Bump (intentionally)

My daughter was really angry and she flung her toy bear onto the wall, the bear's head hit on the wall really hard(She intended to hurt the bear's head). Then I shouted:

Are you trying to bump the bear's head onto the wall?

Is it correct to use "bump" here? If "bump" means to hit somebody/ something by accident, then I think I should not use "bump" here, because in the above context my daughter intentionally wanted to hurt the bear's head.

Am I correct? Thank you.

    Hullo Ridge. I'd use bang ~ bump isn't violent enough.
    Are you (deliberately) trying to bang the bear's head against the wall?
