When the first Blippi video came out on January 27th, 2014, it started a whole new career for Stevin John. It was not easy for him though because when he began his YouTube channel for kids, he did all of the work himself. He was the host, director, and editor of all his videos. But later on, he became very successful and is now one of the highest-paid YouTubers.
Who Is Blippi?
According to estimates, Blippi makes a total of $25 million from his 15 million YouTube subscribers. This makes him one of the world’s highest-paid YouTube celebrities.

Stevin John aka Blippi started his YouTube account in 2013 after completing his military service in the Air Force.
“Blippi” is actually the name of Stevin’s niece. He created the character when he started working as a marketing consultant for a brief period of time.
