9-Year-Old Ryan Kaji Becomes Highest Paid Youtuber of the Year for the Third Time


A nine-year-old YouTuber has made nearly $30m this year from “unboxing” and reviewing toys and games; earning him the title of the highest-paid YouTuber for the third year running.


The child influencer, whose YouTube channel goes by the name of Ryan’s World, is an interactive space for children to get their hands on some cool science experiments, music videos, skits, challenges; as well as some DIY arts and crafts — that too straight from the comfort of their homes!

Residing in Texas, the little one not only made $29.5m from his YouTube channel, but also a further estimated $200m from Ryan’s World branded toys and clothing; including Marks & Spencer pyjamas. He also recently signed a deal for his own TV series on Nickelodeon.

His most popular video, Huge Eggs Surprise Toys Challenge, has more than 2 billion views, making it one of the 60 most-viewed videos ever on YouTube.

As an influencer, many companies reached out to Ryan so he could unbox, introduce and play with the latest toy in the market, for other children to see.

However, according to The Guardian, owing to his fast-paced popularity, the influencer has become his own brand, being put into Walmart, Target and Amazon as its own force.

However, Kaji is not the only one to make it to the list. According to Forbes List of Highest Paid Youtube Stars of 2020, in second place was Jimmy Donaldson, the 22-year-old, better known as Mr Beast, who earned an estimated $24m and was the a new entry to the YouTube rich-list.

Following in third, fourth and fifth place are Dude Perfect, $23m, Rhett and Link, $20m; and Markiplier, earning a sum of $19.5 million respectively.
