    a child who breaks everything

    What do you call a child who breaks everything especially his / her toys to understand or discover something? I'm not looking for "curious".

    Re: a child who breaks everything

    Do you mean that they break them violently so that they don't work any more, or that they disassemble them to see how they work and then (sometimes) put them back together again?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I meant the latter.
    But would you please tell the word that we use for the former?

    They are inquisitive. They have an enquiring mind.

    If they just break them without wishing to discover something they are destructive.
