Python Python Basics (2015) Shopping List App Break

A bit lost on this one.

In the video, we created a shopping list then 'break' at DONE. Do I need to create a shopping list with this question as well? I am confused as to what is being asked.

breaks.py
def loopy(items):
    # Code goes here
for item in loopy
    print(item)
if item=='STOP'
  break

You code suffers mostly from indention issues and the print should be after the if ... 'STOP':

def loopy(items):
    # Code goes here
    # indent to 4-spaces
    for item in items:  # <-- add missing colon
        # move if inside loop to break loop if 'STOP' seen
        if item=='STOP':  # <-- add missing colon
            break
        print(item)

Edit changed to loop to for item in items

Thanks Chris,

I tried it and it still doesn't work. I noticed I had 'item' instead of 'items' in my earlier code so I switched to items instead still with no luck.

def loopy(items): # Code goes here for items in loopy:
if items=='STOP':
break print(items)

I believe everything is indented correctly, but might have something slightly off. Thanks again for the help.
