About Ryan Kaji
Ryan Kaji is an American YouTuber that’s best known for his large following online on his channel “Ryan’s World”. Only at the age of nine, he is not only one of the youngest internet personalities but also one of the most followed children on the video-sharing platform.
How Did Ryan Kaji Get So Rich?
The internet sensation became rich primarily from his first channel, created in March 2015 when he was just three years and seven months old. Just a day after his channel was created, Ryan’s first video on YouTube was uploaded. The video is titled “Kid playing with toys Lego Duplo Number Train” and as of now, it has more than 51 million views. Less than a year later, his account boomed and on January 4, 2016, he gathered his first 1 million subscribers. By the end of 2016, he was on his way to obtain 6 million subscribers and at the time, he was able to earn his first $1 million.
In early 2017, Ryan’s parents signed a contract with the startup media company “PocketWatch”. Shortly after, thanks to his presence online and large following, he signed million-dollar deals with the companies “Toys Review” and “Pocket Watch”, thanks to which he created his first mobile app – “Tag with Ryan”. Starting in 2019, his own television series for preschoolers named “Ryan’s Mystery Playdate” began airing. Towards the end of that year, he also had his own video game released – “Race with Ryan”. The racing game was created with Outright Games and is available on all console platforms and for Microsoft Windows devices. Overall, he was able to gather more than $22 million from all of his business ventures.
Why Is He So Famous?
Ryan Kaji is famous for his thousands of funny and interactive videos online. Ryan’s full name is Ryan Kaji Guan. He was born on October 6, 2011, in Dallas, Texas. He’s of Japanese-Vietnamese descent, with his father, Shion Kaji, coming from Japan while his mother is from Vietnam. Ryan has two twin sisters, Emma and Kate Kaji that can be occasionally seen on his channel. His family moved to California in the mid-2010s, just when the internet sensation began his career online.
He first began making YouTube videos in March 2015, with his channel being created on March 16, 2015. His biggest inspirations at the time were review channels that focus on kids’ toys. When Ryan developed an interest, his mother helped him with the creation of the videos. Ultimately, she left her job as a chemistry teacher in high school and began working on his channel full-time. Instead of using his last name, Guan, his parents decided to use his real surname for his channel, Kaji.
What Makes Him So Successful?
Being an active YouTuber that runs not one but eight channels on the video-sharing platform is the main reason why Ryan is so triumphant. The main reason why Ryan is such a fan favorite, especially among kids around his age, is his exciting personality, and diverse videos. For the past four and a half years, he has uploaded many toy review videos on toys such as Cars, Trails, and Playdoh to name a few. In addition to these, he has published personal vlogs and unboxing videos as well as videos that focus on innocent childhood antics and overwhelming consumerism.
Uploading nearly 2,000 videos on all of his channels played a pivotal role in the success of this youngster. Ever since he first joined the video-sharing platform, he has been on a roll and even has two videos that surpassed 1 billion views. His most-watched video is the five-minutes long “HUGE EGGS Surprise Toys Challenge with Inflatable water slide” that was uploaded on April 13, 2016, and now has more than 2 billion views. Overall, all of his videos have gathered nearly 45 billion views in total, which makes his channel the eighth most-watched of all time.
When it comes to YouTubers that have continuously broken records, Ryan Kaji is certainly one of them. Only at the age of nine, this talented YouTuber has accumulated more than 27 million subscribers and nearly 50 billion views on his account. As if these numbers aren’t impressive enough, most recently, Ryan was announced as the highest-paid YouTube star who earned more than $26 million in 2020 alone.
