will be free.

The applicable subheading for the “My Wrap Custom Gift Box Activity Kit” will be 4819.50.4060, (HTSUS), which provides for other (than certain enumerated) packing containers, of paper or paperboard: rigid boxes and cartons. The rate of duty will be free.
