Toys Review for kids by a kid!

While most six-year-olds are busy playing dress-ups and watching cartoons, one USA kindergartener is raking in millions by reviewing toys online.

Year-old kid earns $11m, makes it to forbes list

From playing video games to pulling pranks to a bunch of bros who perform next to a guy in a panda costume-seriously-combined these top-tier earners pulled in $127 million from June 2016 through June 2017. Pegged as YouTube's youngest vlogging success story, the six-year-old began his journey in March 2015 when, after watching other toy reviews - which were initially only done by adults - he asked his parents why he couldn't review toys himself.

The richest YouTuber in the world, Minecraft player Daniel Middleton, is an uber-celebrity among 11-year-olds, yet would have little trouble walking down any street in the world without being recognised.

Ryan's parents posted his first video in March 2015 after the YouTube-obsessed preschooler wanted to know why he couldn't dish on toys online like other kids, per a Tubefilter interview from a year ago. In the beginning, Ryan ToysReview was not doing a great business until a July 2015 video went viral. In the clip, which has so far generated over 800 million views, Ryan opened a huge "Easter egg" containing over 100 toys from Pixar's "Cars" series.

Ryan's mother Loann quit her job as a high school science teacher to work on the channel full-time, and it's a move that's paid off. The homemade production value of his reviews, coupled with his age and the direct connect he is able to make with his viewers (often from the same age group) affords him a unique air of authenticity. His dad Sean works as a structural engineer. There were also allegations that the family fake the number of views using bots. Since its March 2015 inception, the channel has garnered almost 17 billion total video views.
