If dad gives their child a mobile phone (his old phone and not for calls but games) and it is lost while on mums time, does mum legally have to replace it?

Nope.
I would expect that this would fall under the “at your own risk”. If child was allowed to take device to vacation care, and its lost there - would vacation care be required to replace it?

In future just advise you would rather the item not come to yours as you don’t want the respsonibility for it.
