GameCube Games for my Kids

Hey all,
I purchased a GameCube for Christmas (we already have a PS2 & Xbox) and would love to know which games you would recommend for a 6 year old boy and a 4 year old girl (I am most concerned about games for her).

I went ahead and purchased the Mario Dance Pad game (got it for a great bargain) and the gamecube came with Mario Party 7 (or something like that). Other good games?

What about games using the conga?

Oh...and what about a game that my son and I could play together (co-op).

Thanks in advance!

Here are a few topics from the past year:

Cn I get some Gamecube advice?
Best system for a 4-year-old girl?
Christmas Gift Help

I have a 7 yo son and a 5 yo daughter and they love their GameCube.

The games they play the most are:
  • Mario Kart: Double Dash
  • Super Monkey Ball
  • Super Monkey Ball 2
  • Mario Party 6
  • Animal Crossing
  • Pokemon Collesium
  • WaveRace
  • Mario Golf
  • Super Smash Bros Melee
  • PacMan Vs (needs a GBA to play it)
  • Luigi's Mansion

... and a few others.

You can get a Dora game at amazon.com (it's a toys-r-us/amazon exclusive)
I bought it for a x-mas gift for my 4 year old this year. She is a BIG Dora fan so I think this game is going to be a big hit with her.
As far as co-op goes, how about one of the star wars titles?

The kids played the conga's a lot when we first got them last x-mas, but they haven't wanted to play donkey conga in like 6 months now.

Yeah, I'd also recommend these:

Mario Kart: Double Dash
Super Monkey Ball (fun multiplayer for everyone)
Super Monkey Ball 2 (fun multiplayer for everyone)
Animal Crossing (simple yet addictive gameplay)
Super Smash Bros Melee (fun multiplayer for everyone)

Gamecube is easily the best system for children in that age range.
