Saying that YouTube star Ryan, star of the channel Ryan ToyReview, is popular would be a huge understatement. Ryan is arguably one of the most famous and well-known 7-year-olds in the world. And how could he not be? His YouTube channel has somewhere around 18 million subscribers, and over 19 billion video views. Ryan seems like a pretty typical little boy, which makes him appeal to kids and parents alike. And on top of his insanely popular channel, he has merchandise sold through places like Walmart. So, it's no surprise that his net worth is in the millions of dollars.
It has been reported extensively that Ryan is one of the highest paid YouTube stars, slowly moving up the list every year. Based on his earnings from the 2016-2017 period, he was the eighth highest paid YouTuber. During that time, he brought in somewhere around 11 million dollars. But then, during the 2017-2018 period, his earnings doubled to about 22 million dollars.
This made him the highest paid YouTube star for the earnings period.
Much of that increase was thanks to his merchandise deal. The line includes toys, like his own version of the surprise eggs that made him popular. But it's not just eggs and slime toys. If your kiddo likes Ryan, there is also apparel including tee shirts. His videos are still the bulk of his income, because of the ad revenue generated from those videos. And his channel posts new content pretty much daily, which means a lot of ads.
While we're just about at the halfway point of 2019, it's safe to assume that Ryan will be making a good amount more. Because in addition to his YouTube channel (technically, his family has two, Ryan FamilyReview being the other) and his merchandise, he now has a show on Nickelodeon. Factoring in all of this, his net worth has jumped significantly. For 2019, it could be somewhere around 80 million dollars.

Ryan and his family have smartly built themselves an empire. Even if he decides to quit in the next year or two as he gets older, his family could be very financially secure. Of course, we don't know much about the family other than what we see on YouTube. But it seems that despite his fame, Ryan is a typical little boy. An incredibly rich little boy, but that's the benefit of fame.
