Dear Mr. Edwards,

In your letter dated November 14, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The item concerned is a Fisher Price Rainforest Soft Pleated Window Shade (Style 50325).

The Fisher Price Rainforest Soft Pleated Window Shade is designed to shield a child’s eyes from sunlight while they are riding in a vehicle. It is rectangular in shape with pleats all down its front and a round shaft across its top. The Window Shade measures 15 inches in width, 3 ½ inches in depth and 21 ½ inches in length, when extended, and is made of 100% polyester with plastic stiffeners. It comes with clips and suction cups for use in attaching to a vehicle side window and a parrot and soft, three-dimensional dragonfly attached to its top shaft which move with the motion of the vehicle.

The applicable classification subheading for the Fisher Price Rainforest Soft Pleated Window Shade (Style 50325) will be 8708.99.8180, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “ accessories of motor vehicles : Other accessories: Other: Other: Other: Other: Other: Other”.
