shouldn't it be "Der Mann spielt mit seinen Elefanten?"

No.

  • mit ihren Elefanten = with her elephants or with their elephants

  • mit seinen Elefanten = with his elephants

Shouldn't it be ' Der Mann spielt mit ihrem Elefanten' so shouldn't it be 'ihrem' rather than 'ihren' as it's in the dative?
