Accessing Nested Objects in JSON

The properties and sub-properties of JSON objects can be accessed by chaining together the dot or bracket notation.

Here is a nested JSON Object:

var ourStorage = {
"desk": {
"drawer": "stapler"
"cabinet": {
"top drawer": {
"folder1": "a file",
"folder2": "secrets"
"bottom drawer": "soda"
ourStorage.cabinet["top drawer"].folder2; // "secrets"
ourStorage.desk.drawer; // "stapler"


Access the myStorage JSON object to retrieve the contents of the glove box. Use bracket notation for properties with a space in their name.
