Hi Martin,

You're trying to iterate over 'loopy', which is your function name, using your 'items' argument.

Here's how it should look:

def loopy(items):
    # Code goes here
     for item in items:   #'item' could be anything, but traditionally people use singular form of plural argument name.
      print(item)
    if item == "STOP":
      break

This will print each item in the items argument until it finds one called 'STOP', and then it will stop execution.

Best, Cena
