A vague sense of unease

Yesterday we got a new bath toy for Dominic: 

Pretty simple, right? Just some plastic thing. Take another look: 

And another....

Nothing much to see, right? Just some plastic scoopy-thingy, roughly the size and shape of a gravy boat. Nothing sinister or potentially dangerous, right? Right? There's no POSSIBLE way this plastic thing could possibly hurt ANYBODY, right?
Are you sure? 

Then WHY did it come with a paper full of warnings and scary images? 

And, worst of all...why are NONE OF THEM IN ENGLISH??? 

Sometimes I hate being a parent.
