Little Alchemy and its sequel, Little Alchemy 2, are great time killers and pretty addictive if you ask me. As the games revolve around you combining different elements from nature to produce new ones, they offer a learning angle, which I always loved.

Since there are 580 items/elements to be created in the first game and 720 in the second one, you could guess that some of these are hard to get and figure out. Especially something as abstract as time. That’s why we’ve decided to lend you a hand and create this quick and practical guide.

How to Get Time in Little Alchemy?

When you want to make Time in Little Alchemy, all you need to do is combine Sand + Glass. To get these elements, check out the recipes below:

  • Stone + Air = Sand
  • Stone + Wind = Sand
  • Fire + Sand = Glass
  • Sand + Electricity = Glass

How to Get Time in Little Alchemy 2?

To make Time in Little Alchemy 2, you would need to unlock 100 elements/items in total. That will automatically unlock Time and make that element ready for you.

If you’re looking to save time, YouTuber GambleDude has come up with a combo that will allow you to get to 100 elements in this game as fast as possible. You’ll only go through 72 combinations by using this technique, and you will have 100 items in your hands.

Time is a part of plenty of recipes in both games, and the fact that it is made differently confuses many folks.


We hope our quick guide helped you get through the alchemy of these games and grab Time!
