I think it wants an array literal

var objects = [];

You can read more on different types of literals here

Hi Stacy,

I believe you need to create the array by using brackets like these '[ ]' rather than curly braces like these '{ }'.

'{}' are used to create objects, and '[]' are used to create arrays.

So maybe try var objects = [];

Let me know if it works.

Thanks Joe
