Meet the seven-year-old boy who plays with toys and then reviews them on YouTube.

He has earned a staggering $22 million in 2018 alone, shares Daily Mail.

Ryan ToysReview came in first place in Forbes’ ranking of this year’s 10 highest-paid YouTubers in the world.

The young US boy, jumped from eighth place last year to number one this year.

According to his mother, Ryan was once an avid watcher of toy reviews, especially ones that focused on Thomas the Tank Engine, before he asked to start his own channel.

‘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,’ his mum told TubeFilter in 2016.

‘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.’

Most of his viewers are children between the ages of three and seven, his father said last year. The majority of Ryan’s fans are located in the US, but many also live in the UK and in the Philippines.

I think I need to go and have a word to my children ASAP!

  • Great money making gig, well done.


  • Wow. I am amazed a kid can make that much from doing this. Incredible.


  • Amazing that he can do that – I don’t want to expose my kids that way for a lesser return, though!


  • OMG! That is crazy. He must have an X factor that makes people watch.


  • I think that’s awesome, really fun thing to do with kids if you can and he was only seven we have watched a few of the unboxing toy ymreviewers in YouTube and it seems like a fun job!


  • My boys watch this sometimes. Their house is so full of toys it’s ridiculous. It’s quite good though. I wish i had had that idea, but i imagine that so many people are doing it now that the market would be saturated!


  • A multi-millionaire at seven years old is extraordinary. How awesome to play with nice toys and get famous and paid too. I can’t believe he has earnt so much but good on him and his mum.


  • Oh my god, such an unimaginable amount of money! And a seven year old has it. Mind boggling


  • Hopefully the parents keep him grounded


  • Wow, but I don’t get. Obviously a lot of people watch these but, hmmm, mind you I wouldn’t say no to the $’s.


  • I do not understand why anyone would want their child all over the internet like that. I don’t get why kids enjoy watching it either.

    • No I don’t desire for my kids to famous in this way either.


  • A lot of money for a young man – do hope the parents invest it wisely for him and don’t spend themselves.


  • Hopefully the parents use the money well


  • That’s amazing!! He is a talent.


  • Good on him. But, I just don’t get this phenomenon. I’ve tried to watch these reviews to understand the hype, and I just get bored. Clearly I’m not the target market… but it is certainly a growing and valued activity.

    • No – we are not the target market either.
