If you are a parent, or you have children under 10 living in your household, you are probably already aware of YouTuber Ryan Kaji, better known as just Ryan. This eight-year-old boy is the star of the YouTube channel called World Ryan (formerly known as Ryan ToysReview).
Ryan Kaji has an estimated net worth of approximately $ 30 million today. Apparently, he earned about $ 26 million through its channel in 2019 alone, after winning 11 million and $ 22 million in 2017 and 2018 respectively. Even after four years to do so, its popularity seems to be growing every day if its 24 million followers (and counting) are just to pass.
How did he do it?
He began his string – or rather, his parents did – in 2015 when he was just 5 years. It started as her opening toys and react. His parents just film him playing and having fun and upload to the Internet.
After four months of this, one of his videos of the opening of a giant surprise egg filled with toys went viral – and that was the beginning of his way to fame. After a year of making videos, its chain was so successful that his mother decided to leave his job as a high school chemistry teacher to focus on the full-time YouTube channel.
What about a “normal” childhood?
Despite being so famous – and rich, of course – Ryan’s parents are trying to make her young twin sisters and lead as normal a life as possible. They are very firm on the fact that Ryan should never feel like he worked. The goal from the beginning was to have fun and it still is. In fact, the only reason they started the canal was Ryan himself wanted to do after seeing other children online.
Currently, Ryan spends about 3-4 hours a week shooting videos, and this is reflected in the contents for about 30 videos in total. When considering his 3-4 hours of “work” mainly consist of him playing with toys and having fun, it’s not such a rotten business!
The global chain Ryan also includes other types of videos now, as DIYs, fun, educational videos and scientific experiments. The whole family is often in the vlog-style videos as well. His videos are also available in other languages such as Spanish and Japanese.
Apart from this, the family has its own separate vlog channel called Kaji family. Many videos on the two channels are quite similar, but the second channel has much of his family. His younger twin sisters, Emma and Kate, are also gaining popularity thanks to their brother.
Ryan grew up and it seems ignore the type of content that is mounted him rocketing to fame and his parents were always stressing never force him to do anything he would not. However, they were very clever in securing the brand they have created. What started as a little boy opening toys has evolved into something much larger and more diverse.
