What am I doing wrong here? I thought it would b how I have it now but it keeps saying some about age.

Is addy not the property in front of age?

script.js
const addy = {
  animal: 'dog', 
  age: 3,
  breed: 'pug'
};
addy.age = [4];

The square brackets are unnecessary.

const addy = {
  animal: 'dog', 
  age: 3,
  breed: 'pug'
};
addy.age = 4;

Hope this helps!
