problem with solution code

Can anyone tell me what is wrong with my code for this particular challenge? Also, why do I get an EOF error using input

suggestinator.py
def suggest(product_idea):
    if len(product_name)< 3:
        raise ValueError("Length of the word is less than three characters long")
    grand_total = str(product_idea) + "inator"
    return grand_total
try:

    product_name = input("Enter a product string")
    final_name = suggest(product_name)

except ValueError as err:
    print("That is not a correct entry")
    print("{}".format(err))
else:
    print("The product name is {}".format(final_name))

The code from the input statement to the end should be removed as it confuses the checker.

The function should only reference the parameters. The challenge checks behavior by calling the function. It does not have data to feed an input statement when it is not expected. So the EOF is from unexpectedly reaching the end of the *behavior check” script, not necessarily the end of your code.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
