How to create fly to cart / basket effect using jQuery and CSS

I found a very nice and useful tutorial animation on for your shopping cart projects you can put this cool animation of add to cart, long time ago I saw this animation of jQuery on a website and today I found it here going to give this demo to you and explain how to use it. Its basically an animation of jQuery when some one click on any item add to cart button that item’s picture fly and take place in your basket.
Its not a complete cart its only animation of fly to cart / basket

How to use it:

This is a simple jQuery script you can use it easily.
    $('.add-to-cart').on('click', function () {
        var cart = $('.shopping-cart');
        var imgtodrag = $(this).parent('.item').find("img").eq(0);
        if (imgtodrag) {
            var imgclone = imgtodrag.clone()
                top: imgtodrag.offset().top,
                left: imgtodrag.offset().left
                'opacity': '0.5',
                    'position': 'absolute',
                    'height': '150px',
                    'width': '150px',
                    'z-index': '100'
                'top': cart.offset().top + 10,
                    'left': cart.offset().left + 10,
                    'width': 75,
                    'height': 75
            }, 1000, 'easeInOutExpo');

            setTimeout(function () {
                cart.effect("shake", {
                    times: 2
                }, 200);
            }, 1500);

                'width': 0,
                    'height': 0
            }, function () {


When you click on add to cart button it took that item image and change its size and opacity and animate it to cart icon area and hide image and shake basket.

CSS used for this tutorial to make it looks nice:
    * {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
body {
    background-color: #F2EEE9;
    font: normal 13px/1.5 Georgia, Serif;
    color: #333;
.wrapper {
    width: 705px;
    margin: 20px auto;
    padding: 20px;
h1 {
    display: inline-block;
    background-color: #333;
    color: #fff;
    font-size: 20px;
    font-weight: normal;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    padding: 4px 20px;
    float: left;
.clear {
    clear: both;
.items {
    display: block;
    margin: 20px 0;
.item {
    background-color: #fff;
    float: left;
    margin: 0 10px 10px 0;
    width: 205px;
    padding: 10px;
    height: 290px;
.item img {
    display: block;
    margin: auto;
h2 {
    font-size: 16px;
    display: block;
    border-bottom: 1px solid #ccc;
    margin: 0 0 10px 0;
    padding: 0 0 5px 0;
button {
    border: 1px solid #722A1B;
    padding: 4px 14px;
    background-color: #fff;
    color: #722A1B;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    float: right;
    margin: 5px 0;
    font-weight: bold;
    cursor: pointer;
span {
    float: right;
.shopping-cart {
    display: inline-block;
    background: url("shoping_cart1.png") no-repeat 0 0;
    width: 24px;
    height: 24px;
    margin: 0 10px 0 0;

This CSS beautify cart items.


This markup create items listing with item images make sure that you are using same id’s if want to change then must change them in your jQuery as well.

<div class="wrapper">
     <h1>PHPGang Store</h1>
    <span><i class="shopping-cart"></i></span>

    <div class="clear"></div>
    <div class="items">
        <div class="item">
