This 6-Year-Old Makes $11 Million a Year Reviewing Toys on YouTube

By  | 

Think back to the days as a six-year-old. Life was simple, all you had to worry about was eating vegetables, taking naps, and whether or not you’d be mentioned on Forbes list of top-earning YouTubers. Oh, wait, that last one might just be YouTube sensation Ryan of Ryan ToysReview.

Ryan is a six-year-old YouTuber who managed to earn up to $11 million last year alone. How the hell did a child earn that much? Well, he created some pretty adorable and addictive videos on the internet.

The title of his channel says it all, Ryan reviews toys and his 10 million subscribers watch him do it on a daily basis. He has any child’s dream job! He has many adult’s dream job too! Who wouldn’t want to get paid millions of dollars to play with toys on the internet?

According to The Washington Post, Ryan and his parents started his channel two years ago with a video of Ryan playing with a box of Legos. The then 3-year-old wasn’t an instant success, like most YouTubers, but grew his base over time. Eventually, people caught wind of this adorable kid and he quickly rose to internet stardom like a crazy cat video.

“One day, he asked me, ‘How come I’m not on YouTube when all the other kids are?’” his mother said recalling the humble beginnings of Ryan’s channel. “So we just decided – yeah, we can do that.”


Now, this 6-year-old is rolling in the dough. What’s more, there is a chance he will be earning even more from his channel as the years go on. Currently, Ryan is listed as number eight on Forbes highest paid YouTube stars list, but he could easily make his adorable climb to the top.

Forbes first introduced the highest paid YouTube stars list back in 2015 after Sweedish YouTuber PewDiePie managed to rake in $12 million in earnings. Since then, he has been dethroned by other internet stars as more and more people create their own unique channels. According to Forbes, the top ten stars on their list make about 80% more money this year than last year.

Needless to say, it’s clear that Ryan from Ryan ToysReview will never have to worry about money again.
