I recommend taking a look at the font self extension for illustrator (about $40). You can click and drag objects into the extension to create a font.
But, if you want to export the objects as Ai or SVG (Scalable vector graphics), you can select the objects you want, right click, select "export selection", select the objects you want to export in the dialog box, select "SVG" as the format, select the folder you want to export to in "export to", then click Export Asset. Should work for your needs.
