This might be hard to believe, but while you and I are working our fingers to the bone and barely getting our bills paid, this adorable 5 year old is making a mint, by simply opening toys on Youtube!
The family’s channel, Ryan ToysReview, was created in March of 2015, and initially, didn’t get many views. But about four months in, the channel published this video, and views started doubling with every passing month. Ryan’s mom, who has so far declined to share her name, left her job as a high school chemistry teacher to work on the YouTube channel full time.
For the last 18 weeks and counting, Ryan ToysReview has been the most popular channel on YouTube in the US, and the second largest in the world, a bigger attraction than household names like PewDiePie and Justin Bieber, and media empires like BuzzFeed, The Tonight Show, and the WWE. That viewership translates to around $1 million a month in advertising revenue alone.
For the first time ever, I wondered what on earth my family could possibly do that would attract this much interest and revenue! What about you? Does this inspire you or make you wonder if parents exploit their kids too much for money? What do you think?!
