Who doesn’t love nerf guns? Who doesn’t love YouTube? Put them together, add two young kids as the stars, and you know what you have?
A great show to watch with your son or daughter. I’m talking about Extreme Toys, a channel on YouTube that started back in 2015. Two brothers represent the main actors – Ethan and Cole. Episodes run about 8 to 10 minutes in length and this has turned into my son’s favorite series.
This will blow your mind…
- Top rated shows that air on major networks will score ratings somewhere between seven and twelve million viewers.
- In one week, this video posted on the Extreme Toys channel scored 1.7MM views.
- Their more popular episodes garner 50MM to 80MM views over the course of a year.
- The total number of views, since it launched five years ago, equates to 2,033,024,872. That’s two BILLION+ views!
I highly recommend checking out their content, but bear in mind some episodes can be scary for kids six-years-old or younger. Use your best judgment.
Check out this one that we watched recently, you’ll see why it is so popular. And frankly, it’s refreshing to see a series like this take off in an era of unlimited content. It proves ingenuity and creativity can translate into success.
