When asked how that could be possible, Marissa DiBartolo, senior editor at The Toy Insider, told ABC News: “If you’re making $5 per 1,000 impressions, and you get 1 million views, and you post one new video for every day for 365 days, you’re talking about close to $2 million already.” The channel inspired other kids too! Ryan of Ryan ToysReview reportedly got much of his inspiration from watching Hulyan Maya and eventually asked his mom, “How come I’m not on YouTube when all the other kids are?” according to The Verge.

These days, the channel also includes “toy reviews, silly comedy skits [and]epic mini movies,” all produced by their dad, Bob. “It’s fair to say the girls’ college funds are sorted,” Bob told Stuff in 2017. In 2016, The sisters appeared in Tubefilter in “YouTube Millionaires,” a column that covers influencers who “recently crossed the one million subscriber mark.” Jillian was thrilled about it:

“It makes me feel really happy to know so many people are watching our videos, and I hope our videos are making them smile too!” In 2014, Bob told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: “I hope it’s giving them the idea that they can create things instead of just being passive viewers.”

In January 2016, The Daily Dot featured Evan, a young man they hailed as “YouTube’s youngest millionaire.” Born in 2005, Evan knows is very crafty with droid inventor kits, magic wands, and Kinder Surprise Eggs. He’s also earned quite a small fortune from that. According to Business Insider, Evan makes roughly $1.3 million a year with his YouTube channel EvanTubeHD, which successfully focuses on toy reviews, challenges, and science experiments. It is not by chance that Evan’s dad Jared manages a video production company, which accounts for EvanTubeHD’s super efficient production values. In 2013, Jared told Newsweek they employ “a dedicated sales team” to negotiate the business side of things: “The majority of the revenue is generated by the ads placed on the video itself.” Meanwhile, Evan wasn’t aware of how much of a success his channel has amounted to: “For the most part, Evan goes about the day like any other second-grader,” Jared said. “He goes to school, does his homework, hangs out with his friends, attends karate class.” Afterward, there’s “computer time,” which evidently involves Evan making tons of money while playing with toys.

The Verge gleefully reviews his songs, Time featured the Hide Your Girlfriend” meme he created, and he’s already written That’s a Rap!, his first memoir. According to The Daily Dot, MattyB — born Matthew David Morris in 2004 — also writes and performs original songs such as “Friend Zone” and “Life is Unfair.” Unfortunately, online celebrities often find themselves verbally abused. In 2014, MattyB got strong reactions from his cover of Notorious B.I.G.’s “Juicy.” Ironically, MattyB dedicated the song to his haters: “This song is dedicated to every doubter who ever told me I wouldn’t amount to nothin’,” Matty B raps, “to all the people who put me down and made fun of me when I was just trying to go after something I really wanted.” Luckily, Matty wasn’t very affected by the drama, “I get so much love from my fans it is hard to ever be anything but positive,” he told The Daily Dot.

As MSN reports, their channel, CharlisCraftyKitchen, reportedly averaged roughly 29 million views — and $127,777 in revenue — every month in 2015. That adds up to more than a million dollars annually.  The sisters bring home the bacon by whipping up treats such as Frozen-inspired popsicles, “grape caterpillar and apple turtle fruit snacks,” and cookie dough ice cream. Keep in mind that hat last recipe calls for a box of Nerds to be poured into the mix, along with rainbow sprinkles. (“The sprinkles should add some sweetness,” Charli observes.) By 2017, the sisters were already expanding their focus with their animated online show Crafty Kingdom, which chronicles the misadventures of “princesses Charli and Ashlee”, which featured them bouncing through their candy kingdom, baking all the while. Nevertheless, after pouring most of their energy into a new channel, The Kelly Sisters (launched March 11, 2017), Charli and Ash appear to be on an indefinite hiatus.

Overseen by parents Kristine and Matt, Family Fun Pack specializes in wholesome summer camp content. The kids can be seen enjoying Disneyland, meeting with chittering dolphins at Dolphin Quest, and getting their fix of sugar at  The Museum of Ice Cream. To protect their privacy, the siblings’ last names aren’t known. In December 2016, Kristine told Forbes it’s important “not [to]share too much [about personal details].” As for financial details, MSN claims Family Fun Pack’s net worth was $15 million in 2017, and that number is likely even higher now. In February 2018, Variety reported FFP was teaming up with StyleHaul Network, a company that “create[s]new opportunities for entertainment development, licensing and merchandising, publishing and gaming.” The inevitable TV show is also in the works. “We never knew we were going to get this big,” Kristine told Forbes, emphasizing that all those slime wars, sleepovers, and pizza  parties are, in fact, extremely hard work. “There’s a misconception that YouTubers are lazy. We work really, really hard. We work every single day of the week.” I admit that taking care of that many kids, YouTube channel or not, must be really tiring!

For Ryan, playtime is his way of earning now.
