Puppies only play with each other and not with me - they don't know how to use toys

So 3 days ago I got 2 boys - White Swiss Shepherd.

They are from the same family - brothers.
When me and my wife train them - we separate them to teach them.

Do we need to play with them separately too? They cannot play with us - whenever one starts to play another puppy comes and they start play fighting. It is almost impossible to stop them. Also, if one takes a toy - other drops everything and they start play fighting again or just running after each other.

Important note - I don't need this for myself :) I want to teach them to play toys, that it's fun to bite some other things, not just your brother. Also, so later we could play on the outside.

Thanks @LeoRose for your response. Very sad to hear that. We thought that it would be a great idea to have 2 pups, so they wouldn't be bored like ever. But it really feels like just living with dog neighbors. They interact with us only when separated and we cannot hold them like that forever :(
