Seven-year-old Ryan named YouTubes highest-earning star

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

Wrong - according to Forbes, Ryan has made £17.2 million in one year through his YouTube channel which features everything from reviews of "Slime Blasters" to educational videos such as "How Do Tornados Form?".

Ryan whose parents post his videos on the channel Ryan's Toy Reviews, is YouTube's top earner for 2018.

The short, simple videos of Ryan playing and giggling over toys have won over millions around the world. The video featured Ryan opening and reviewing a box containing more than 100 toys from Pixar's Cars series.

The estimate by Forbes magazine found that Ryan of Ryan ToysReview pipped Jake Paul by $US500,000 for the 12 months to June.

The rest of Forbes' top 10 highest-paid YouTube stars list is made up of much older people, including the likes of brothers Jake and Logan Paul, five-man sports crew Dude Perfect, makeup artist-beauty mogul Jeffree Star, and five gamers: Daniel "DanTDM" Middleton, Mark "Markiplier" Fischbach, Evan "VanossGaming" Fong, Seán "Jacksepticeye" McLoughlin, and Felix "PewDiePie" Kjellberg. He was placed 8th Top Earner previous year.

His videos have a total of nearly 26 billion views over three years, with the most popular video on his channel seen 1.6 billion times, and the less-watched videos attracting at least 30 million views each.

Asked why kids liked watching his videos, Ryan replied: "Because I'm entertaining and I'm amusing".

It's understood almost all of the mini-millionaire's money came from pre-roll advertising, with Forbes explaining "when views go up, so do these automated ad dollars". Forbes notes that, not surprisingly, Ryan's fans are mostly other elementary school-aged kids.

The amount generated by sponsored posts is small compared with other top YouTubers, Forbes writes.
