How to make Big and Small in Little Alchemy 2

It's time to appreciate the little (and big) things in life.

Although peculiar-sounding, Big and Small in Little Alchemy 2 are surprisingly powerful elements that can help you create items such as cities, dinosaurs, and an atomic bomb, depending on your available items. Here’s how to make Big and Small for your merging adventures.

How to make Big in Little Alchemy 2

You can create Big in Little Alchemy 2 using the following combinations:

  • Planet + Philosophy
  • Sun + Philosophy
  • Galaxy + Philosophy
  • Galaxy Cluster + Philosophy
  • Universe + Philosophy
  • Solar System + Philosophy

Generally speaking, several space-related words combined with philosophy will make Big. So far, the most straightforward combination I’ve found is planet and philosophy, but you can use the others if you have them available. For the purpose of this guide, I’ll be using this recipe. Let’s dive right into it.

Planet recipe

  • Earth + Earth = Land
  • Land + Land = Continent
  • Continent + Continent = Planet

The planet node is the quickest and easiest of the two parts, allowing you to knock it out within a few seconds. Next, we’ll make philosophy.

We’ll break this down into two parts: creating a human and an idea. First, we’ll merge items to make a human. To start, we’ll need to make the life node using the following combinations.

  • Water + Water = Puddle
  • Puddle + Puddle = Pond
  • Pond + Pond = Lake
  • Lake + Lake = Sea
  • Earth + Sea = Primordial Soup
  • Fire + Fire = Energy
  • Primordial Soup + Energy = Life

From here, we’ll create clay, which we combine with life to make human. Below are the combinations for this.

  • Water + Earth = Mud
  • Air + Air = Pressure
  • Earth + Pressure = Stone
  • Mud + Stone = Clay
  • Clay + Life = Human

Now that we have human, we’ll make an idea using the following combinations:

  • Stone + Air = Sand
  • Sand + Fire = Glass
  • Planet + Fire = Sun
  • Sun + Energy = Solar Cell
  • Solar Cell + Sun = Electricity
  • Glass + Electricity = Light blub
  • Human + Light bulb = Idea

Lastly, combine the human and idea elements to create philosophy. With all that done, merge philosophy and planet to create Big.

In Little Alchemy 2, Small requires you to combine bacteria and philosophy. In this way, it’s similar to Big, with you swapping the space-related theme with biology.

You’ll likely already have philosophy by following the steps above. From here, you can make bacteria by merging life and mud, which you also created earlier as you made big. Combining your life and mud elements from the previous recipe to make bacteria allows you to use philosophy and bacteria to make small.
