With skillful stunt videos and incredible parkour tricks, his channel has grown an incredible following – with a community alongside that both gawks at his talent and envies his skills. 

Still integrating social media trends, music, and memes into his content, he’s been able to not only draw reach from parkour enthusiasts, but also the average content consumer – completely justifying his incredible subscriber growth over the past year. 

4. Lanky Box

If you’re an animated content or Roblox fan, chances are you’ll enjoy Lanky Box’s YouTube channel and creation style. With compilations, animations, and songs – they have something for everyone. 

With their unique content style, characters, and personalities on the channel, it feels like an entirely new experience from traditional influencers on the platform – paving the way for their incredible expansion of the past few years. 

5. Vlad and Niki

Tailored towards parents and young children, this “global preschool phenomenon” has captured the attention of many users online – from educational professionals, to proud parents, and their own children. Vlad and Niki transform content online for children – removing the negative stereotypes around unhelpful screen time, with new ways to engage online. 

As a family themselves, they create content tailored towards other families and children – weaving interesting storylines, settings, and plots into an educational experience made to enjoy. Post-pandemic and in the age of online learning, it’s no surprise their brand and overall channel audience has grown massively in the past few years. 

6. Cocomelon

Another content channel tailored towards children, Cocomelon’s YouTube platform has grown immensely in recent years with significant shifts in the online educational landscape. Enjoyable for diverse demographics and audiences, their content hosts unique animations, sensory-pleasing videos, and “lullabies” for their viewers. 

With adorable characters and savvy animations, what’s not to like about Cocomelon? If you haven’t checked out their platform – whether you have children or not – you should! It might just be the perfect way to relax and unwind after a stressful day – which is exactly why they’ve grown so massively popular over alternative content styles.

8. Marta and Rustam

  • 33.8M subscribers
  • Joined June 21, 2021

Despite being a relatively new channel on the platform, Marta and Rustam’s YouTube platform has grown massively since they joined back in 2021. With short-form comedic content, compilations, and skits, they host a refreshingly nostalgic content style – similar to that of Vine several years ago. 

Mostly popular for their YouTube Shorts, the couple has also expanded to growing audiences on other platforms like TikTok and Instagram as they get creative making new content and experimenting with new styles. 

9. Zach King

10. Toys and Colors
