Imagine a game where you can create over 700 different things simply by combining other things. Now imagine that game but with dinosaurs, phoenixes, and other cool creatures. That game actually exists and is called Little Alchemy 2! It’s a free-to-play title available on PC and mobile devices and it is absurdly addictive. Interested? You can play the game here!

Despite the simplicity of Little Alchemy 2, even creating basic things can be deceptively difficult and require very long, multi-step processes full of trial and error. This guide will assist players in figuring out how to create a dinosaur, which is not only really cool but will also assist in creating other recipes in the game such as dragons, Nessie, and even a Tyrannosaurus rex!

One of the elements in Little Alchemy 2 is time, and time is unlocked by discovering 100 other unique combinations. Time is a bit of a ‘cheat’ element as it allows you to skip steps here and there. Since time is so hard to unlock, we will not be including it in the overall guide on how to make a dinosaur. If you already have time unlocked, there will be a section to assist you in using it to unlock dinosaurs towards the end of the article.

The Easiest Way to Make a Dinosaur in Little Alchemy 2

Creating a dinosaur in Little Alchemy 2 is a bit complicated and there are many steps to the process. We will provide step-by-step instructions here under the assumption that you are brand new and have nothing unlocked. If you already have something that we’re covering unlocked, simply jump to the next step that is relevant to you.

Step 1: Create Pressure

The first step to creating a dinosaur is to create pressure. Pressure can be created by combining two air elements.

Pressure in Little Alchemy 2.
Combining two air elements will create pressure.

Step 2: Create Stone

Now that you have pressure unlocked, you should merge that pressure with the earth element in order to create stone.

Stone in Little Alchemy 2.
Applying pressure to the earth will create stone.

Step 3: Create a Puddle

The next step is to create a puddle, and this begins the multi-step process of adding more and more water to the world. As you can imagine, combining two water elements will create a puddle, the natural kiddie pool.

Puddle in Little Alchemy 2.
Combining water with water will create a puddle.

Step 4: Create a Pond

Now that we have our puddle, the next step is to add even more water to it. Adding more water to the puddle will create a pond.

Pond in Little Alchemy 2.
This really small lake can be made by mixing a puddle and additional water.

Step 5: Create a Lake

What happens when you add more water to a pond? You get a lake, according to Little Alchemy 2. So once again you should go ahead and combine the pond with additional water.

Lake in Little Alchemy 2.
Add more water to a pond to get a big pond, also known as a lake.

Step 6: Create a Sea

Do I need to explain how to create the sea or has it become second nature at this point? Once again, add additional water to the lake and you will get a sea. The sea is not an ocean, by the way, the game makes sure you know that.

Sea in Little Alchemy 2.
Adding even more water to a lake will make it a sea.

Step 7: Create Primordial Soup

We’ve finally finished adding more water to things for now. You should now take your newly discovered sea and combine it with the ‘earth’ element. Doing so will create primordial soup, an important ingredient in a lot of recipes.

Primordial Soup in Little Alchemy 2.
This birth-giving water is made by mixing the sea with the earth.

Step 8: Create Energy

Putting the primordial soup aside for a little bit, the next step is to create energy. Energy can be made by combining two fire elements.

Energy in Little Alchemy 2.
Combining fire with more fire creates energy!

Step 9: Create Life

Now that we have both energy and primordial soup, we have the recipe for life! Combine these two elements to create life, which is needed for any kind of animal in Little Alchemy 2.

Life in Little Alchemy 2.
Combining energy and primordial soup.. is that the secret to life?

Step 10: Create Land

Land is something that is very simple to create in Little Alchemy 2, you only need to combine two earth elements.

Land in Little Alchemy 2.
Combining earth with more earth will create land.

Step 11: Make an Animal

Next up on the to-do list for all of you upcoming alchemists is to use your newfound life-creating abilities to make an animal. In order to accomplish this task, you should combine the new land you just created with the life element you created earlier.

Animal in Little Alchemy 2.
Placing life on top of land will create an animal.

Step 12: Make a Lizard

Now that we know how to make animals, it’s time to be more specific in what animals we want to make. Take your newly formed ‘animal’ element and combine it with stone, which will reward you with a lizard!

Lizard.
We can’t have dinosaurs without their distant relative lizards, right?

Step 13: Create a Continent

We won’t need the lizard you just made for quite a while, so it can be placed to the side for now. Instead, take two land elements and combine them in order to form a continent.

