what is the difference between abec 3 bearings and abec 5 bearings?

My son wants a skateboard for christmas. He is seven years old. I know the level (1 3 5 7 9) has an effect on the speed. I don't want something that going to just fly out from under him... but I don't want something that is super slow either. When i was at the store the wheels seemed to spin either faster or slower (like there was more resistance)

What do you recommend?

    Who cares if it's super slow? He's 7? He doesn't need a fast board at that age, let him learn slower then build him up to faster wheels, you can always switch them out if you buy a real board.
