Have you tried Great Circus Mystery Starring Mickey and Minnie (AKA Magical Quest 2)? Really solid 2-player simultaneous co-op platformer that's designed to be easy enough for kids. I played it a lot with siblings and friends as a kid. If they like that you can get the fan translation of the J-only Magical Quest 3 starring Mickey and Donald. Incidentally, Magical Quest 1 is single player, sadly.

Of course classics like Donkey Kong Country and Super Mario World are in the conversation. They might be too young for aggressive action games like Contra 3 or King of Dragons but those are great for co-op too. Goof Troop and Secret of Mana are good as well but may be too complicated for them.

@BougieBeetle Magical Quest 2 is certainly new to me, and from a quick view on Youtube I'd agree, it does look like a very solid classic 90s platformer - I'll defo give that one a shot - thanks.

More suggestions welcome.
