Shonki and Appini Hybrids
Shonki and Appini's parts will hybrid easily onto other Soom Teenie Gem bodies. The resin will match Soom's 'Cream White' color for Appini, though aging and neglected care may cause the resin to yellow, making the match a little off. Shonki is the first doll that Soom has made in black resin, so his resin tone is not matchable as of yet. More research is required to see what other dolls he will blend with.

Shonki and Appini's Story Line
Shonki and Appini were born when Breccia put seeds into a pot. When they first came into being, they were born as cats. However, a time passed, they began to shape into the forms of children. They continue to live in the pots that they were born in, even though they are out-growing them a little. They love silly games like giving people who get lost in Pella wrong directions, and the love to nap in their pots. Normally, they look just like naughty children, but recently, they have learned Taoist magic which lets them turn into cats. However, they haven't quite perfected it yet, so the only things that they're able to change are their ears and tails.
