9-year-old toy reviewer becomes highest paid YouTuber for third year in a row
His total number of subscribers went up from 23 million in 2019 to 27.6 million in 2020.
You probably watched television, went to school, and played a lot with your toys when you were 9-years-old.
Little Ryan Kaji does the same things but also features in videos for his channel 'Ryan's World'.
The only difference between him and other 9-year-olds is that Ryan makes millions of dollars every year by reviewing toys.
Ryan, who hails from Texas, is a toy reviewer on YouTube and his channel has more than 27 million subscribers.
Last year, he became the highest-paid YouTuber for the second year in a row, earning raised $26 million, a huge jump from his 2018 earnings of $17 million.
As expected, he has once again become the highest-earning YouTuber of the year after making nearly $30 million in 2020.
His total number of subscribers went up from 23 million in 2019 to 27.6 million in 2020. The channel, which is only 4 years old, has videos of the 9-year-old unboxing and playing with different kinds of toys.
This year, the child influencer raked in $29.5 million from his channel and another $200 million from his own range of toys.
That’s not all.
He has also signed a deal for a TV series on Nickelodeon, estimated to be worth millions of dollars.
He and his parents have nine different YouTube channels, each of which gets lots of views.
Ryan has been reviewing toys since he was three and has earned enough money in five years to start his own toy company.
But not everything was smooth-sailing for Ryan and his family.
Last year, Ryan’s parents were accused by consumer watchdog Truth in Advertising of not fully disclosing sponsored content. They said in a statement they always complied with advertising regulations.
Ryan isn't the only kid on the block with a big reputation for reviewing toys on social media.
Boram, a 7-year-old from South Korea, is popular on YouTube with over 30 million subscribers from two channels - Boram Tube Vlog and Boram Tube ToyReview.
