At our house we have a toys area. Those are toys for everyone. Then the kids each have a shelf in their room for their "special things" things that are important to them and that they do not have to share. And the kids are allowed to play with their special stuff in their room, so they wont be bothered by siblings.
We do a lot of the "trading" too...if you don't want her to have your red car, offer her a blue one that she CAN have. If squabbling escalates, or someone starts misusing the toy to get it to themselves (like hitting with it, etc.), I will actually take the toy away from both and put it in "toy time out" for the rest of the day. They each have some "special" things that are just for them too
