An adorable little boy made a whopping $11 million this year, all from playing with the coolest new toys and reviewing them. So, basically he has every kid's (and adult's) dream job.


Six-year-old Ryan is a major YouTube star with over 10 millions subscribers. Since he was three years old, Ryan's parents have been taking videos of him "reviewing" toys for his YouTube channel, "Ryan ToysReview." Kids all over the world watch Ryan play with toys, and they can't get enough.

Like this video from two years ago, which was Ryan's first to go viral:

According to Forbes list of highest paid entrepreneurs on YouTube, Ryan came in at number eight, having brought in $11 million in revenue between June 1, 2016 and June 1, 2017.


And the videos are so simple. They're a bunch of edited together clips of Ryan and all of his charisma playing with toys or doing other fun things like playing hide and seek with his siblings or having kid-friendly eating competitions.

Ryan's channel just happened to gain a lot of traction, and now he's living his best live playing with toys and having a great time. He also happens to bring in tons of business for the manufactures of the toys he loves.

"If a product gets 10 million, 20 millions views, and you see that Ryan loves it, or other kids love it, it has a huge impact at retail," Jim Silver, CEO of the review site Toys, Tots, Pets, and More, told the Verge last year.


Between all the toys Ryan's parents buy him to review and the ones he is sent for free from companies, the family donates most of the toys to charity after he reviews them, according to his channel's "about" page.

Pretty impressive!
