When you’re a kid, what’s the best part about getting a new toy? Yep, it’s opening the box, taking off all the packaging, and going through each and every little piece that it comes with. Well, today’s modern kid can see just about any toy being opened (usually by someone else) on YouTube, where “unboxing” videos have become the biggest rage (and are a huge money maker for these YouTubers).
Whether they’re hosted by kids or kids at heart (it may be surprising that grown adults open toys on camera, but the kids love it), unboxers are not only keeping our kids entertained, but they are also dictating, in many ways, what craze our children will get into next.
The kids are gonna watch them, so if they are, might as well be something that won’t make you want to pull your hair out. Here are 8 unboxers who make videos that won’t drive you nuts. Probably.
You can find slews of articles on this wildly successful unboxer, who has been at it for a few years now, recording videos of just her hands opening toys as she softly narrates the process. No one really knows who the woman is behind these videos, but she’s undoubtedly one of the wealthiest unboxers out there (she is also behind the channel Blu Toys, which features unboxing videos aimed at preschoolers and young school-aged kids).
Hailey loves to do everything from opening surprise eggs and jumping on inflatable toys to playing Disney princess dress up and with other brand-specific toys (Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol, etc.). And you can watch as she invites little ones to join her in all of the unboxing, unpackaging, kid-friendly YouTube fun.
