Playset of Obama children given as donation

The playset of the Obama children has been donated to a local organization.
The Trump team declined to keep the playset that Malia and Sasha Obama used.

WASHINGTON — The play equipment that Malia and Sasha Obama used when they were younger is no longer at the White House.

The playset the first family had installed for them in 2009 has been removed.

A White House official tells CBS News the playset was offered to the Trump team for the President-elect’s son and grandchildren, but the Trumps passed on the offer.

An official says the playset has been donated “to a local organization serving those in need.”

The organization was not named.
