I'm not exactly sure I have it all right but I have even written it exactly how others have gotten it right and I still get errors (mostly "didn't find all the right things in items)

breaks.py
def loopy(items):
    for thing in items:
        while thing is True:
              print(thing)
        if thing == "STOP":
            break

you don't need the while, you are just looping through the items, if it says stop, break, else, print, so you need to test for stop first before printing. it doesn't want you to print the stop item, you gotta break before that.

Never mind, I tried my original answer (not the one i posted)and it passed I might have had another small error the first time but thanks James

Okay i removed the while and put if thing == 'STOP' break .....then the print but it still says "didn't find the right items to print"
