just because the toys are old...

Last year my DH and I split, we were living in a house together. I moved in with my parents temporarily and he got another place because the lease was up. At the time we had joint custody so he moved all of our DS's toys to his new place. Some time between the time he moved in and the time I moved in with him because we got back together, DS's toys all got strewn in the yard.

Our landlord shares a yard with us. Their kids were bringing ds's toys out and playing with them. I started to pick them up because we are taking them with us and landlord and the kids got huffy because we are taking the toys with us. They said that we shouldn't worry about the toys because "they are old, have been outside since my DH moved in a year and a half ago, and DS doesn't play with them anyway." I feel like regardless no one should be mad because they are still DS's toys kwim?

what do you guys think?

They are your toys so i'm on your side about that but they probably shouldn't have been thrown everywhere.

I agree. If I would have been there when DH and DS first moved in I wouldn't have allowed the toys to be taken outside.

why would you expect other people to respect your belongings when you don't?

The landlord told you that you shouldn't take your toys, because HIS kids wanted to play with them? Nice try, but no fly,  dude. You shouldn't leave toys strewn all over the place though, anyway.

They are hers to do with as she wishes.

We weren't the ones who strewn them about, their kids did. Their kids came in and got them and took them out. We picked up the ones we found but considering the yard is 2 acres of land and some of the toys were small, they were all hard to find.

The landlord's kids came into your HOME without permission and took your kids' toys out to play with?

They had permission to come in but not to take the toys out. DH would allow them to come in and play with DS.
