You need to set consequences and stick to them. Tell her if she throws toys you will take them away. If she does it again take them away without warning her.
She doesn't get them back when she asks, she has to show you that she can play nicely.
You need to be consistent and follow through with your warnings/threats. This is the age that they learn how far they can push you and if you give in now you are in for one hell of a time as they get older.
2 out of my 3 children are very stubborn but I'm more stubborn (and bigger) then them. Sometimes it feels like a standoff but you need to stay strong. Don't give in to crying or tantrums because then the tantrums will just last longer until you give in.
Stay strong and good luck. It's a tough road but worth it. My oldest will be 13 this year and he is the sweetest child. He was the worst one at that age though.
