A six-year-old named Ryan who plays with toys – mesmerizing millions of children across the globe – has become a multi-millionaire, according to Forbes magazine’s just-out list of highest paid YouTube entrepreneurs. He was ranked number eight, having brought in $11 million in revenue between June 1, 2016, and June 1, 2017, before management fees and taxes, of course.
Since he was three years old, Ryan’s parents have been capturing videos of him opening toys, playing with them and “reviewing” them for videos posted on their YouTube channel, “Ryan ToysReview.”
Ryan’s last name, and his place of residence are a closely guarded secret, and not without reason.
