How do you explain what "broken" means to a toddler (she'll be 3 in July)?

In the past few weeks, Claire has broken a couple of items. I don't think she has meant to break anything, but I tell her not to play with something, she does and is curious about how everything works, and then it ends up broken. When I try and explain that it is broken and cannot be repaired, she says things like "Daddy can fix it," or "we'll get another one at the store."

How do I explain that not everything can be fixed or replaced? Is she just too young to get it?
