Step 1 (HTML Code):

To get started, we will first need to create a basic HTML file. In this file, we will include the main structure for our animated checkbox.

Before we can start styling our animated checkbox, we need to set up the HTML structure. The first thing we need is a checkbox input. You can create one using the below code

Next, we'll add an SVG element and label to our HTML. This will be used to create the animation.

After creating the files just paste the following codes into your file. Make sure to save your HTML document with a .html extension, so that it can be properly viewed in a web browser.

This is the basic structure of our SVG checkbox using HTML, and now we can move on to styling it using CSS.

Step 2 (CSS Code):

Now that we have our HTML structure set up, it's time to start styling our SVG. First, we need to define the initial state of the SVG. This can be done using CSS to set the position, size and color of the SVG.

Next, we'll create the animation using CSS. We'll be using the CSS keyframe animation property to create the animation.

This will give our checkbox an upgraded presentation. Create a CSS file with the name of styles.css and paste the given codes into your CSS file. Remember that you must create a file with the .css extension.
