6-Year-Old Made Millions Reviewing Toys

If you have ever hoped to get rich off of your YouTube channel, only to give up when you barely made enough to buy a cup of coffee within a year, maybe you shouldn't give up hope. Apparently, making money on YouTube is so easy a child can do it. At least one child has made a fortune.

The YouTube Channel Ryan ToysReview placed eighth in YouTube's highest-ranking earners. This is quite an achievement for anyone, but it's especially a big deal for Ryan because he's only six years old.

Ryan's last name and city of residence are protected because he's so young, but he's been on YouTube for about two years now. He used to love watching toy reviews, and asked his mother one day why he couldn't play with toys for YouTube videos.

"Yeah, we can do that," his mother responded. "Then, we took him to the store to get his very first toy—I think it was a Lego train set—and it all started from there," she says.

Mainly his mom just thought it would be fun for family and friends who live all over the globe to see Ryan hamming it up for the camera while he plays. But as it turned out, lots of viewers wanted to watch Ryan and get his opinion on popular toys.

In his most popular video, Ryan is handed a giant egg that contains Pixar Cars toys. He's gotten more than 800 million views, which is staggering.

A similar clip in which Ryan opens an egg full of Transformer toys has gotten 80 million views.

In some videos, instead of playing with toys, Ryan and his dad do something creative. Sometimes they accept food challenges. In another video, they went to a park and played a game of 'the floor is lava', and tried to get across without being horribly burned.

In just two years, Ryan has raked in more than $11 million for his videos. He's one of the highest-earning YouTube video makers out there.

Ryan is having a blast with his business. He gets to do all kinds of fun things for the camera, gets to spend a lot of quality time with his parents, and gets a lot of praise and encouragement from his viewers. His parents say that they’re careful not to let their filming schedule interfere with his school schedule, though. But for Ryan, work is play, so he doesn’t mind at all.

Ryan's mother, on the other hand, is putting in full days. She quit her job as a high school chemistry teacher in order to work on Ryan's channel full-time.

"Right now, he loves making videos," his mom said last year. "Every time I tell him we’re going to film, he gets so excited. As long as he’s loving it and it doesn’t disrupt his daily routine, we plan on continuing. But the moment he’s not having fun any more, that’s when it will be time to stop."
