YouTube top earners: The 7-year-old making $31.7m

Forbes top-earning vlogger is only 7 earns $22 million

A seven-year-old boy has been named YouTube's highest-earning star after raking in nearly $30m in the last financial year.

Ryan, from Ryan ToysReview, made the hefty sum between June 2017 and June 2018.

Ryan, whose last name hasn't been made public to protect his identity, beat top YouTubers such as Logan Paul, Felix Kjellberg (PewDiePie fame) and Markiplier.

Seven-year-old Ryan has been named YouTube's highest earning star. In fact, there is also a category called "Ryan's Family Review Videos Family Vlog and Family Fun Events and Family Vacations Trips" wherein Ryan and his parents also review the toys in a fun way.

Coming in at second place on Forbes' annual Highest Paid YouTube Stars list was former Disney actor Jake Paul, who took home an easy $29.2 million.

Ryan of the Ryan ToysReview channel is topping this year's Forbes list, released Monday.

Boy, 8, who plays with toys is earning millions as the world’s highest paid YouTuber

Asked by NBC why kids liked watching his videos, Ryan - who is now 8 - replied: "Because I'm entertaining and I'm amusing".

Other than $1 million earned from sponsored posts, the entirety of that $22 million came from pre-roll ads that play before his videos.

"Ryan is part of the YouTube trend of unboxing, in which content creators film themselves opening up toys, tech products and other consumer goods, explaining different features and, in Ryan's case, screaming and giggling with enthusiastic delight as he does so, ' the Forbes said". The report states that almost 96 percent of his revenue came from ads while the remaining amount came from sponsored posts.

The toys featured in Ryan's videos often sell out.

The store, in August, began selling a wide range of toys and clothing called Ryan's World, and a video showing him and his parents searching for his own toys at a Walmart store has had 14 million views in three months.
