Boy wonder: Seven-year-old earns £17m reviewing toys on YouTube

As per report, the little Ryan who reviews toys has been revealed as YouTube's highest-earning star, raking in $22m (£17.3m), having his own range of toys at USA store Walmart.

His channel, which involves him opening toys and then playing with them, has more than 17 million subscribers.

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

Of course, RyanToysReview isn't the sole property of seven-year-old Ryan, himself - the channel is run by his mother and father, who also appear in his videos, along with his twin sisters.
