LOL!! DD was like this whenever she was playing with something. Even when she was on the playground. If someone came near her and she was by the slide or some other thing she was interested in, she'd say "No, MINE!". I would tell her "Ireland, honey, you have to share and take turns". If she continued to be a shit, I'd remove her from the situation. I wouldn't yell at her because it's developmentally appropriate at this age to be possessive. You could also try sharing games with you LO. Take an old sock and play "sharing". Have her old the sock and then you can ask her "Can I play with it? Can you share?" and go back and forth like that. That way when you tell her "you need to share" she'll really understand what you're talking about and she'll know that she'll get the toy back.
