Meet The 8-Year-Old Who Made $26 Million Dollars This Year

I think it’s safe to say most people will never make $26 million dollars in their whole lifetime, let alone in one year.

Well, 8-year-old Ryan Kaji is not most people, and even though he’s just a child, he’s bringing home a whopping $26 million dollars this year!

Ryan started making toy unboxing videos at just 3-years-old with his family, and it didn’t take long until he shot to fame on YouTube.

His YouTube channel now boasts 23 million subscribers, but now Ryan’s brand has grown beyond just unboxing videos.

He has made his own show for Nickelodeon called Ryan’s Mystery Playdate, he has his own line of dental health products with Colgate, he has a brand partnership with Wonderful Halos, and he is working on helping Hardee’s relaunch meals for kids across their many locations.

Ryan is officially the highest-paid person on YouTube’s platform, which is pretty impressive for someone who is only 8!

He also earned the title of the highest-paid person last year as well, and he brought in $22 million in 2018.

This kid is really on a roll!
