Style Eight-year-old YouTube sensation Kameiro Rush unboxes his back-to-school must-haves

Kameiro Rush, along with his younger sister, plays with a variety of toys and costumes on their channel, FamousTubeKIDS.

Anyone who has clicked through trending videos on YouTube in the past few years would recognize the rise of one particularly mesmerizing genre: unboxing. The videos, which feature the unpacking of consumer goods, beauty products and toys, have become popular with tech enthusiasts and kids alike. They’ve also launched a new type of superstar, including Kameiro Rush, who, alongside his younger sister Cali, plays with a variety of toys and costumes on their channel, FamousTubeKIDS. “The best thing ever was unboxing my quad,” the eight-year-old says. “I’ve always wanted one and was so surprised when I got it this year. It made my summer! I jumped on right away to test it out.”

Kameiro is starting Grade 4 this week, and he’ll be bringing his penchant for play into the science lab. “I always have so much fun during science class because you get to learn about so many different things,” he says. “Sometimes we get to do small experiments and go outside to learn about nature. I really like it when we get to do both those activities.”

Here, he shares his must-haves for starting the school year in style.
