Seven year-old Ryan, biggest earner on You Tube, makes $22m

Ryan Toys Review is the highest earning You Tube channel

Forbes' list of "Highest-Paid YouTube Stars 2018" is topped by Ryan of Ryan Toysreview, who makes his millions by reviewing everything from toys, cars, Legos through simple home-made videos that are then uploaded on his YouTube channel by his parents.

Ryan's twin sisters haven't been left out of the fun either: they feature in some videos on a related YouTube channel called Ryan's Family Review.

The channel was started back in the year 2015 and the most prolific video that threw Ryan into stardom was one of Ryan reviewing over 100 toys in from the Pixar movie Cars. Along with that, the young YouTuber has a 17.3 million follower count.

The Daily Mail reports that Ryan's videos have become so successful that he now even has his own line of toys.

Almost all of Ryan's money, or about $21 million, comes from pre-roll advertising on his channels "Ryan ToysReview" and "Ryan's Family Review". It seems that Ryan's fan base watch a lot of videos, but do not necessarily subscribe to his channel.

Online sensation Jake Paul was second on Forbes' list, with £16.8 million.

According to Forbes magazine, his ToysReview pipped Jake Paul by $500,000 for the 12 months to June.

Asked why kids liked watching his videos, Ryan replied: "Because I'm entertaining and I'm amusing".

Jack's channel has over 10 billion views and over 20.7 million subscribers. The smaller portion of Ryan's income came from sponsored posts.

Capitalising on his success, the mini-mogul has now launched Ryan's World - a toy and apparel collection sold exclusively at Walmart.

Markiplier, Vanoss Gaming, Jacksepticeye, PewDiePie and Logan Paul rounded out the top 10.

Sports crew Duke Perfect made £15.7m, while Daniel Middleton, a British gamer who plays Minecraft, came fourth with £14.5m. Meanwhile, makeup guru Jeffree Star slid into fifth place with total earnings of $18 million for the year.
