Highest-Paid YouTube Star Is 7 Years Old

As per report, the little Ryan who reviews toys has been revealed as YouTube's highest-earning star, raking in $22m (£17.3m), having his own range of toys at U.S. store Walmart.

It's understood almost all of the mini-millionaire's money came from pre-roll advertising, with Forbes explaining "when views go up, so do these automated ad dollars".

Asked by NBC why his videos were so popular, Ryan said: "Because I'm entertaining and I'm amusing".

The amount generated by sponsored posts is small compared with other top YouTubers, Forbes writes.

Since the channel was set up by Ryan's parents in March 2015, its videos have had nearly 26 billion views and amassed 17.3 million followers.




Online sensation Jake Paul was second on Forbes' list, with £16.8m. Earlier this year, he even got his own range of toys and clothing, called Ryan's World, at Walmart, which will likely boost his earnings even higher next year.

Jake Paul went from 7th in 2017 to 2nd in 2018, bringing in $21.5 million (about Rs. 151.32 crore) in the process, while his controversial brother Logan dropped six places to 10th. The line is heavily promoted on his YouTube channel and features variety of action figurines, t-shirts, toys, and more.

Ryan's YouTube channel has several videos categories such as Animation for kids, Easy and Fun Science Experiments for kids, Educational videos for kids, and Giant Egg Surprise Toys Collector to name few.

Ryan's parents are reportedly putting 15 percent of his earnings away into a bank account until he is a legal adult.

Of course, RyanToysReview isn't the sole property of seven-year-old Ryan, himself - the channel is run by his mother and father, who also appear in his videos, along with his twin sisters.
