A Seven-year-old YouTuber, Ryan of Ryan ToysReview, is Forbes' Top-Earning Vlogger of the Year.

All but around £1 million of the income comes from adverts shown before videos, with the rest from sponsorship deals.

Ryan, who publishes videos most days with his mum, dad and twin sisters under the name Ryan ToysReview, is estimated to have earned £17 million ($22m) in the previous year.

The amount generated by sponsored posts is small compared with other top YouTubers, Forbes writes.

The toys featured in Ryan's videos often sell out.

The store, in August, began selling a wide range of toys and clothing called Ryan's World, and a video showing him and his parents searching for his own toys at a Walmart store has had 14 million views in three months.

Online sensation Jake Paul was second on Forbes' list, with £16.8 million.

The revenues from the Walmart deal are set to substantially increase Ryan's total earnings next year.

"Fifteen per cent of his earnings are put into a bank account to access when he becomes an adult", it reported.

But he still earned nearly $20m, three million more than in 2017.

This year's highest-paid YouTube star made $22 million in one year by playing with toys.

According to Forbes, US primary school student Ryan made a whopping $29.8 million this financial year, simply by reviewing toys on his YouTube channel Ryan Toys Review.

Although Jake beat out his older brother, Logan Paul (who sits at the number 10 spot, just underneath YouTube king Felix 'PewDiePie Kjellberg), he wasn't too happy with his high placement - especially concerning who he lost to.
