Around March 2015, while watching the YouTube channels like EvanTubeHD, it occurred to the young Ryan that he too wanted to feature on YouTube. His parents then decided to launch a toy review channel called Ryan’s ToysReview but took a new on-screen surname Kaji. The channel’s episodes comprised three-year-old Ryan unboxing and reviewing the toys. This was a very innovative way of looking at toys, and the Kaji’s had very diligently chosen a perfect host for toy reviews.
Ryan is all of eight, and his fan following is huge. He has two siblings, twins – Emma and Kate. He is studying in the first standard in a school in Texas. Nothing much is known about his school or his friend circle. There are a couple of episodes on Ryan’s Family Review channel that show Ryan prepping for school and his excitement before the summer recess.

Loan, Ryan’s mother had to quit her teaching profession to aid Ryan in his shoots.
Kaji’s parents signed a deal with PocketWatch, a startup children’s media company (founded in 2016 by Chris Williams and Albie Hecht) in 2017. The deal made PocketWatch the official merchandise marketing agency for Ryan’s YouTube channels. In a year’s time, in 2018, Ryan ToysReview created an app called Tag with Ryan compatible with Android and iOS, in cooperation with PocketWatch and WildWorks.

The humungous success of the YouTube channels has earned the YouTube sensation, Ryan a fortune. Revenue generated from YouTube varies, but for popular channels, the pay is around $7 per 1000 clicks, and Kaji seems to have made the most of it.
However, the channel has faced some issues lately with Truth in Advertising and the Federal Trade Commission filing a complaint on 28 August 2019 claiming that “Nearly 90 per cent of the Ryan ToysReview videos have included at least one paid product recommendation aimed at preschoolers, a group too young to distinguish between a commercial and a review”. However, no judgement has been passed on the complaint, and Ryan’s popularity has hardly dwindled, proving he is here to stay!