Continent in Little Alchemy 2.
Land + Land = Continent

Step 14: Create a Planet

In order to create a planet, we now need to combine the continent you just made with another continent.

Planet in Little Alchemy 2.
Two continents join together to form a planet in Little Alchemy 2.

Step 15: Make Mud

The planet can be left alone for now, it will be relevant later in the process. For now, we are going to go back to the basic elements and combine water and earth in order to create mud.

Mud in Little Alchemy 2.
As the game says, mud is water and earth’s child.

Step 16: Create Clay

Now we need to take the mud we just made and combine it with stone in order to make clay, or ‘fine, wet dirt’ as the game jokes.

Clay in Little Alchemy 2.
Mud and Stone make fine, wet dirt

(also known as Clay).

Step 17: Make a Human

What are humans made out of? Stardust? No, humans are made out of clay and life, silly! Combine clay with the ‘life’ element and now your planet can have some lovely humans to populate it.

Human in Little Alchemy 2.
Combining clay with the power of life will create the most dangerous game, humans.

Step 18: Create Sand

Before we can create dinosaurs, we first must create sand for them to walk on, or something like that. Sand can be made by combining stone and air elements in Little Alchemy 2.

Sand in Little Alchemy 2.
Combining stone and air will net you with some rough and coarse sand.

Step 19: Create Glass

In order to create glass, we must burn our newly created sand with the power of fire.

Glass in Little Alchemy 2.
Combining sand and fire will create glass.

Step 20: Create the Sun

Dinosaurs wouldn’t be able to exist without the sun, after all. The sun can be created by combining a planet with fire.

Sun in Little Alchemy 2.
We can create the center of our galactic party by combining a planet and a fire element.

Step 21: Create a Solar Cell

What is solar energy? How do we harness that power? The answer is of course through the use of solar panels! In order to create a solar cell, simply combine the sun with energy.

Solar Cell in Little Alchemy 2.
Creating solar cells is quite logical, simply combine energy and the sun.

Step 22: Create Electricity

Now that we know how to create solar cells, it is time to put those solar cells to use to generate electricity. To do this, combine the solar cell you just made with the sun.

Electricity in Little Alchemy 2.
Harness the power of the gods by combining solar cells and the sun.

Step 23: Create a Light Bulb

Now that we have access to electricity, we need to create a light bulb. This can be done by combining the electricity we just discovered with the glass we made a few steps prior.

Light Bulb in Little Alchemy 2.
Light bulbs can be made by combining electricity and glass.

Step 24: Generate an Idea

We’re almost there, only a few steps remain before our dinosaur dreams are realized. What are light bulbs commonly associated with? Ideas! Therefore, we’re going to combine the light bulb with the ‘human’ we created earlier in order to form the concept of an idea.

Idea in Little Alchemy 2.
Ideas can be formed by combining a human with a light bulb.

Step 25: Invent Philosophy

Now that we are capable of having ideas, it is time to take that a step further and create the concept of philosophy. This can be achieved by combining our newfound idea with the human element.

Philosophy in Little Alchemy 2
Human ideas lead to philosophy, both in Little Alchemy 2 and in the real world!

Step 26: Make Big

Now that we understand philosophy, it is time to create the concept that is ‘big.‘ In order to do this, we need to combine the philosophy element with a planet.

Big in Little Alchemy 2.
Planets are big and philosophy helps us understand big, so combining the two makes big!

Step 27: Create a Dinosaur

We have finally reached the part of the process where we get to make an actual dinosaur! In order to do so, grab that lizard that we put to the side earlier and combine it with the ‘big’ element we just made.

Dinosaur.
Dinosaurs are just big reptiles in the land of Little Alchemy 2.

Alternative Combos to Make a Dinosaur in Little Alchemy 2

There is one other method to create a dinosaur in Little Alchemy 2, as we discussed towards the beginning of the article. This method requires the ‘time’ element, which is unlocked after having already discovered 100 other elements in the game. The process for this route is as follows.

  • Air + Air = Pressure
  • Earth + Pressure = Stone
  • Water + Water = Puddle
  • Puddle + Water = Pond
  • Pond + Water = Lake
  • Lake + Water = Sea
  • Earth + Sea = Primordial Soup
  • Primordial Soup + Time = Life
  • Earth + Earth = Land
  • Life + Land = Animal
  • Animal + Stone = Lizard
  • Lizard + Time = Dinosaur
