Depends on what age and more so intentions.
Washing the car with my 4yo last weekend and he dropped the sponge in gravel, picked it up and continued. now have a bunch of little scratches in the paint but cant be mad, he was trying to help.
Same boy pulling pages out of one of his books knowing it's not correct. Nah mate you can watch me out that book in the bin and off to bed, that's him testing his parents.
Neighbour with same aged girl just got a Tesla with white interior, why? kids are messy, they will drop things, spill things, climb on things either to reach something or just for the challenge.
accept that and acknowledge thing will be messy until somewhere in school age (don't really know haven't reached that point yet) both you and the kid will have much less stressful life.
As a teen I assembled model kits, had friends/cousins similar age that would open the display case and handle them and of course something would fall off.
Again intentions weren't bad just wanted a closer look but come on what part of behind a closed glass door made you think you were supposed to pick them up? old enough to know better by this point.

My hobby room, workshop and garage are always locked, off-limits to my kids. Problem solved.
I'm trying the opposite approach, let him in and take away the mystery and he'll loose interest. It's starting to work (only lived here since last December) He still likes to go into the garage but gets bored of it much quicker now.
I do realise I'm going to have to do it all again when kid #2 gets older as well so while away yet.
And yeh Top Gear is guilty of this destruction for entertainment as well with some of their cars.
You can't get mad at people destroying things while they are simply obsolete and people are dumping on mass, I'll even forgive people that don't know that say something like an old computer is desired by a small community and thinks they are just smashing some "old junk"
But yeh like the linked video, a boxed monitor that he must of known the worth as he didn't do the same to the PC, consumerism at it's ugliest.
