Pack Your Bag explainer


Hi @TomLarryJr,

Could you share a screenshot of your code so I can have a look? I might be able to spot if there is an issue on our side, or a small element in your code that needs to be changed.

Hi @MaxH,

Same question! Could you share a screenshot of your code so I can have a look and hopefully figure out what’s blocking you?

I got help on. The peoblem was that i made an extra variable for Mybackpack.


Great to hear you got help and were able to solve this puzzle!


Hello. I cannot figure this one out. Please help. The instructions and other notes aren’t enough i am missing something critical here.


Hey @Robert_Hise,

This is a tricky puzzle! The aim is to create a ‘backpack’ which is an object. You may want to look at the lesson ‘Make a Name for Yourself’ to refresh your memory on how objects are structured.

The object should be stored in a variable called myBackpack, and have three properties: food, equipment and clothing. Each of the properties should hold 'bananas', 'map' and 'hat' respectively.

Once the object is created, the food property should be printed out using print(

If you’re still having trouble, I’d be more than happy to look at a screenshot of your code and see if I can spot where the issue is.

I figured it out right after I messaged you. I guess I needed to take a break and come back to it. I appreciate the help.


Sweet! Glad you were able to figure it out :slight_smile:


Having trouble here. I know it needs to say print(, but the code editor won’t let me do that. As soon as I hit myBackpack, it closes the brackets and there’s no way to manually edit it. So I’m stuck.



Are you able to tap on myBackpack inside print(myBackpack) then tap on the .food key? You may have to scroll your keyboard to the right to see the .food key.

Let me know if this doesn’t work!

Yes, that worked. Did you change something? I tried everything for 10 mins before, without success.
Thanks anyway… moving on…


Finally I completed this puzzle after trying to figure out the right codes for half an hour very nice puzzle


Whats the problem here


Can you help?




I’m stuck too. I reviewed Making a Name for Yourself, and I just don’t know what I did wrong. I’m sad and frustrated.


This is the code that got me past this one


Hey @Vivacia,

Don’t be sad or frustrated! These are the last few puzzles in the Fundamentals course and are by far the hardest. Don’t feel bad for struggling.

Have a look at @Momo and @Boba_the_fetts posts — they’ve shared examples of ways to solve this puzzle.

Let me know if there is something you don’t quite understand, I’d be happy to explain!

I created a variable and named it MyBackpack. I created {}. I can’t go further because I’m not given a keyboard option when I tap the gray box


Ok. So I figured out why no keyboard, but it’s still not working
