This 7-Year-Old Boy Makes $22 Million a Year Reviewing Toys on YouTube

By

It's no secret that YouTube stars can make a lot of money doing what they love. Logan Paul is estimated to have made $14.5 million in 2018, even after all the controversy that the 23-year-old faced. Gaming YouTuber PewDiePie, who had his own share of controversy, made $15.5 million in the same year. But those big names only reached the 10th and 9th spots on Forbes' annual list of YouTube creators who are making the most money.  

As it turns out, the highest-earning YouTube star in the world is still in elementary school. Ryan, the 7-year-old host of Ryan ToysReview, reviews toys to an audience of millions and jumped from No. 8 to No. 1 on Forbes' list from 2017 to 2018. The channel, run by family, generated about $22 million in pretax income from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018, according to Forbes. That's up $11 million from the previous year, and just ahead of Jake Paul, who made $21.5 million in the same period.
