Seven-year-old YouTuber made £17.2m in one year

Seven-year old Ryan the star of his own You Tube channel Ryan ToysReview

As per report, the little Ryan who reviews toys has been revealed as YouTube's highest-earning star, raking in $22m (£17.3m), having his own range of toys at United States store Walmart.

Ryan, who publishes videos most days with his mum, dad and twin sisters under the name Ryan ToysReview, is estimated to have earned £17 million ($22m) in the past year.

The remaining $1 million came from sponsored posts.

Of course, RyanToysReview isn't the sole property of seven-year-old Ryan, himself - the channel is run by his mother and father, who also appear in his videos, along with his twin sisters.

The toys featured in one of the channel's videos can sell out instantly. Earlier this year, he even got his own range of toys and clothing, called Ryan's World, at Walmart, which will likely boost his earnings even higher next year.

As he is still a child, 15 per cent of Ryan's earnings are put into a bank account that he will be able to access when he turns 18.

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.

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.

The top five was rounded off by American makeup artist Jeffree Star, who made £14.1m.

Although Jake beat out his older brother, Logan Paul (who sits at the number 10 spot, just underneath YouTube king Felix 'PewDiePie Kjellberg), he wasn't too happy with his high placement - especially concerning who he lost to.
