It could be that she is not ready to work on that particular skill yet.

You may try to start smaller: designate ONE toy as the "sharing toy", and set a timer for maybe two minutes. See if she will tolerate that and reward her very well if she does. Next time, set the timer longer. after she is up to 10 or 15 minutes, try moving to two sharing toys and keep going. It will take time, but I think with consistency and perseverance, it should work.

Reciprocal sharing is incredibly hard to learn.
