Forbes released their list of Highest-Paid YouTubers 2018 which included Ryan ToysReview, Logan Paul, Markiplier, and many other notable names.
7-year-old Ryan ToysReview has built a multimillion-dollar empire simply by filming himself unboxing toys and giving his honest and equally adorable review. According to Forbes, he made over $22 million this year alone. He’s acquired an impressive 17.3 million followers and 26 billion views which is more than any other YouTuber on the list which also includes both Paul brothers, Jeffree Star, and PewDiePie.
Ryan makes a large portion of his income from the ads that play during his videos but he’s also the reason why toy aisles in many stores are sporting empty shelves. His audience ranges from small children to those in middle school and his excitement is contagious enough to convince the kids and their parents to shell out big bucks for whatever toy he unboxes on his channel. But if you ask Ryan, he thinks the reason for his popularity is much more simple than that.
“I’m entertaining and I’m funny,” Ryan shared in an interview with NBC.
