Ryan Kaji, 9, is 2020's highest-paid YouTuber with $29.5 million earnings

 9-year-old YouTube star Ryan Kaji has topped the Forbes' list of Higher Paid YouTube Stars of 2020 for the third consecutive years.

Ryan, who is from Texas beats other well-known YouTube personalities like Jimmy Donaldson and Jeffree Star, earned a whopping $29.5 million from June 1, 2019 to June 1, 2020.

"He’s famous for so-called unboxing videos, in which he takes toys out of their packages and reviews them. The little guy now has a line of branded merchandise—toys, backpacks, toothpaste, more—at Target, Amazon and Walmart that did $200 million in sales last year, and a Nickelodeon series called Ryan’s Mystery Playdate," Forbes stated.

He was followed by Donaldson, a newcomer to the YouTube world, who racked up $24 million and three billion views.

Coming in at No. 3 on the list was Dude Perfect, a group of five brothers (Coby Cotton, Cory Cotton, Garret Hilbert, Cody Jones and Tyler Toney) who share videos of them partaking in child-like activities, like playing with lightsabers and Nerf Guns. They earned a close $23 million with 2.77 billion views.

Kaji's channel, which boasts 41.7 million subscribers (almost double that of his 23 million subscribers in 2019), includes videos of him unboxing toys (which is how it started, when he was just 3 years old), conducting DIY science experiments, playing games, teaching young viewers how to complete tasks like brushing their teeth and more.
