    Super great: Man, I had that one when I was a kid. Always loved the French writing. I'm pretty sure the company name is a derivative of the nickname of "lapin" (rabbit in French)= "pin" (also pronounced like 'bread' in French, 'pain'; thus "pin pin". Always takes me back to happy childhood memories...I could always find one easily at Sears (retail or Christmas catalogue), K-Mart or Zellers.

    "Pin" in French is pretty much the same pronounciation in both of these examples. I used the 2 spellings to explain the same sound. The company name would be 'pin' ( in French, little is "petit", or "tit" for a cuter, shorter nickname for little); as "Pin Pin" would translate as "rabbit rabbit" or "bunny bunny". This is my best guess to explain the word pronounciation alongside the French logo.

    I had been taught that it would sound more like pan. Except for the last part where the tongue never quite touches the roof of the mouth. Like the popular dish Coq au Vin (chicken with wine) sounds like Cocoa Van.

    I don't pull these pronunciations out of my butt. I use Google Translate.

    They have audio files so you can hear the pronunciation.

    From experience I know that their Japanese words use the correct sounds but don't bother clarifying accents, which are also extemely important.
