Are you looking for a deeper symbolism in this, or just to identify each letter? I'd say:

Apple, burger, cookie, donut, elephant, flowers, golf ball, house, igloo, jeans, kangaroo, leaves, monster, ninja, ouch, princess, queen, runner, strength, tools, underwear, valentine, watermelon, x-ray, yummy, zebra.

I'd say R looks more like Richard Simmons.

The N looks more like a knight to me... I had to read pocams comment and look again before I saw a ninja.

"F" looks like Flower Girl to me.

F looks like Female to me.

I thought f was for face. I had to look long to get to ninja, but if it were black instead of silver, ninja would have been easy. (Maybe it's just phonetic, and it is a (k)night?)

I think the ones where the letter IS the thing work best. So Apple, Burger, Donut, Elephant and so on.

Then you have the ones like Cookie, Flower, Ouch, Strong and Yummy, where the word is either something on or near the letter, or else is an adjective describing the thing. Those work less well for me.

I just emailed Mike, here is his reply (thanks, Mike!):

Whoever wrote this:

Apple, burger, cookie, donut, elephant, flowers, golf ball, house, igloo, jeans, kangaroo, leaves, monster, ninja, ouch, princess, queen, runner, strength, tools, underwear, valentine, watermelon, x-ray, yummy, zebra.

is spot-on!

Oh, in case it isn't obvious, Mike is the designer of the alphabet we're talking about. I forgot to mention that...
