Toggles showed a new dimension in UI designing. For several years designers are using the checkboxes for binary input options. When a user has to select an option, they have to tick a box. Practically checkboxes did the job perfectly, but still, it lacks the bonding. Even though designers have made the checkboxes modern and used eye-catching animation effects, it feels like a little old school design.

Toggle animations are used for menu design as well, so we have collected a few menu toggles to spice up your design.
