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

This 7-year-old toy reviewer is the highest earning YouTuber earns Rs 155 crore a 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.

"Brand partnerships, a clothing line, millions of fans: What was once exclusively the province of superstar athletes and Hollywood A-listers now includes "Markiplier", one of the world's highest-earning YouTubers, who hauled in $ 17.5 million over our 12-month scoring period", Forbes said. Turns out it's actually child's play, because among others this one particular kid made over $22 million in a year, just by making YouTube videos. The line, which Ryan heavily promotes on his YouTube channel, features a variety of slimes and putties, Ryan action figures, T-shirts and toy cars.

Coming in at second place on Forbes' annual Highest Paid YouTube Stars list was former Disney actor Jake Paul, who took home an easy $29.2 million.

However, Jake Paul still managed to have a good year, earning a career-best $21.5 million, capturing the #2 spot by beating out DudePerfect by $1.5 million. According to Forbes, the boy made a revenue of over $22 million in 2018 with his videos on YouTube.

Capitalising on his success, the mini-mogul has now launched Ryan's World - a toy and apparel collection sold exclusively at Walmart.

Barcelona overcome PSV Eindhoven to top Group B
Barcelona sealed top spot in group B courtesy of a win against PSV Eindhoven at the Philips Stadium on Wednesday evening. The greatest player of his generation has scored yet another incredible goal for Barcelona in the Champions League .

"I'm entertaining, and I'm amusing", he told NBC recently.

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

As he is still a child, 15% of Ryan's earnings are put into a bank account that he can only access when he becomes a legal adult. But it turns out doing kind-of dumb but impressive tricks is still a viable way to make money, with five-man sports crew Dude Perfect coming in at #3 with U.S. $20 million ($27,315,100).

The top five was rounded out by make-up artist Jeffree Star, who made £14.1m.
