Ryan's World, formerly Ryan ToysReview, is a YouTube channel, launched in March 2015, which stars a then-preschooler cheery little child, Ryan Kaji, unboxing and reviewing toys.

Seems boring to you? Guess again. He is considered the youngest YouTube celebrity and his channel is third most viewed (23 billion!) in the world, thanks to children being the Target Audience and getting their hands on technology more frequently than ever. The channel has set the Guinness World Record for the most viewed YouTube channel starring someone born post-2000. No, seriously. In other words, the Trope Codifier of children's toy review channels on YouTube.

Besides toy unboxing videos, he also stars in videos showing him in playtime, visiting fun points of interests, doing harmless challenges, making DIY things, and performing Edutainment. There are animations and children's songs to watch too. Pretty entertaining for a child to watch and love.

  • Kaji Family, formely Ryan's Family Review is a Vlog Series, launched in November 2016, showcasing the daily life of and fun moments in Ryan and his family. The channel also used to be a host for Ryan's Lets Plays, with Roblox being played usually, until VTubers (see below) was launched.
  • Gus the Gummy Gator is a Puppet Show and Vlog Series, launched in February 2017, featuring a gummy-loving alligator, Gus, who does entertaining activities, participates in songs and stories, and does Lets Plays occassionally.
