Take a look at Get Simple Product from Configurable in Cart

foreach ($cart->getQuote()->getAllVisibleItems() as $item) {
    if ($option = $item->getOptionByCode('simple_product')) {
        $simpleProduct = $option->getProduct()

if($_product->getTypeId() == "configurable"):
    $conf_prod = Mage::getModel('catalog/product_type_configurable')->setProduct($_product);
    $simpleproducts = $conf_prod->getUsedProductCollection()->addAttributeToSelect('*')->addFilterByRequiredOptions();
    foreach($simpleproducts as $simple_product){
        echo $simple_product->getSku();
        echo $simple_product->getName();

Assuming $_product as configurable product, you can get all the associated products belonging to this particular configurable product using the above code. Thanks

  • $simpleProductId = 4; $parentIds = Mage::getResourceSingleton('catalog/product_type_configurable') ->getParentIdsByChild($simpleProductId); $product = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->load($parentIds[0]); echo $product->getId(); Oct 27, 2014 at 13:19
  • go from configurable product -> simple product. not simple product -> configurable product Oct 27, 2014 at 13:30

    Could you please explain a bit what exactly you want to achieve to do? Oct 27, 2014 at 13:32

Magento is save simple product sku and configurable product id when it cart configurable product. Simple Product sku by $_item->getSku();

You can get cart simple product details by load of product model


Configurable product by $_item->getProduct()
