Hm. Am I close at all on this?
I feel I followed the video precisely and looked at my notes and understood, but I guess I don't have this. Am I any close on this or am I way off? I think given more practice, I'll get this down, I just am not sure where I am on this.
def loopy(items): while True: new_item = input("> ") if new_item == "STOP": break items.append(new_item) for item in items: print(items)

The answer below worked for me, it should work for you too. Notice in your initial attempt you're printing out "items" which is an array, whereas "item" is each individual object in that array. Also Python is super space sensitive, so make sure you're using correct spacing each time.
def loopy(items): for item in items: if item == "STOP": break print (item)

Hi Sean. You are close enough, the for loop it's needed but the while and input() you don't need and it's not required after the for statement you can do
if item == 'STOP': break else: print(item)
it item != 'STOP': print(item) else: break
in both ways it will work. I hope this helps you out. Happy coding
