If the item is special then it needs to be kept in their room and put away when they are done. If it is in the livingroom or the shared spaces in the it is a shared item.
Yep. Pretty much. Our kids are roughly the same age though.

Everything in the house is MINE and I share with the boys, lol.
No they share everything except my older ds' things that are not actually toys and my younger ds' things that might break if older ds uses them. There is such a big age difference between the two, that some things just CAN'T be shared. But if it can be shared it is.

Re: How to decide what toys are shared?

Everything is shared. They may or may not remember exactly which one of them it was given to, but it's assumed that everyone is welcome to play with it regardless.

This is fuzzy for us still. My three boys (ages 5, 7, and nearly 10) share one room. It works for them and us but the only rough spot is the yours/mine/ours battle. DHs rule is that if they buy something with their own money, it's theirs. They can choose if and when to share it. But they have to keep it up and in a safe place (show that its important kwim?) They're not really toy players so things they're sharing are blocks, dinosaurs, legos, costumes, books... Ds1 has his off limits books, sports stuff. Ds2 has Pokemon guide books he references and those are never shared. Ds3 doesn't care about anything.

Re: How to decide what toys are shared?

Our toys belong to everyone with only a select few exceptions. DD's American Girl dolls she doesn't have to share with 3.5 year old DS. She doesn't share her puzzles or big kid games.

Books are everyones.

Re: How to decide what toys are shared?

Books, games, blocks/legos, large toys like kitchen sets, etc are all shared. If someone gets a book specially for her, then she gets to read it first. After that it goes on the book shelf to be shared. Things like American girl dolls, special stuffed animals, etc are not shared and I don't expect them to be. Some toys that belong to individual girls like xia xia crabs, barbies, ponies, etc end up being shared because it's more fun with someone to play with but I don't mandate it.

They share...if there is a dispute (sharing) then the toy goes to the kid who it was gifted to.

Re: How to decide what toys are shared?

They pretty much share everything. They have their special loves/sleep toys, but they are good about sharing everything else. My middle child is probably the most sensitive about things belonging to him, but he still shares with his brother and sister.

Each of our kids have been given some things that we consider belonging to just one of them, a special doll or stack of books given from cousins. But other then a few exceptions everything is considered both of theirs, even if it was a gift for just one of them. The special items i do expect them to share as long as it's age appropriate. But they are young still too . In a couple years they'll probably want to separate their things a little more.
