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.

Gameplay[edit]

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]
