Jaiden Animations (born September 27, 1997YouTuber and animator who does storytimes and creates animations about her life. Jaiden has previously animated for YouTubers such as iHasCupquake. She currently has over 4 million subscribers and 440 million views.) is an American
Jaiden is a YouTuber who was originally known for animating for iHasCupquake, but has gained subscribers on her own due to her comical animated videos, such as stories about school, why she doesn't like high heels, and other awkward stories. Originally, she uploaded Pokemon speedarts, Q&As, and videos of her playing the piano, but has switched to more story-based content.
Jaiden joined YouTube on February 16, 2014, but didn't upload her first video until July of that year. Frequent collaborations with iHasCupquake, TonyvToons, TheOdd1sOut, and other creators helped skyrocketed her sub count, jumping from 100k subs to over 1,000,000 in the span of a year. Her channel has since grown to have over 4,000,000 subscribers, and each of her videos bolstering an equally impressive number of views.
Jaiden was born on September 27, 1997. During her childhood, she enjoyed drawing and casual video games. As she got older, she participated in competitive sports such as tennis and karate. She also took music lessons such as piano and violin.
She is close friends with many fellow animation YouTubers on the platform such as TheOdd1sOut, TimTom, and SomeThingElseYT, forming a gang called the Boise Squad.
The previous Animation Squad, however, included herself, TheOdd1sOut, ItsAlexClark, and TonyvToons.
Rebecca Parham from Let Me Explain Studios is also a close friend to Jaiden Animations, but she wasn't in either gang.
She has mentioned dating in multiple occasions before, however, at the moment, her dating life is currently n̶o̶n̶e̶x̶i̶s̶t̶e̶n̶t̶ kept private.
AriAri (born April 29, 2016 ) is Jaiden's "dog", as she jokingly calls them, even though he/she is actually a Green-cheeked conure/parakeet. Ari has often been featured in Jaiden's videos, and continues to be the star of her Instagram and Twitter.
Ari often pushes stuff off of tables, throws strawberries, and screams a lot. Ari also has a habit of singing songs on the radio, although he/she is often off tune.At the current moment, Ari's gender is unknown. Male and female green cheek conures look very similar and is almost impossible to tell their gender without a DNA Test, which Jaiden mentions are too expensive for her to feel comfortable paying for. There are some sources that say that Ari is female because of the color of his/her cere (the pale area above the beak), however, this is incorrect because those sources confuse Ari as being a budgie, a different kind of bird. In fact, it is likely that Ari is a boy, because it has been shown that many male greek cheek conures have gray/black feet, while many females have pink feet. Though it is still unknown how reliable that method is.
The very first video that Ari appeared in was the "New Member of the Family!" video. She/he has also appeared in "Ari's First Christmas feat. Weeaboo Misaki", "Happy Birthday Ari!", "Living with Ari", "Ari's Birthday! (again);", and the behind the scenes of her music video "Empty".
PersonalityJaiden is shy, and tends to be nervous around people. She calls herself 'awkward' and 'anxious’, although recently she's gotten to be much better with social interactions. These traits are referenced in many videos, the most notable being “Why I Don’t Have a ‘Face Reveal’” video in which she details her problems with self-consciousness, body dysmorphia, and eating disorders. She comes off as humble and kind. She follows a vegan diet and it is most likely due to her concerns about how animals are treated in farms.
