Motoko-chan no Wonder Kitchen (もと子ちゃんのワンダーキッチン?, "Little Motoko's Wonder Kitchen")[2] is a Super Famicom video game that teaches players how to cook meals in a realistic kitchen. During a promotional period that started on September 1993, the game was considered a promotional item that was given away with Ajinomoto mayonnaise purchases in Japan.[3]

The spiritual successor of this game would be Cooking Mama for the Nintendo DS and iOS.


Name brand products from Japanese supermarkets are used as an advertisting gimmick from the company Ajinomoto. A young girl named Motoko takes children through a fantasy world and provides educational and informative content about the history of mayonnaise and other things that are related to food history.[4] Games included reversi against a witch and finding seven dwarves that turn into sausages.[3]
