No problem, at the end of this article both problems have been solved… So let’s get started…
What is Kids Next Door??
Kids Next Door (KND) is a collective group of 9 teenage influencers who already have a huge fan base with millions of followers on social media platforms. The credit for forming this group goes to Marcus Olin, the 21-year-old who moved to LA from Oregon and launched Kids Next Door, a content house, in May. They shared a home with eight other influencers, including his girlfriend Stephanie Margarucci, and created a buzz with their multiple posts and creative content.
The main purpose of staying together isn’t to party, but living there means committing to making several posts every day, using props, location, and all other facilities to their advantage.

Kids Next Door Mansion..!! Where is the Kids Next Door located??
Since they and their mansion have been featured quite a bit in the news and in discussions, you’re bound to be curious about all the details-
Based in Los Angeles, California, these members try to live up to their name by respecting their neighborhood and by showing that content can be created even without causing chaos and building the so-called college atmosphere.
The residence is a million dollar mansion with a spacious backyard, photogenic amenities, a luxurious pool and extensive outdoor space on a quiet street.
The concept of collab houses makes it easy for newcomers to Los Angeles: they have a nice place to live in, a built-in group of friends and, of course, constant access to employees. Additionally, if a brand or management company sponsors the house, the tenants may only need to produce a few TikToks and a YouTube video per week as a form of rent-in-kind, and they’re good to go.

Transition at Kids Next Door
Age is just a number, Marcus Olin proved when this 21-year-old launched a content house ‘Kids Next Door’. The house got its name from the power couple known for their matching neon colored hair.
It was a luxurious house full of teenagers whose occupations involved making videos, having fun and partying at any time of the day, even unsupervised. Of course it would be crazy..!! And it certainly was with all its kind of student parties. At first, people nearby were disturbed by their lifestyle and started complaining about their frat-like behavior.
†The neighbors were definitely not happy at first,’ ‘But we try to be as quiet as possible.†
Seeing the fuzz they were creating, the group quickly changed their ways. Marcus and other members realized that partying shouldn’t be the goal, and if they have to maintain their home, they must be disciplined.
Living with your friends at age 21 sounds intriguing and fun, but Marcus showed that it doesn’t mean all play and no work. He successfully created the house of contents and led it to victorious heights. The public admired them and enjoyed their extensive content.

TikTok in danger – TikTok influencers say ‘everyone is going to get a big blow†
With all the love and fame of the public, there was a surprising blow from the government. Following an order by US President Donald Trump banning all social media apps if their Chinese parent ByteDance doesn’t reach a deal to divest it within a certain period of time
Adam Miguest said-“Maybe everyone will take a big hit for two to five months. Everyone is going to lose a stream of income. I think it’s really stupid… what Trump is doing,”
If TikTok goes down, so will the career paths of all TikTok creators. While few have a backup plan or ideas, others have no suggestion on where to look and what to do..!! They fear that this will have a major impact on their livelihood and lifestyle. Due to TikTok’s huge impact on generation, any change will be seen as well.

“If it gets banned, of course I have a backup plan, which is to move to the YouTube platform or use the roles on Instagram,”
Another industry that would be deeply affected is the music industry. In today’s time, many songs find their way to the top after going viral through TikTok videos. Their value would be seriously affected if all use and promotion were to stop suddenly.
Kids next door are not your usual neighbors; they are a bunch of 8 content creators and influencers who are known for their voluminous content. Their founder Olin proved that age is just a number when at the age of 21 he launched a content house – ‘Kids Next Door’ and showed with their lifestyle that a collab house doesn’t mean all play and no work.
The house initially became popular due to the power couple known for their matching neon hair – Stephanie Margarucci and Marcus Olin. The members of the KND House live in a million dollar mansion with a spacious backyard, photogenic amenities, a luxurious pool and extensive outdoor space..!! Sounds luxurious.
