The older brothers compete with each other pretty hard but neither really wants to play with the baby brother, but their parents make them play with baby brother anyway so he’ll stop wining. When one has to play with baby brother, the other twin sets back ready to laugh if baby brother wins, but otherwise, nobody really cares, just keep the baby from wining.
