YouTube top earners: The seven-year-old making $22m

Highest-Paid YouTube Star Is 7 Years Old

The video featured Ryan opening and reviewing a box containing more than 100 toys from Pixar's Cars series.

This year's highest-paid YouTube star made $22 million in one year by playing with toys.

Forbes measured pre-tax earnings from 1 June 2017 to 1 June 2018, without fees for agents, managers and lawyers being deducted.

Since launching his main channel in 2015, Ryan has amassed more than 17 million followers and close to 26bn views.

The amount generated by sponsored posts is small compared with other top YouTubers, Forbes writes. Despite their large fanbases, it looks like Jake's infamously hawked merchandise can't top Ryan's collectible toy line, which is available for purchase at Wal-Marts across the country.

Sitapur: 2 men set woman ablaze after trying to molest her. Twice
In yet another shocking incident, a young woman was set on fire after alleged molestation bid in Uttar Pradesh's Sitapur . The organization has written to the state government and the police chief, seeking answers.

Forbes, which compiled the estimates, said his sponsorship income is relatively low as "the result not only of how few deals Ryan (or his family) chooses to accept, but also the fact that his pint-sized demographic isn't exactly all that flush".

His channel releases a new video every day and features Ryan along with his mother, father and twin sisters.

In August, Walmart began selling an exclusive range of toys and clothing called Ryan's World, and a video showing Ryan and his parents searching for his own toys at a Walmart store has had 14 million views in three months. Fifteen per cent of his earnings are put into a bank account to access when he becomes an adult.

Sports crew Dude Perfect made £15.7 million and Daniel Middleton, who specialises in the popular Minecraft game, was fourth with £14.5 million.
