Kids’ YouTube channels are taking over the internet, and A for Adley is a budding creator steadily growing her presence. Behind her meteoric rise to fame, Adley May McBride’s parents have played a pivotal role. With their support, the young star uploads engaging, family-friendly videos that showcase her playful interactions with her family. As of 2023, A for Adley has a net worth of $19 million.
On August 6, 2015, Adley May McBride was born to Jennifer and Shaun Todd McBride in Utah, USA. Jenny is a part-time ultrasound technician, while Shaun is a content creator and entrepreneur.
Known online under the alias “Shonduras”, Shaun initially gained fame through his creative finger drawings on Snapchat. Eventually, he transitioned to YouTube, laying the foundation for a thriving media empire.
Adley is the couple’s eldest child, followed by her younger siblings, Niko Bear and Navey May. Currently, Adley is seven years old and only started elementary school in 2021.
Adley made her debut on camera in one of her father’s videos and it was only a matter of time before she got her own channel. The A for Adley YouTube account was created in October 2017 and a majority of the early videos involved playing with her parents.
Later on, her siblings joined in the fun. Their family bonding made for content that was enjoyed by kids around the world. The channel’s top videos include “THE FLOOR IS LAVA CHALLENGE,” “COPS vs ROBBERS,” and “Adley has a STICKER POX.” Adley’s channel took off and has become more popular than her father. The red-haired YouTuber now has 5.59 million subscribers.
Outside of YouTube, Adley’s managers (her parents) have built up various income streams. First, they secured brand deals and collaborations, getting opportunities to work with brands such as Mattel and Zuru.
They then created merchandise for their daughter and set up an online store at ShopAdley.com. There, fans can buy everything from adorable tees, sweaters, beanies, stickers, puzzles, and water bottles. With the exposure from YouTube, sales are strong and customers are making repeat orders.
In 2023, one of Shaun’s companies, The Spacestation, helped the McBride family make a film titled “A for Adley: Lost in the Movies.” The release date is still unclear, but they are selling tickets as it will be on the big screen.
A for Adley’s Earnings
Based on data from SocialBlade.com, Adley’s channel averages over 160 million views every month. Assuming a reasonable $4 CPM, young Adley makes around $10 million every year from YouTube ads alone. This sums up $27,000 in daily earnings!
As previously mentioned, YouTube is only just one revenue stream. The little content creator makes money through brand deals and selling merchandise. Furthermore, her upcoming movie will boost her $19 million fortune.
Thanks to the power of YouTube, a 7-year-old can make enough money that would take 10 lifetimes to spend. Currently, Adley May McBride resides with her family in Syracuse, Utah. Combined the family is worth an astonishing $35 million!
