RE: The tariff classification of a “Let’s Play School” activity kit from China

Dear Ms. Tomasio:

In your letter dated March 27, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You submitted a sample of the “Let’s Play School” identified as ISBN 978-1-58476-665-0. The “Let’s Play School” book becomes a flip-chart easel that creates an imaginary classroom space when opened. The interior of the book contains a 40 page spiral workbook with dozens of classroom appropriate activities, a dry-erase marker, 2 dry-erase report cards, a magnetic rewritable board, 6 animal magnets, 32 magnetic pattern blocks, 32 stickers, movable day, date, and month wheels, a clock with movable hands, and rewritable charts. The item is considered an educational toy that provides manipulative play lessons for a child who is learning both mathematical and verbal skills. The learning takes place in the context of practical lessons, for example reading the calendar, telling time, shopping and making change, and creating shapes and patterns. The sample will be returned, as requested.

The applicable subheading for the “Let’s Play School” activity kit will be 9503.00.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Tricycles, scooters, pedal cars and similar wheeled toysdolls, other toyspuzzles of all kinds; parts and accessories thereofOther.” The rate of duty will be free.

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist James Forkan at 646-733-3025.
