Four separate recalls of Fisher-Price products released Thursday include nearly 11 million products, including high chairs, tricycles and inflatable baby toys.

Ten children were injured, six requiring medical attention, after falling on the protruding plastic key on a Tough Trikes toddler tricycle. About 7 million trikes have been sold since 1997; you can get the full list of recalled model numbers here.

Also included in the recalls:

  • Little People Wheelies Stand 'n Play Rampway. The wheels on the purple and the green cars can come off, posing a choking hazard.
  • Healthy Care, Easy Clean and Close to Me High Chairs. More than a million chairs are being recalled because of the pegs on the rear legs, which jut out and can cut kids. Fourteen injuries have been reported, seven requiring stitches.
  • Several inflatable baby toys, including Baby Playzone Crawl & Cruise Playground, Baby Playzone Crawl & Slide Arcade , Baby Gymtastics Play Wall, Ocean Wonders Kick & Crawl Aquarium, 1-2-3 Tetherball, and Bat & Score Goal. The valve of the inflatable ball included with all these toys can come off and choke small children.
