Let’s dive back in time and try to remember, what would you be possibly doing at the age of 6-years? Giving your imagination wings that they deserve, watching cartoons, eating muds, learning bicycle and what not. But what if we tell you a 6-year-old raking approximately millions of money in a month just by reviewing toys online. Yes, you read that right.
A 6-year-old boy who hosts a popular toy-review channel on YouTube is mincing in millions of dollars a year. Toys Review, a family run YouTube channel, generated around $11 million in pretax income in 2017, the site reported, referencing Forbes’ annual list of the highest-earning YouTube celebrities. The online sensation launched his show in 2015 and is now a viral hit.
The channel started slowly until a 2015 video went viral, the report said. The video, showing Ryan opening and reviewing a “GIANT EGG SURPRISE” box containing over 100 toys from Pixar’s “Cars” series, has close to 800 million views, according to the story.
A family-run YouTube channel, Ryan Toys Review generated around $11 million in pretax income in 2017, according to Forbes’ annual list of the highest-earning YouTube celebrities. The account began when Ryan, then simply a 4-year-old fan of toy-review videos, asked his parents why he couldn’t also review toys on YouTube.
According to the Verge, the channel’s viewership, which boasts a current audience of 10 million subscribers, translates to around $1 million a month in advertising revenue alone.
Ryan, the pint-sized star of Ryan Toys Review, has just been named by Forbes as one of the world’s highest-paid YouTube star of 2017.
