Bump (intentionally)

Hello:

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?
