BTW: ... in this scenario, your ex was physically and verbally abusive, openly cheated on you and demanded an open relationship triggering a divorce (since just one of those didn't seem to be enough)
... fiction or reality, you be the judge

Don't give in--it belongs to you. You don't even owe the ex any explanation as to why they aren't getting it back. The kids will have to learn to live without this item while they are at the other parents house. Trying to placate them just to keep the peace only sets a precedent for them to get their way because they threw a fit. If they act like a child, feel free to treat them like one.

Wow sounds like what I am going through and will be going through after the divorce for exactly the same reasons. As long as she isn't living with you anymore and can't do much to you anymore I would stick to your guns as you put it and let her know she is wrong and stand up for yourself finally, something you probably were never able to do before with her
