What did i get wrong?

I did exactly what Craig did but it wont work. Is there something im missing or something that went unnoticed?

public class Example {

public static void main(String[] args) {
    // Your amazing code goes here...
    System.out.println("We are making a new Pez Dispenser.");
    PezDispenser dispenser = new PezDispenser ();
    System.out.printf("The dispenser character is %s\n", 


public class PezDispenser { private String mCharacterName = "Yoda";

public String getCharacterName() { return String mCharacterName; } }

Hello Adia,

You need to remove the "String" before mCharacterName when you're returning it in your PezDispenser class, as that variable's type was already set as a String when it was first declared.
