According to Oxford Dictionary
be hard on somebody/something: to be likely to hurt or damage something
Looking at a computer screen all day can be very hard on the eyes.
The dictionary says we can use "be hard on something" and they don't state clearly what something must be.
So the "something" here often refers to parts of a body like "your eyes/ back/knees etc".
My question is
Can the "something" be a non-human physical objects like a table, a chair, toys, or a bowl or things like that?
For example, when a boy tried to pull, crumple, and twist a rubber toy car, can we say "don't be hard on your toy car"?
