Play Censer

The original crocheted toy censer!

Order two or more censers for a 10% discount. Order five or more for a 15% discount.


Cozy House Curios is the home of the original crocheted toy censer! This unique item is hand-crocheted and both durable and child-friendly. Gold-colored yarn is crocheted around foam hemispheres to hold the shape. The “chains” are crocheted and have minimal stretch. They come together at the top to form a loop convenient for hanging. Nine bells are stitched in place at regular intervals. The censer is constructed such that a one-inch space exists between the top and bottom halves. This allows the felted “charcoal” (made from black wool) to be inserted or removed. 

While this item is well-made, as with any toy it will eventually show wear. Be watchful for bells that are becoming loose and either remove them or reinforce the stitching.

You can order this with the bells inside at no extra charge for small children who are likely to pull or chew them off. You can also request it be made without bells if you desire. There are separate listings for censers with detachable bellstoddler-sized censers, and a pattern to make your own censer.


Original censer: 13 inches fully-extended, 3 1/2 inches across at widest point.

Censer with bells inside: 15 inches fully-extended, 3 1/2 inches across at widest point. 

I try to keep a number of censers in stock, but they may be made-to-order if they sell faster than I can make them. Orders can usually be filled in a few days unless you have ordered a large number of censers. I will let you know when you can expect them to be completed. If you are against a tight deadline please let me know in the comment section. 

There is a 10% discount for ordering two or more censers (visible at checkout). Five or more censers may be ordered for the wholesale discount of 15%. If you would like to place an order of 10 or more (at the 15% discounted price) please message me first as I may have to create a custom listing for you. If you are ordering in bulk I will give you an estimated time to completion.

    Beautiful and well-made. Looks sturdy and is super fun to swing around. The bells are charming and subtle, not too shrill. Our little guy is only 9 months, but we bought this for when he’s 2 1/2 or 3. Couldn’t resist — most Orthodox toy ever.

    I love that it has bells but they’re enclosed…it’s a little quieter and I won’t worry the bells will come off.

    Both of my sons love their new play censer. I am especially impressed by the quality of the bells. It really sounds beautiful. My whole house has now been thoroughly blessed by my 4-year-old. He also uses it every night during prayers.

    I love this play censer. The kids are “celebrating” Divine Liturgy as often as I let them. I’m thrilled that they’re taking such an interest.
