Youtube star, 8, makes £17.3 MILLION a year reviewing toys – and he's just landed his own TV show

Schoolboy Ryan, star of Ryan ToysReview, is set to star in a new series on Nickelodeon after shooting to fame by posting videos of himself unboxing toys.

He’s now one of the most popular YouTubers on the planet, having made more money last year than any other, according to Forbes.

Ryan’s show – called Ryan’s Mystery Playdate – will follow him and his family, as well as a bunch of his mates, as they solve mysteries and, unsurprisingly, enjoy playdates. Think a 21st century Famous Five.

It’s expected to run for 20 episodes, according to TubeFilter.

In a statement, Nickelodeon president Brian Robbins said: “Ryan is a kid who happens to be one of YouTube's towering giants, with millions of followers who are going to love seeing him and his family on Nickelodeon in a totally new and fun way.”

Megastar Ryan, whose surname is a closely guarded secret, and his family, who live near Houston, Texas, started up the channel in March 2015.

Then four, Ryan was a big fan of toy-review videos and asked his mum and dad if he could post his own reviews on YouTube.

In July 2015, a clip of Ryan opening up and giving his verdict on a box of more than 100 toys from Disney Pixar's Cars series went viral, receiving almost 935 million views.

His mum then quit her job as a chemistry teacher to help develop his channel.

It’s since grown into an empire, branching out into spin-off channels, digital characters and the odd food review.

In August 2018, Ryan teamed up with American retailer Walmart to produce his own toy line called Ryan’s World.

The toys Ryan features in his videos are apparently donated to a local charity, while 15 per cent of his massive earnings are being put into a savings account until he becomes a legal adult.

Ryan, who has only been making YouTube videos since 2015, makes just shy of £2,000 an hour, and slightly less than a dollar every single second.

Ryan’s twin sisters also feature in some videos on a related YouTube channel called Ryan's Family Review.

A video titled ‘Top 10 Science Experiments you can do at home for kids’ starring the three children has had more than 26 million views.

We previously told how Ryan makes more than an average Brit's annual salary in just 14 hours.
