Would you consider this..."Not Fair"

DH and I decided to buy his kids and mine a tv and PS3 to share (We are behind on game systems).  HIs kids don't live with us so will only get to use it on weekends and Wednesdays.  We also bought them a BluRay player and each got some games and BluRays. 

 

All of them are also getting several individual gifts geared towards them.

 

His ex is pissed and said it isn't fair because my kid will get to more use out of the tv, PS3, and BluRay and that we should have just helped her get the kids ipads.  We had considered it until she said that she wasn't going to let them bring them here.  The kids have two tablets they share between them here that belong to me and DH. 

 

So is our gift unfair?  Honestly my kid only plays video games when they are here.  And really doesn't watch much tv during the week either because she is at dance 2-4 hours 3 nights a week.

Sounds like she may have been considering selling them. At least that's my first thought.

It's not as if those are the only gifts they are getting. And if you helped play with the iPads they wouldn't be able to play with them at your house so how is that anymore fair?
Does my post make sense? I can't even tell anymore.

More then perfectly fair. You don't have to help get her anything for the kids, and I wouldn't help get them an iPad that wouldn't be allowed over my house.

That is NOT unfair.
BM should have little to no say in what/how you and DH gift for the kids in your house- even if they are just in your house part time!

The play station doubles as a bluray player...
