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 1993 Super Famicom point-and-click video game that features minigames related to cooking. The game was a promotional item with a production run of 10,000 units which were used for a lottery contest. Consumers who mailed in two proof of purchase seals from Ajinomoto mayonnaise received a copy of the game and were entered into the contest, which was run over five months with 2,000 prizes given away monthly.[3]

Name brand products from Japanese supermarkets are used as an advertising 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 include reversi against a witch and finding seven dwarves that turn into sausages. The gameplay is somewhat similar to the more widely-known Nintendo DS title Cooking Mama, which was released more than a decade later in 2006.

The game supports the SNES mouse.[3]
