Dear Ms. Schmerl:

In your letter dated November 16, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The samples submitted are as follows:

Item 70218, Spy Gear Signal Launcher, is a plastic pump toy that launches whistling signal rockets approximately 40 feet into the air. The rockets make a whistling rocket sound to alert your fellow playmate that you are launching a rocket with an attached message.

Item 49005, Liteformz Transforming Flashlights, is a plastic toy that can be transformed into a robot, a skorox and a flashlight. The toy allows a child to play with the toy as a robot, a skorox, and as a real flashlight.

Item 70230, Spy Gear Ultimate Spy Watch, is a plastic toy that has 8 gadgets attached. The spy watch can be used as a stopwatch, a decoder, a world time clock, a wake-up alarm, locking armor and motion alarm with a time stamp. The toy allows a child to decode messages and to monitor different time periods.

The weapons are as follows: sweeper nets, arch blades, battle whips, half arch blades, quarter arch blades, battle loops and general arsenal. These weapons are used by children while playing with their toy warriors in battle.

Item 70213, Spy Gear Dart Blaster, is a plastic toy wrist-mounted dart shooter. The toy component consists of 6 suction cup darts, a laser targeting system, a triple-barreled dart shooter and a rapid-fire trigger. The child wears the shooter on the wrist and finger, thus allowing the child to shoot at a target in rapid-fire succession and to focus on the target by using the laser system.

The components are as follows: a snap-on magnifier and scope, a snap-on light tube for night writing, a flashlight, a motion alarm, a locking storage case and a working pen. The pen can be used as a flashlight, a motion alarm, a writing light and scope. This toy allows a child to conduct spy activities and to document them in the dark.
