Could the following be a proper sentence? “They’re theirs.”?

If I pointed to 2 children and then point to 2 parents, could I properly say, “They’re theirs.”?

    You could even say, "They're theirs there."

      Yes, all good linguistic fun! But in practice Britons might say: "They are their children".

    It IS a 'proper sentence''. It's a shortened form of 'They belong to them'. They're mine, They're yours, They're his, They're ours, They're theirs.

    Of course. If you were comforting someone and doing this as well as indicating where these people are, you could say, "There, there. They're theirs there."

    Yes it is since it has both a subject and a verb.

    Yes, They're or They are theirs is a proper sentence meaning (whatever they may be) belongs to them.

    Yes, that would be just fine, your meaning would be clear and it's perfectly good English.
