This six-year-old earns $14.6m a year reviewing toys


When you were six years old you probably weren't looking at revenue like this.

Ryan reviews toys on YouTube; his channel launched in March 2015 when he was just three years old.

It now has 10 million subscribers and, according to Forbes, the child YouTube star made a jaw-dropping $11 million in 2017.

As you can guess by the channel name...

Ryan ToysReview

...Ryan reviews toys and it's quite cute.

Here's a standard episode:

During an interview with TubeFilter, Ryan's mother, Loann, said:

One day, he asked me, ‘How come I’m not on YouTube when all the other kids are?’

So we just decided — yeah, we can do that.

Then, we took him to the store to get his very first toy — I think it was a Lego train set — and it all started from there.

And, thus, a star was born.

Loann said the earnings from the channel are going into a college savings account for Ryan and a trust fund for him and his twin sisters.
