A 7-year-old boy who reviews toys has been revealed as YouTube's highest-earning star, raking in $NZ 31.7million.

Let's just take a moment to let that sink in shall we?

According to Forbes, about $21 million of the channel's earning came from pre-roll advertising on his channels Ryan ToysReview and Ryan's Family Review.

While his income has doubled in the past year, it is expected to rise sharply again after he began selling an exclusive range of toys and clothing with United States supermarket Walmart.

Forbes said almost all of the money came from pre-roll advertising, explaining "when views go up, so do these automated ad dollars". The remaining $1 million from sponsored posts.

While Jake Paul moved up six places to second, his brother Logan Paul has tumbled down the Forbes rankings this year to 10th place with $14.5m - still $3m more than 2017.

He was followed by Dude Perfect at #3, DanTDM at #4 and Jeffree star at #5.

The school child has out-earned some of YouTube's biggest names, including Jake Paul, PewDiePie and Logan Paul.

Since launching his main channel in 2015, Ryan has amassed more than 17 million followers and close to 26 billion views.

"I'm entertaining and I'm amusing", Ryan recently told NBC interview, explaining his appeal.

A video of Ryan visiting Walmart to look at his own product range has been viewed 14 million times.

Ryan's parents are reportedly putting 15 percent of his earnings away into a bank account until he is a legal adult.

A video titled "Top 10 Science Experiments you can do at home for kids" starring the three children has had more than 26 million views.

Last year's top earner, Minecraft gamer Daniel Middleton, slipped to fourth place this year with $22.4m.
